With the "DAW" event going on I was looking at some of the restaurants on its list and this place stood out above all the others. It's away from the downtown traffic so parking was... read more

This is my favourite restaurant. We go to it every time we are in Winnipeg. The five course meal is always wonderful and a perfect way to celebrate an anniversary or just go out for a nice supper. The restaurant is very cosy and warm, perfect on a cold winter night. Staff are fantastic. Quite the hidden Gem!

Great service, fantastic food. Try the pork tenderloin- it was awesome. Small cozy restaurant, I think it used to be a home. Chef came our T and spoke with us. Really enjoyed it.

Our dishes arrived perfectly spaced -- a very relaxed evening. Chef Dario has a unique ability to combine multiple amazing flavours, spices and herbs into incredible dishes. A very cozy and comfortable place. I would rank this place among the very best in Winnipeg.

They had a special for 2 can dine with a variety of options for a multi course meal. Everything was delicious. The wine selected was perfect for the meal we chose. We cannot wait to go again. Service was wonderful. It was a wonderful night. One of our best date night picks ever.

We absolutely loved the feel of this little bistro taking us back to our time in Europe. Small and cozy but I wouldn't complain if they raised the lighting just a tiny bit. The greeting was for lack of a better work, curt. Throughout the evening things warmed up a bit. Certainly friendly but not what I would call engaging.... More

I called to make a reservation to celebrate something special on tuesday at 9pm. The person who answered the phone was very rude and asked me to go earlier. The first thing I thought was: They do not like to work! Then why are they open until 11pm? Then, I asked him if they had something special for birthdays, and... More

This restaurant offers a five course meal with your choice of appetizer and entrée for $39 Canadian. The selections were varied and all were unique. The theme is Latin American, but the chef obviously places his own unique style into every dish. If you want spicy, the chef has his own hot sauce he will bring you and my dish,... More
