Wonderful meal - lamb with really nice balance and variety of vegetables. Our server was excellent. Very sad to hear the chefs have sold out, good luck to the new owners - a difficult act to follow!

We had a lovely meal here recently while we were in town for their world famous music festival Kathaumixw. The wait staff were very friendly and busy. I think this restaurant was the busiest restaurant because of the food. Great mussels and lamb dishes.

Varied menu with excellent meal as a result. Had pasta dishes one night then returned two evenings later for lamb. Waitresses very friendly, efficient, and helpful. We had two most enjoyable evenings there and would highly recommend this restaurant to others.

From the puff pastry pear and gorgonzola tart to the profiteroles, everything was delicious. Service was excellent, setting is pleasant. On a summer evening the patio would be delightful.
