You can't help but be charmed by the patio as you enter this historic building made of Kingston limestone. And the view of Lake on the Mountain is wonderful too. We like to sit outside or in the bar side of the restaurant. So lots of pluses for ambiance.

Then there is the owner and staff -- friendly, welcoming - engage with them and you feel you are among friends.

The food can be inventive and really wonderful. The chef uses fresh ingredients, often grown in the side garden. They have there own wines and a good selection of County wines and wines from away. There are some mainstays that are especially good, such as the lamb shank and the chicken dishes. The gumbo is tasty but generally overcooked. All in all, we find it a most enjoyable place to go with lots of comforts.

Even if you are not the biggest fan of fries, you have to try them here. Make sure that you make a reservation if you want to sit outside (and you WANT to sit outside)

This place is incredible, it really is. The location is absolutely beautiful and the food is divine. I have been here a few times in a small group of two, and once with a large party from work, and each time I have been highly impressed. The waitresses are very friendly and accommodating, the food is unbelievably wholesome, fresh and delicious, and the old Inn building with its patio overlooking Lake-on-the-Mountain couldn't afford a better location for this sensational restaurant. I can't wait for it to re-open this coming summer!

The little cabin was so clean and thoughtfully stocked for an extended stay. We were only there for 2 delightful nights but wish we could have stayed longer!
The biggest surprise was the lovely gourmet meal we enjoyed our first night there!!
The Chretian family have a superb establishment..clean and charming (just like the photos) and most of all we felt welcome!

This is a really good restaurant serving bistro type of food. In the summer you can stay on the terrace and enjoy spectacular views of the Lake on the Mountain and Lake Ontario, while in the wintertime they have an open wooden fireplace that creates a particular atmosphere. We had the Gazpacho soup and the chicken sandwich on ciabatta with pistou and it was really delicious. These guys use local fresh ingredients, they braise and smoke their meat themselves and sell delicious organic salad dressings and barbecue sauces. This restaurant provides with a authentic flavour of Prince Edward County.
