Just got home from taking my cousin to this cafe for her birthday lunch - my first visit. When I booked, I requested a table with a view of the falls as recommended by a friend and we got it. It was so spectacular - thunderous water cascading down with mist rising and all the surrounding trees and bushes coated... More

We were two, celebrating a birthday on a Friday evening, and we had a very positive experience on our first visit to this restaurant. The decor is very attractive, stone walls and pine floors in this old mill building. Tables are well spaced and we were seated next to a window overlooking the waterfall over the dam. The service was... More

Want to go for a summer drive with lunch/dinner/brunch....this is the place you should end up at. A beautifully designed bistro housed in the lower floor of a flour mill and located in downtown Almonte only 20 minutes from Ottawa. Lunch features beautifully prepared sandwiches, calzones, burgers even bacon, caramelized onion mushroom Mac n' Cheese that was over the top.... More

The whole night was great. Great atmosphere, fabulous service and wonderful food. Was there with friends for dinner, two of whom are gluten free for medical reasons. The staff are knowledgeable about all the options to suit dietary restrictions. Our server brought bread and gluten free crackers - a sure sign of attentiveness to clients. The food was amazing. The... More

Sophisticated cuisine in a small town. This restaurant has everything you want in fine dining. Top end decor in an old style building, with cordon bleu dining and friendly small town service. A more than adequate wine list at reasonable prices. If you are looking for a wonderful dining experience without big city airs this is the place for you.... More

We knew the restaurant was popular, but since we visited for lunch on a -18 degree day, there were a couple of spare tables. The menu is small, but varied, and we settled on the warm beet & parsnip salad and the thin crust, black olive/shredded barbecued pork pizza of the day. We perused the fifteen or so wines on...

The Heirloom restaurant is a little pretentious but served us enjoyable meals during our recent visit. We recommend the braised beef ribs & crusted salmon. Don't expect to take a doggie bag home for Rover though....& the beef ribs could have used more vegetables as well. Prices on the high side.

We tried the Heirloom Cafe Bistro while exploring the shops of Almonte. The food was delicious and deserts to die for. Does get quite busy, need to arrive early for lunch before they are full or reserve a table. Have some very good local craft beers on tap. Will return again when in Almonte.

Heard great things about this restaurant but our group of 5 found it to be average. We were there for a family brunch (3 adults, 2 kids). The inside was beautiful, the service was great but the food was a bit mediocre.

Finding a special atmosphere, excellent and varied menu in an out of town café where diners can take their time receiving great service and exquisite food encapsulate our first dining experience in this old Amonte Mill Café. Somewhat pricy for $75 per person with one glass of wine, an excellent three course dinner which we plan to experience anew.

Thank Pierre B
