The service was great. They have a great selection of local wines. We had the goat cheese and mushroom tart, seafood pasta and steak. The tart was different and very good, the pasta was delicious but it was a very small portion for $29. The steak was overcooked, ordered medium, got medium well to well and it was very tough....

Great ambiance, fantastic food and wonderful staff. Tonight's special was venison with mushroom risotto with vegetables. Just. Delicious. The Major had the steak, which he really enjoyed. The bistro has a varied and ingesting menu with truly something for every taste. They are especially careful for those of us with allergies. Great local food served with great care and pride....

During the Labor Day weekend, a group of us went to Prince Edward County to do some wine tasting, and this is the restaurant we had dinner in one evening. It was fabulous. The food was great, the service was exceptional and we had the greatest time. I really liked that the wine list had local selections as well.

We enjoyed a nice lunch here! Sure, since Wellington is such a small town, there's not much choice in restaurants but the locals love this place because the food is wholesome, service is friendly and the ambiance is quite comfortable. We are told this restaurant is very busy all year round, particularly in the summer. If you expected The East... More

East and Main is a favourite in the Wellington area. Appetizers, mains and desserts use local produce when possible, along with locally caught pickerel, raised chicken. The menu has good choices for enjoyable meals. It is a fun place to dine and a meeting place for an evening with friends. Service is excellent and attentive without being intrusive. Love this...

We were here for a romantic mini-moon dinner this weekend, during Countylicious. The hubbard squash and apple soup was delicious. The frites were tasty, but not a standout. We had the risotto as a main, and it was decent, but the roasted vegetables paired with it did not compliment the tastes, and the risotto lacked that dynamic "pop" of mushroom... More

This charming restaurant with thoughtfully prepared meals and excellent service had us coming back for a second evening during our 3-day stay in the County. With a great selection of local wines, our server was knowledgable and provided us with great choices. Mid-week October, the place was humming, and early reservations are a must. When the winemaker who made your... More
