“nice place for brunch”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stopped here for brunch after a walk back from our visit to Rideau Hall. We were starting to get a little sunburned so we were pleased to see the outside seating area was very shaded and decided it would be a good place to spend an hour or so. The omelets are very good and go quite nicely with beer.

“Avoid this place if busy”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I have consistantly had bad service at this restaurant when they are busy. Beer glasses are dirty, food is more than 1 hour for delivery and tastes poor.

“Food average and service slow”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

The location is great.. very close to the National Art Gallery. I had the fish and chips. We sat on the patio and was really nice. The fish and chips were ok but it took forever to serve us. I thought they forgotten us at one point. Perhaps it was a bad day for the staff ?

“Terrible”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

We ate here because of the location of the outdoor seating area (looking at Parliament and the National Gallery of Canada). The service from the beginning seemed a little rude, but we figured it was just Canadian attitudes or big-city rudeness. We thought that our waitress would be better, wanting a good tip. We were wrong. Our waitress was the rudest we've ever had, no joke, and didn't even talk to us when she handed us the bill. The food was way too expensive for what we got and it wasn't even good. Do yourself a favor and avoid this restaurant. Rude staff, bad food, high prices.
