Excellent service again .All over Niagara Ontario we found the people so very pleasant and helpful.We stopped here for some snacks and a nice pitcher of cool lager..Was so enjoyable to sit at this pleasant spot with beautiful gardens and enjoy the views and just people watch.A very enjoyable time was had by all.

“Nice view, food ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The view is great but I was disappointed with the food. My husband and I shared a plate of nachos and the cheese wasn't even totally melted. The service wasn't great either. The waiter barely said 2 words to us and never came back to check and see if the food was okay.

“Secret Garden shouldnt be a secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I have been coming to this restaurant for at least 10 years. This was my husband and son's first time. The menu is easy to read and the server was very good. We went in the middle of the afternoon for lunch. You can expect this place to be busy when the garden starts flowering. I have seen lines out the door in the past. Prices are reasonable and the food is delicious. Ask to sit near the front for a nice view of the falls. My husband said he wanted to come back and my son wanted to take one of the mailboxes with him. It is a nice break from the chain restaurants on Clifton Hill and at the Fallsview resort. A gift shop is attached-you can enter directly from there or go around the front through the patio.

“Great little spot hidden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Have had breakfast & lunch here. Always a good meal at a more reasonable price than the larger chain restaurants in the area. First found it through a Groupon deal & have returned over the years.
