“Amazing meal in small town Ontario”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Rushed to have lunch in Wellington we stopped at this amazing restaurant. My partner had a delicious pasta and I had the roast beef sandwich with the soup of the day. The roast beef was perfectly cooked. The baguette was fresh, just the right amount of horseradish and the pea soup delicious. I have eaten here before and Chef Lily Sullivan has never disappointed. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner when driving through Prince Edward County.

“Great bistro lunch in PEC - soup and sandwiches were perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We happened upon East & Main by accident just driving around PEC recently and we were so glad we did. We loved the vibe of this modern style bistro and the staff were friendly and attentive. I had cream of cauliflower soup which was delicious and a club sandwich (which I requested without bacon so they piled on more chicken instead!). Would have loved to have tried a dinner there but alas we were on our way home so will have to make a return trip. Definitely worth driving a bit to find this place.

“A final dinner in Wellington PEC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We saved the best for last. This restaurant had been recommended to us for lunch and dinner so we selected it for our last dinner of our great trip to PEC. I had selected an appetizer that I did not particularly enjoy, the rest of our meal was delicious. The service was great, thanks to the very attentive staff. The decor is very pleasant, elegant without being uncomfortable. It was great to overhear conversations of familiarity that other vacationers were returning for another great meal. After our coffee the bill was given and the cost of my appetizer had been deducted........wow! A great way to end a great trip around beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario.

“Great vibe, local food and wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

There's really nothing to complain about here. Local wines, local ingredients, makes for delicious food. The place has a great vibe. Service was pretty good, fellow diners were friendly and chatted us up.

I had the duck which was perfect.

Would definitely be back if ever we drive around Wellington again!

“Fabulous Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Once again, the staff at East & Main provided a memorable experience for celebrating our wedding anniversary. The service and timing was impeccable, and as usual, we were not disappointed by the food or the presentation. Featuring local food and wines, our whole meal was so delicious and great value! We will be back!
