“Busy place but a lot of fun”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We came during peak dining time (without a reservation) on a Friday night during high resort season (July); the owner said they were busy and we'd have to wait a few minutes, but all would be OK. He was right. The food was great and once we got started (after a few minutes as promised), the service prompt. The staff worked with our limited English and when things calmed down a bit, we had a nice chat with the owner (and a great desert). I had clams and pasta; my wife had Tuscan bread salad--both were great and the right portion size.

Several large groups were eating nearby and seemed to be having a good time as well.

“GO!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

At first I thought the 20 reviews might have been friends to boost the reviews... but not really! This is very good food with attention to details which surprised me. Presentation was very nice, portions well balanced, soup was really good and hot, bread was fresh, and the main course was very tasty and original. Nice list of local wines! Go for it, you won't be disappointing!

“The place to invite your good friends to share a good meal”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Enjoyed the owners friendly service.

The menu is polyvalent and meets the needs of the gourmet.

We went for supper three times and they change menus.

Thank you.

“Very nice and creative”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Had a lovely lunch at this newly reopened restaurant in Bromont. Friendly staff, very creative menu. I had the Monte Cristo sandwich on a really nice ciatta bread with a side of fries with a smokey bacon mayo to dip them in. Yum. My wife had the mushroom fig risotto which was delicious as well. Worth the visit.
