We are a real Bistro, not a burger joint! Excellent service, a quaint setting and fabulous food. We are consistently rated as one of the best restaurants in Amherstburg. Our menu is a taste experience: Belgian Waffles and Eggs Benedict at Breakfast, Home-made Soups, Paninis, Specials and Salads at Lunch. Our Dinner menu is awesome . . . French Country Bistro - Braised Lamb Shanks, Coq au vin, Steaks and much more. Crusty French Baguettes are baked every day and served with our dips, spreads, appetizers, artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, smoked salmon, pates etc. We feature special features every day. Eat inside or out, in our casual dining room, on our porch or our front lawn. Traveling with your dog? Rover will have fresh water and a treat for him/her.
