Ate here in December and January and had an outstanding experience both times.

The food is fantastic & the service top notch and friendly. We had our 5 year old with us on the second visit & they were very accommodating despite not having a kids menu (he loved their meatballs).

My favourite south lake restaurant.

Had the tuna for an appetizer and it was delicious. Service was good. Had the pork medallions for dinner and they were good. Dining room is small and intimate and overall our experience was good.

A nice place for a quiet dinner out. The escargot were very tasty. An excellent spinach salad — the best in town.

My husband and I dined here one quiet Saturday in October and had a great experience. We started in the bar with drinks, then were seated when we asked (early). We had a delicious appetizer before dinner that involved cream cheese, andoulle sausage, and a sweet sauce. For dinner I chose the charred sirloin with the cognac peppercorn sauce. It came with sauteed vegies and everything was fabulous! My husband had the hangar steak with chimichurri sauce on the side and he enjoyed it very much. We were too full for dessert, but they sounded wonderful. We will stop by again next trip!

Kenipela, thank you for choosing our place to have a quiet meal, and I'm thrilled you were so pleased with everything. It sounds like the sirloin was a big hit with you, and I'm glad that was the case. I can't wait to welcome you back the next time you're in town.

Thanks,
Tim

Superb spot for a quiet dinner. My husband's Charred Aged Top Sirloin was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented; my Hawaiian Style Crab Cakes were perfect and again, perfectly presented. We shared a toffee ice cream cake for dessert. There are only eight tables, so reservations are probably required in high season. It's about three blocks off the main drag on Ski Run Boulevard, easy to find. We look forward to our next visit!
