an annual (at least) getaway for us even if we live pretty far away. The chef special never disappoints and they have kept the same food quality and value over years. Love this joint!

The wait was a tad bit long for our food to arrive, but once it did arrive, I don't regret waiting. The food was delicious and fresh, as well as superb quality. It is quite pricey, but it is definitely worth going to if you have a special event or want to celebrate something.

The chicken and fish here are cooked to perfection and accompanied by a generous portion of sides. Well worth the cost of the meal. The decor of the restaurant is also quite nice.

We stopped in for a quick lunch. Had the cauliflower soup which was superb! Such a delight to enjoy a soup with an excellent stock. The accompanying panini was nice but not a taste sensation. Enjoyed it but not a show stopper.

I had the scallop app, the Arctic char meal and shared the canele for dessert. Fresh, tasty, well- balanced plates. Loved it! What a... More

Lunch on a weekday. My sister and I shared a delicious and generous salad with the Ploughman's lunch. The platter was filled with colours for the eyes to admire, and wonderful tasty treats. Some dried meats, two kinds of bread, eggs, vegetables, many welcomed surprises, lettuce. All was on a tray arranged perfectly. It also had generous portions. Looking forward... More
