“Fresh and good see food. A little expensive”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I had the smoked scallops and lardon bacon on endive and orange salad. The dressing was excellent.

Desserts were even better... Carrot cake and chocolate fudge are a must, according to my family.

“Small, Local and Great”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This place is a Gem. A small locally owned restaurant that needs reservations any time. It is so good, so fresh. Service is fantastic.

“Fine dining, kids welcome!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

It's a treat to find an excellent restaurant where the menu can be "tweaked", in their words, for children! On top of that, the service is good, as you'd expect where one of the owners gained her experience at one of the area's top eating places, Les Fougeres.

The two owners know their seafood, and also own a seafood smokehouse just up the road. Traditional cod fish and chips with mushy peas, is a specialty, but I also enjoyed a warm salad with a giant smoked scallop, and sampled a good-sized Raspberry Point oyster for dinner. Coming across a restaurant which knows oysters well is rare! Others in the group enjoyed onion soup and jerk chicken.

It's worth the easy twenty-minute drive from downtown Ottawa, plus excellent value!

“if you have a long lunch break...it is worth it”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

I have been here a few times with collegues for lunch.
The food is great, the service is good...it is just not possible to be in and out in one hour, which isn't a problem if you know what to expect!
We have had many of the menu items and have never been disappointed!
