We love the tapas and the menu. Find the portions abit small. Whenever we do eat there, we enjoy the meal however, it is very noisy for such a classy little restaurant. That makes it somewhat disappointing especially when you can't have a conversation easily with your tablemates!

I love going to this place for date night or with my girlfriends for delicious tapas and drinks. The service is fantastic and we've never been disappointed with the food!

This is one of the finer restaurants in Ancaster. They cater to both those who want to drop in for drinks and a chat or a nice meal. They do a fine job of both, the food and staff are good what more could you ask.

This is a great local restaurant in Ancaster that has always pleased us. From a nice summer patio lunch or a special occasion you are always made to feel welcome. The restaurant has a great wine list as well as options of tapas or full menu so if you want to go solo or share it's always fun. I enjoy the vitality of the restaurant as the locals often gather at the sit down bar and enjoy each others company along with live music on the weekends.
You can come as you are or dress for the occasion, you always feel comfortable at Rousseau House.

We come here frequently because we live close by. Located in a lovely historic stone house on Ancaster's main street, the restaurant has several different areas – a bar with live music at times, the lower dining room, and a more formal dining room upstairs, plus a lovely garden room off to the side (our favorite spot), and an outdoor patio (most welcome in summer). All rooms have a warm atmosphere with decor that matches the historic style of the house.

The food is delicious, both at lunch and dinner, with the choice of small and large plates. The menu varies seasonally and offers a variety of meat and seafood dishes, as well as vegetarian choices. They also have a good wine list. We enjoy coming here and are lucky to have it within walking distance (at least in the summer).

We've been to Sunday brunch a couple of times, once having to wait far too long for our food, but quite satisfactory a second time. I prefer weekday lunches there over the Sunday brunch. The service can be an uneven, but in general we have found it to be good to excellent.
