The owner of this place is rude and aggressive. The food takes FOREVER to arrive...and not because of the wait staff. The kitchen itself is really slow. Nice looking place, by the water, but do not go if you have to eat in a hurry. Even if you tell them, they don't care. If you ever get your food and... More

Looking for a place by the river when visiting Hawkesbury we were recommended this restaurant and have enjoyed a good meal both on the patio and inside on separate visits. The food and service is the same. Had the breakfast meal for lunch which was very good value.

Meet with friends there. The patio is great, overlooking the Ottawa river. Nice brise in Summer. The menu is big, but noting special. Waited long to get our food. Had the ribs which turns out good. The other plates looked good too. Prices are okay, for what you get.

Restaurant overlooks the water. Unfortunately when we arrived it was getting dark and we couldn't enjoy that aspect. The menu offers pretty much any type of food you could want. It is a little lacking with description of what you are ordering...most of the time there is just a title but doesn't specify what come on/with it. I had the... More

The location , overlooking the Ottawa River , opposite bank of which one can enjoy the landscape of Quebec small villages is ideal...In summer it is bustling with pleasure boaters and summer events enthusiasts. The menu is primarily greek with many other delicious... More

Overlooking the Ottawa river, this restaurant has an ideal location and offers outside patio seating. The menu is quite large, but overall this restaurant requires renovations, new chairs, proper servers that know the menu and also know their available alcoholic beverages. We were six individuals and ordered various appetizers and of course dinner. Although most of us were ok with... More

The restaurant is easy to get to, is by the water, and the atmosphere is quite nice. The portions are very generous and reasonably priced in comparison to some other restaurants. Service was prompt and adequate, although when I asked to take the rest home the waitress gave me a box at the table and I was expected to box... More
