“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

We dined here on June 17th , didn't have a reservation, but Erik found us a table. The food was excellent and Emma H our server was very prompt and professional. Because we enjoyed our meal so much we made a reservation for the next evening.That night we had Kenny as our server and even though it was very busy he was very attentive. My husband commented that "he could eat here every night" so Kenny replied. "that's why I work here"
We highly recommend this restaurant , but make sure you have a reservation.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

We went in due to proximity to our hotel and the fact we were starving hungry when we got to Gan. Food was good, service ok, average value for money. Worth a visit but wouldn't recommend making a special trip.

“Outstanding dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

I had the opportunity to dine at this restaurant while I was visiting the thousand islands. It was relatively easy to find, and the restaurant was very modern with an open kitchen. I ordered the funghi pizza and linguini alla bolognese. The pizza was good, but the linguini was amazing with a fantastic meat sauce. My meal ended with tiramisu, which was divine. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits the area!

“Gluten Free Pasta - :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

The atmosphere is relaxed yet classy. The food and its presentation is wonderful. The staff is friendly and it was a walk to our Inn and to the waterfront.
