“The perfect place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Sometimes you just want a little lunch, a place where you can take a break from your walkabout in Niagara on the Lake, and maybe just share a few menu items with some friends. Well that's what our family did this past weekend and it was the perfect solution for some hungry kiddies and adults too!

We sat outside on the terrace and we were fortunate to get a seat right away. We sat looking straight out at the breathtaking winery under a lovely covered seating area shielding us from the sun and making it most comfortable. Our two very young boys were more than welcomed by the staff and treated just as royally. They were even welcomed to play in the open green space if they so desired. I found this to be most hospitable for sometimes children struggle with having to sit patiently for their meal.

Our party of six elected to just order a few items to share and sample as we were only needing a light lunch. Looking back, I wish we would have ordered more as the value and flavors were worth every bite!

The signature burger was adored by my ten year old son, who would have eaten another I am sure. The pulled pork was beautiful as you could actually see the gorgeous meat and it was not drenched in sauce, but rather infused with great flavours topped with a peach chutney and melted oka cheese. The designer poutine, as I like to call it, was rock star quality! My eight year old son literally said: "Merry Christmas to Me!" as the server placed it in front of him. If you love cheese as much as I do then you really should entertain the idea of trying the cheese board. Feel free to ask for some extra bread if you feel there is not enough to go with it. That's what we did and the server was most generous to do so. The horseradish cheddar was dynamic!

If you are struggling on what to order in the line of beverages, just order the iced cuvee. This beautiful sparkling wine is made with hand picked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes with a touch of ice wine. It is so refreshing, flavoursome, and such a lovely social beverage. If you are to try just one thing at Peller, this would be what I suggest!

Peller Estates is such a special place to visit and has us wanting to go back for more!

“Beautiful indoors and outdors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

Restaurant is beautiful both indoors and outdoors. We were a group of 6 and ordered a la carte. Everything was done with a light hand and respect for flavors and fresh foods. Beautifully presented.

“Wonderful dinner in a very scenic spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

We had dinner with friends here last week and had a wonderful experience. The restaurant may seem a little pretentious - and perhaps it is - but we had a great time. We sat on the patio. Their patio is simply beautiful with views of the winery and surrounding landscape. The food was good and they had nice local wine - naturally, we had the estate's wine...
Highly recommended for a small getaway especially if you visit busy Niagara and want to have a quiet and relaxing dinner after.

“CLASSY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Beautiful winery with great wines. Also a restaurant where they pair wines with food. We looked at the menu and it is very pricey and the foods a little exotic. But not bad enough to totally rule it out on the next visit!
