The food was really terrific. The servings were surprisingly ample, so the value is great. The lunch soup plus meat pie was outstanding. The vinegar and spice "chips" before ordering were tangy and delightful. Beers were imaginative, including Scottish and local (Hamilton) Ontario choices. Service...More

After hearing positive things about this restaurant and food, unfortunately we found the food very disappointing. The trout was so salty and overcooked, it was inedible and the strip steak was also highly seasoned, which obviously detracted from the taste of the meat. The rolls...More

Great food. They really treat you like you're at a high class restaurant. Don't go here if you want to spend less than $30 a person. Good selection of wine! I had their trout. It was cooked perfectly, but a little too salty. Not kid...More

Forty years of combined experience in the hospitality industry has taught the husband and wife team of Chef Dan Megna and Laurie Lilliman much about food and wine. The driving force behind Twisted Lemon is that, "fine dining is great food and great service, and is an experience that all should enjoy".

And so began the concept of "redefine dining", only bringing in those pieces of the industry that they love into Twisted Lemon's positive philosophy.

Located in the picturesque villiage of Cayuga, Haldimand County, Ontario, Twisted Lemon is described as a "hidden gem", which now attracts a faithful following of 'flavour junkies' and experienced diners from far and wide.

Featuring a lively open-concept kitchen in a tasteful and eclectic ambiance, Chef Dan Megna's dishes are well thought out in their design. Careful consideration is put into each dish, intended to illuminate all of the senses and offer depth and balance in flavour and texture.

In addition to a core menu, Twisted Lemon offers seasonal and locally inspired cuisine, including exciting monthly features, house-baked breads and pastries, tasting menu's on Tuesday's and Wednesday's and a prix fixe menu every Thursday evening. Chef Dan Megna doesn't try to be like anyone else. Here you will find quality food and service that stands on its own merit.

Mission. Passion. Humour. Balance. There is a great story here....
