The bistro was quiet when we visited on a Wednesday evening but that did not dampen the very friendly and welcoming reception we received from our server. The menu offers an interesting selection of meals. I chose the Lobster Pot Pie which was delicious and beautifully presented on a wood platter.

Came back for some drinks on a Friday night, music was too loud for a DJ, we were informed it was only bar service after 10 when there were only two tables sitting.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Place was beautiful with a nice atmosphere. Was practically empty though. Got the Caesar salad with chicken and it was very small and way too salty.

I just had the best quinoa salad at Rockwater on the Patio. The patio was nice by the river. Great service and perfect flavours.
