Description: Rustic charm in the heart of Wakefield Village. We are a small 26 seat restaurant, with an outdoor patio that seats another 20. Our restaurant serves upscale comfort food, great wines and local brews. All while dining with views of the Gatineau River and hills.

After a Saturday hike in the Gatineau Hills we drove another 30min to see the Wakefield Covered Bridge set against the fall colours. However, the highlight of our day was eating dinner here. Each of us couldn't help remarking how difficult it was to choose from such a creative menu. We felt honoured that the chef would share such marvelous food with us... oh the sauces! This is seriously delicious food served by very hospitable folks.So sad that we live so far away in BC and can't visit again anytime soon.

Charming with beautiful river view from old home. We had the Pickerel and the Braised Beef- both very tasty. Desert was classic Creme Brûlée.

A jewel of a find, world class food in the little town of Wakefield!
A small menu with a focus on quality, unique combinations of flavours and great presentation. We liked it so much we took our friends back the following weekend.

The Service was prompt, friendly, attentive and bubbly. Definitely added to out top favourites in Ottawa/Gatineau.

Thank you!

We recently celebrated a 60th wedding anniversary. I've been several times previously and have never been disappointed with the food but this was our first group experience. Our group of over 20 people fit neatly into one room comfortably giving us a nice casual environment without disturbing other guests (we think).

The atmosphere, food, and service were fantastic. Drinks were offered immediately as guests arrived, the waitress(es) were friendly, and the food was delivered quickly. Since we ranged over three generations, some with short attention spans, so this was appreciated.

We'd pre-selected a menu for the group, including short ribs, halibut, and a vegetarian option. All were well received - I had the halibut, which was perfectly done; the short ribs are always fall-off-the-bone perfection. Desserts included a tart (labeled a butter tart but mostly an apple/walnut tart) and chocolate ganache, which was the most popular.

Couldn't ask for a better place for a family celebration.
