This is a wonderful restaurant just outside of Trail, BC. The food was excellent. ... as good as I have had and the service even better. .... ok... so perhaps we got even better service because Sian knows the owners well but watching the other tables it seemed they were every bit as happy as we were.

We just got into the Trail airport and it was close to lunchtime and there it was, at the hihgway junction. We'd heard about this place from our B&B host family so we decided to try it. Very happy with the meal. The service was also excellent.

I've been to the restaurant twice on two separate occasions disappointed both times would not even take out because they were too busy cleaning up the restaurant at the end of the night while they are still serving customers would not accept my order not impressed

We arrived late, shared a lasagna and garden salad, and a couple glasses of the crisp, bone dry white wine. The pasta sauce was too sweet for our liking, but the meal on the whole was exactly what we wanted and needed.

Cafe Michael bills itself SS high end but that is a misnomer. It is casual at best. The food was brought out in such quick succession that you'd think they wanted you out NOW! Atmosphere was anything but relaxed and food was basic . The Cajun prawn lacked any seasoning ie no peppers or garlic and the garlic toast as... More

Pretty average not great cooking..menu never changes..I don't waste my time or money here. These folks attempted to open a location in the old restaurant called Gabe's in Castlegar,, they have used items off of his menu for years..Gabe was an artiste', these people are not..that closed, I guess Castlegarians are more discerning that Trail and area..

Very tender & tasty Prime Rib ( Friday and Saturdays) meal with all the fixins. Fresh baked Chicken Maryland also a hit . Good, warm atmosphere. Must come early for the prime rib when fresh out of the oven!

At lunch I Enjoyed a clubhouse sandwich with fries for $10.00. Real turkey not processed, with bacon tomato lettuce. Beautiful decor with an abundance of plants. Service was excellent.

This place is quite quaint, great for business lunch or for dinner. Bar none the best Caesar salad that you will ever have, as well as the crapes! My husband loves the house special pizza.
