Lovely staff, great pizza. Had to wait 45 minutes for a table but would do so again. When left two hours later people were still trying to get in. It's a nice area. Leave your name, go for a stroll, enjoy the views and come...back for your table. It worked for us.More

Upon my first visit to Gananoque, I refused the idea of waiting in line more than forty minutes for a pizza, regardless how good may people say it is. This time... we had our names on a list and gone for a walk, awaiting to...be contacted. As they prefer large groups and we were only a couple of people... For one hour and a half... even if we returned a few times to check on the status, there was absolutely nothing available. Eventually... we gave up and cancelled our reservation. I am pretty sure this situation can be improved, even without rushing customers to finish their food. My suggestion - which would minimize frustrated potential clients like us - would be to dismiss people from the beginning when the place is packed rather than leading them on with false hopes of "half hour availability" as we were.More

A must do if your in the area! The terrasse is so cute and the food is delicious. Although the menu is mostly pizza and salad, it is light and filling at the same time. So nice to have a great time that is affordable!

Found this place driving by and exploring Gananoque. There isn’t a big sign announcing its place but we saw people outside enjoying a meal. After some Googling, we decided to try this restaurant after a busy day on a cruise tour. After leaving the cruise,...we walked 5 minutes to this gem. Luckily we first that day as it just opened at 4 pm. We chose a nice table outside and ordered the wood fired pizza. I had the pep and mushroom pizza and my wife had the shrimp pizza. Both were excellent. They also offer craft beer and special drinks. The choices of pizzas are varied and difficult to choose as they all looked good. Good reason to return one day to Gananoque. We will return.More

One of the highlights of our visit to Gananoque It had a magical evening ambiance, some most scrumptious healthy selections . and extremely pleasant wait staff including the manger /owner. We loved all our pizza selections on Friday night . Medium sized pizza dishes were...more than plenty. The cheese cake special (apple and caramel compote) of the day was to die for. Heads up: This place is popular and you cannot not make a reservation. and you will probably get put on a wait list upon arrival at dinner time, but the hostess is very organized and will text you when space becomes available, so you can go for a walk by the river for a half hour rather than simply line up outside. Talented Live entertainment heard on patio on Saturday during the day.More

This charming restaurant looks like a fairy tale house in the woods, including stone ovens to cook pizza in the lovely garden, the staff is very kind and friendly. We ordered pizza and salad to share and both were delicious. The purple house salad is...definitely a must !!More

Visiting Gananoque for the first time...We happened to drive by and caught a view of this quaint and lovely outdoor garden, with great patio lighting and plants everywhere. Pleasantly discovered it specialized in wood fired pizza and salads. From the service, the ambiance, the music,...fresh herbs...and the incredibly delicious pizza...we were delighted with finding this place. I had the special, steak w/shrimp, garlic aioli, caramelized onion, basil and cheese. Wow, fantastic.More

A wonderful outdoor environment- beautiful gardens and ambience. Food was absolutely delicious. We were recommended this restaurant several times by locals. One person told us the salads were amazing.. and I ate a garden salad with delicious maple balsamic vinaigrette and my partner had a...tasty Caesar salad. The fire oven pizzas were also highly recommended and so we ordered a butter chicken pizza to split and it didn’t disappoint!! There are no reservations. You can eat in or out. If a beautiful day or night, I strongly suggest to eat outside amongst the organic homegrown veggie garden and the unique “wooden doors” fence!!More

We stumbled on this restaurant and were fortunate enough to get a table in the intimate patio surrounded by a gorgeous garden. We shared a thin crust pizza as we weren’t really hungry and it was perfect with a bottle of wine. Wine was very...reasonably priced. The service was great. A special place to spend an evening on this romantic patio. Highly recommend and will return. Thank you for a lovely evening.More

We drove by this place after 3 hours of kayaking and we stopped in front of the Purple house. We were trying to get on the road for our 4 hours home, but something about the garden patio hypnotically said... come in and relax...try our...pizza...have a Prosceco... so we did. It was just what we needed and we didn't care getting home late. There was so much personality about this place. The fence is made up of doors, they actually pick stuff from the garden for the food... The pizza was excellent and watching it being cooked in the oven beside your outdoors was special.
