My husband & I found the Riverwalk Restaurant by accident while visiting Bracebridge. We stopped in at the Visitor Centre at the Bridge on Manitoba Street and asked where to get the best lunch? We were told that Riverwalk was downstairs in their Visitor building (it was an historic Woolen Mill). If we hadn't been told about it, we would never have found it!
It was worth the search! It was a pleasant June afternoon and we chose to eat outside on the balcony - overlooking the Bracebridge Falls. What a view and we enjoyed the sound of the rushing waters.
The food was AMAZING! We met the owner/chef - David Friesen when we passed by the open kitchen. Fresh focaccia bread had just come from the oven. There were many options on the menu - all sounded wonderful. I don't usually choose a burger for lunch - but the menu description sounded yummy - grass-fed beef topped with Oka cheese. It did not disappoint. I honestly don't remember a better restaurant burger. My husband, who usually chooses vegetarian also ordered the burger - and he loved it! The hostess was very friendly and attentive. We would certainly return to Riverwalk - next time in Bracebridge.

We arrived just before closing for lunch, around 2:00 PM, on a a very wet recent afternoon. By the time we walked downstairs to the warm and cozy dining room we just didn't want to leave. The chef welcomed us as she was preparing canned relishes for sale in the local town and the feeling of being in skilled and friendly hands never left. We were the only guests for the next two hours and we made the most of locally sourced soups, salads, meat, and veggie dishes. The dessert, a towering assortment of the day's sweets, suggested and prepared by the chef for all of us, finished the meal in perfect form. Reasonable prices, fantastic ambiance, and great food. We will be back.

Excellent service and they were open even when the power was out. The atmosphere is beautiful and the food is exquisite. The view of the falls is great. This is a five star restaurant.

Chef David Friesen presented us with one unique surprise after another for a surprise dinner party for my husband. A remarkable evening with outstanding delights! After several light and tasty hors d'oeuvres, we came to the table and were presented with warm, homemade bread and unique appetizers: rabbit on celery root, ostrich, followed by the main meal which was the most succulent beef tenderloin cooked to perfection with asparagus, mashed potatoes. Dessert...well, need I say more? Chef David was friendly, relaxed and well-organized. His restaurant, Riverwalk, has the same level of cuisine. Don't rush your meal. Enjoy every mouthful along with your friends!

Chef David prepared and served a delicious 5 course gourmet dinner for a special birthday feast for my wife and other family members at our house. It is rare to experience a great meal, perfectly prepared and well served without a single cause for concern. David obviously knows his culinary art.
The 'chef at home' gift for my wife was a total surprise for her topped only by David's fine ingredients, great timing and excellent taste. Will definately do it again.
