A gem in a small town. Cosy atmosphere and quiet, the perfect place for date night. The service was excellent. The food was delicious and reasonably priced.

Phoned to ask if they offer gluten and dairy free options for dinners. The owner was amazing and said he could make pretty much anything on the menu to accommodate my dietary restrictions. Ended up with a beautiful chicken pasta dish that was soooo delicious!...It was the best gluten/dairy free meal I've eaten since being diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago. What a great little place to eat! My son got the chicken cordon bleu and said it was amazing! Have eaten here before and never disappointed. Really impressed with their ability to go above and beyond. I highly recommend eating and supporting here at this great local restaurant!More

My group of nine were able to have the quiet closed off room so that we could have a meeting as well as lunch. ( and follow covid requirements seating every other chair around the table). We were very impressed by the management’s willingness to...accommodate us( stayed open for us until 3.00 instead of the usual lunchtime 2.00 closing time). The food was good, prices reasonable. We were unanimous in declaring that we hope to return.More

The best. Excellent food and staff. Don't fail to try this experience. I lived in Morinville for 6 yrs before I discovered this hidden gem. We did the Sunday brunch. I haven't eaten during the week but assume it would be excellent based on the...brunch.More

Travelling with my daughter and we were looking for lunch. This little restaurant looked interesting and we gave it a try. We found nice surroundings and very pleasant staff. there was a varied menu and as it was a Sunday there was also the choice...of a Brunch buffet. We chose off the menu and were very impressed with the cooking and the presentation. The waitress was attentive and helpful. Not the fastest service if you are in a hurry but the food more than made up for that. definitely a place I will go back to.More

We were out for a drive on a sunny Sunday and wanted something to eat. We were surprised by finding an authentic European restaurant in a little Alberta town. The staff were friendly and helpful and the menu extensive. We ordered the daily special and...we were impressed by the presentation and the tasty food. It was so refreshing to find something other than the diner or fast food restaurants we expected. Well worth another visit.More

The food was delicious, but the service was sooooooo slow. The restaurant wasn't even half full when we went, but we were there half an hour before we even got our drinks (I'd only ordered a pop, nothing complex). Also, unfortunately both myself and my...husband seem to have gotten food poisoning after eating here :( I imagine it was just an off night for things. I was expecting a lot more based on the reviews.More

We were wonderfully surprised as we entered this “hidden” treasure house of wonderful cuisine with such friendly welcome by the restaurant manager Jani. It was indeed a bonus to us as we thought we were just having a simple celebration of our Wedding Anniversary. As...it turned out, the private room we reserved was prepared for us so beautifully. Everyone enjoyed even the children liked the food. With the welcoming ambiance of the place it was indeed a home away from home. We shall definitely plan a trip to this place again.More

We had to make an unexpected stop in Morinville and had an hour to kill while our tire was being fixed. We were welcomed by the loveliest person, so gracious and caring, she made us feel like home. They had a couple of lunch specials...on offer, and while this is basically an Italian restaurant, the beef sandwich with soup was what sounded best on such a hot day. Both were excellent! The bread they used for the sandwich was light and crusty, like it had just come out of the oven, so tasty! The beef was generous and delicious, and with the extra cheese and mushrooms, what a wonderful meal it was. The carrot and ginger soup sounded great, and boy was it wonderful, you could taste all the ingredients, it had just the right amount of heat. The decor is classic Italian, very clean, charming and cozy. Later, back at the tire shop the staff said that the steaks at this Bistro are out of this world good and I wouldn't doubt that at all. If you're cruising up or down Highway 2 north of Edmonton, put on the breaks and stop here for food. It's convenient, just a one kilometres from the highway, right across from the gorgeous cathedral! We'd eat here again any day!More

My husband and I were driving through and thought we would try this restaurant for lunch. We ordered the fish wrap with fries and the lunch special with the soup of the day. The lunch special was a roast beef sandwich and the soup of...the day was mushroom. Our food came and they had the wrong sides on the plates and the mushroom soup of the day looked like maybe carrot? The fish wrap had a nice white fish with essentially caesar salad in a tortilla shell that was warmed up and the fries were nice and hot. It came very nicely presented with drizzle accents on the plate. I was not expecting this for lunch in a restaurant in Morinville. The roast beef sandwich came with hot fried onions, mushrooms and melted cheese. It was very tasty. My husband did enjoy the soup even though it was not what the server said. Service was a bit slow at times but food was good. Would eat here again if in the area.More
