Hadn't been here in years and was hesitant t go because I'd remembered it being quite expensive. We went at lunch time this past weekend, and the lunch menu is quite average pricing, but there was nothing average about the food. My fiance and I each had a panini and soup. Both sandwiches were amazing - fabulous flavours! I also... More

We went there for the 1st time since moving to Okotoks a few months ago. Ed (owner) was busy but was a perfect host! We ordered an appetizer, dinner & dessert, all were fabulously prepared & presented. We will most certainly be back in the near future.

180 degrees from mass market dining. Casual and exceptionally friendly atmosphere with 5 star dining rarely found outside of Provence France. Worth every penny and then some.

Five friends and I were treated as if we were the only diners though each table seemed to be enjoying the same service. The food was great as it always is. The chef came to our table to ask if we were enjoying our meals and had a short chat with us. I am from Okotoks and have dined there... More

A very special experience made by great food and Ed's welcoming service. Wonderful preparation and presentation. Small and cozy setting. Try the escargot and the creme brule.

Tasty food, great service, friendly owners. All in the oldest building in Okotoks, the old post office was build in 1892 and is still a beacon of downtown.

Unfortunately this was not worth the wait.... Was expecting a very nice interior and it was very old and dated....I respect the owners idea to have it small so people are waited on but me and my boyfriend were there for 3.5hrs.....that is unacceptable for an appie, main-course and dessert and all were not worth the higher then usual price....

Small restaurant run by husband and wife team. Great quiet atmosphere, the place only has 6-7 tables! Food is excellent and with beautiful presentation. I will definitely be back

Good food cooked well. No TVs on the wall so you aren't competing with sports games when talking. Husband and wife manage and run this place - attention to detail is amazing- and they do actually care!! You won't be disappointed.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Had a ham and brie sandwich that was fantastic and they were super accommodating with the customization of my order too.
