If you happen to visit Manitoulin Island in Ontario you MUST eat here. It's in a hamlet called Manitowaning. Looks uninspiring from the outside and like no more than a regular small town bar inside but the food (prepared by the chef/proprietor) is AMAZING - absolutely world class. First night I had duck stew with wild chanterelles served over lentils. One of the most exquisite things I have ever eaten. The following night I had an outstanding seafood Paella. These dishes cost a little over $20 - fantastic value. The menu changes daily. Highly recommended. Its a long way from anywhere so stay at the Friends motel, just up the road, which I can only describe as the Ritz of the motel world.

This is a bar and grill with great food. I had the lamb dinner and really enjoyed it. Friendly service, too.

Some menu items were already gone when we arrived at 6:00, but we ate well regardless. The menu was surprisingly different for a small place - chanterelle mushroons and braised lamb was unexpected, and very good. Well worth eating here.

The waitress was charming and engaging and didn't seem like we were inconveniencing her. The food was ok, I had a burger and fries. Homemade patty at least. My friends had wings and seemed to really like them. Not a bad place to eat at all.

Everyone is very freindly in Manitowaning which is defeintely part of its charm. We had the special - pan fried trout, which was very tasty.
