“Name Has Changed But Still the Same...”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We went there as a group of six for lunch on the 3rd September. The menu selections athough appearing to sound good were just okay. We all ordered from the offered lunch specials. I had te mini-burrito. It was definitely minin was okay tasting with very little mole sauce. The accompnaying refried beans were balnd with a token amount of cheese on top. Rice was bland and cold. My wife ordered a pulled pork sandwich on sur dough bread but it came on a hogie bun and was very land and quite soggy. The accompanying salad was not crips. Others ordered club sandwiches that again came on hogie buns instead of the promised sour dough bread. Fries were bland mass produced fries that cold be hand cut for the price of these orders. One ordered the "soon to be famous" nachos but they can as advertised with rice - in my opinion an excuse to cheap out on the nachos.

Service was good considering we can in at a shift change. Price was high considerng the poor food quality.

We had previously eaten here before when it as a part of the Mexicali Rose's chain. Were very disappointed then -- worst and cheapest excuse for nachos we ever had. Not much has changed here. They should try and simplify their offerings and just make these better as this could be a great littel restaurant.

“Good food”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This place has a great location and look very good. The food is not fantastic but acceptable. Service, cleanness, and quality were al at good level. Go but don't expect great and memorable food.

“Nice place for a drink on the patio”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

This is a really nice place to grab a drink on the patio and maybe some nochos. The main course was good but nothing special. I would come again just for the atmosphere on a nice summer day

“Scenic Restaurant in Perth, Ontario”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is a cute restaurant on the Tay river system in Perth, Ontario.

The first thing I noticed was that this place is not handicapped friendly but that's by design not by choice. You have to go down a full flight of stairs to get to the restaurant.

Once you're there, the hostess greets you and shows you to your table.
We chose to eat on the patio as it overlooks a section of the Tay River.
The service was great and the food was good but not great.
The chips and salsa they bring are small in quantity but still good.

Restrooms are small and well kept except for the smell of urine that has probably soaked into the walls over the years.

For a roamntic drink on a patio, it's a good place.

“Not at all impressed”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We were never offered the complimentary chips and salsa, and my request for a second soft drink went unheeded. The pulled pork sandwich was barely warm, very bland, and not much meat for a large, very ordinary bun. The fries were at least hot and tasty, but quite greasy. The soft drink was in a plastic tumbler which imparted a plasticy flavor. Service was quick and pleasant, but given the forgotten items, not outstanding. All in all, I would choose another restaurant for our next visit.
