Since relocating to Barrie we've tried out most of the restaurants but took a while to get here - and what a treat it is! A charming, comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff impressed us first and set the tone for what was to follow. From starters to mains to dessert we enjoyed every bite. We'll be returning for sure.

We were out with friends, we all had different entrees and everyone enjoyed their selection. Great service, food was well prepared. Great night out! A must try if you're looking for good food and a quiet atmosphere.

I had the Herb Roasted Chicken which was featured on the specials board and my husband had the beef tenderloin. Everything was cooked to perfection and paired with Brussels sprouts and hearty fall vegetables (which we loved) as well as baby potatoes and perogies (the tenderloin) that was very enjoyable. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal... More

My wife and I love this restaurant. The food is consistently amazing, the atmosphere is fun (you can watch the cook prep and plate the food as the kitchen is open-to-view), and the prices are very reasonable. The same can be said for the their service, which has always been of the highest quality. Their menu changes with the season,... More
