We had booked the restaurant for a family reunion/birthday dinner. It was amazing the atmosphere and the food! WOW! the food was incredible I had the Rosemary Lamb Chop with scalloped potatoes and vegetables and it was amazing! The best food I have ever had! I would recommend this place to everyone!

I took my Mom out for dinner here due to high recommendation from everyone. We arrived and the host was great. We sat down. Ordered Crab Dip. It wasn't great. The crab tasted like prepackaged crab and the tuna tasted like can tuna. Was disappointed. The Ceaser (drink) was very watery. Then my Mom order spinach salad with brie cheese... More

It was the first time I had ever eaten there. The service and the food were great! It was nice getting out of Calgary and places where you feel rushed to eat your food. It was a quaint place that I would definitely return to. The beef, Bordeaux and escargot was delish! Would recommend this to anyone.

Hadn't been here in years and was hesitant t go because I'd remembered it being quite expensive. We went at lunch time this past weekend, and the lunch menu is quite average pricing, but there was nothing average about the food. My fiance and I each had a panini and soup. Both sandwiches were amazing - fabulous flavours! I also... More

We went there for the 1st time since moving to Okotoks a few months ago. Ed (owner) was busy but was a perfect host! We ordered an appetizer, dinner & dessert, all were fabulously prepared & presented. We will most certainly be back in the near future.

180 degrees from mass market dining. Casual and exceptionally friendly atmosphere with 5 star dining rarely found outside of Provence France. Worth every penny and then some.

Five friends and I were treated as if we were the only diners though each table seemed to be enjoying the same service. The food was great as it always is. The chef came to our table to ask if we were enjoying our meals and had a short chat with us. I am from Okotoks and have dined there... More

A very special experience made by great food and Ed's welcoming service. Wonderful preparation and presentation. Small and cozy setting. Try the escargot and the creme brule.

Tasty food, great service, friendly owners. All in the oldest building in Okotoks, the old post office was build in 1892 and is still a beacon of downtown.

Unfortunately this was not worth the wait.... Was expecting a very nice interior and it was very old and dated....I respect the owners idea to have it small so people are waited on but me and my boyfriend were there for 3.5hrs.....that is unacceptable for an appie, main-course and dessert and all were not worth the higher then usual price....
