Handy location on the main street (Manitoba St. - north end). Has a ramp for easy access. Middle of the road offerings, with good breakfasts & lunches with occasional festive evening meals. Good value, and atmosphere for the dollar.

My husband and I were staying in Huntsville and came to Bracebridge because he was meeting friends for dinner. We went to R and L and were blown away by the service and food. My husband had the organic beef tenderloin and I had a farfale salmon dish....exquisite! The lighting is perfect and the staff is terrific. Both us and the couple we went with were very happy at this rare gem in Bracebridge, thanks R and L.

For many years we have been going to this spot, long before renovations, we did
take out catering for a large number of folks each August. Now we live in Bracebridge
and it is a friendly spot, great service for lunch, brunch on Sunday or dinner. My lady
friends and I like to celebrate birthdays here. Our Condo is having its Christmas Party
as well. We enjoy taking friends and family and introducing new folks to it.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the fact that the chef came out to help us with wine pairings. Rockeford blue cheese salad was fantastic. My wife loved the cranberry stuffed chicken and my beef bourgenon had a really subtle flavour. Wonderful.

We went to visit Rick and Adam with the intent of having a quick and quiet meal last week. We should have known better. It is difficult to have a quick meal there as every course is so good you want to take your time to just enjoy the experience. The Mushroom salad was probably the best I had ever tasted followed closely buy the Pear and Goat Cheese salad with pecans. Feeling like beef, we both had the Beef Tenderloin which was cooked to perfection. Our server made sure that we knew exactly how it would be cooked and we were not disappointed. The wine was excellent as we had their last bottle of Dog Point. The Carrot Cake, Tea and Coffee finished off a perfect meal for us.
We don't get to R+L Bistro enough but when we do, we are never disappointed. Frankly, we know a lot of people in the area who also like R+L and we have never met someone who has had a bad experience. Keep up the great work. We will be back!
