Went here today for the first time for Mother’s Day Brunch. The food did not come out altogether which was disappointing & honestly it wasn’t that great. When the food did come out some of it was cold. Service was friendly yet quite slow, &...More

Ate here a few times while staying in Ancaster. Service is friendly and efficient without being overbearing. The food is good Italian-style. I mainly had pizza, my wife the soup-of-the-day or a salad, and my daugher one of the pasta dishes. Good selection of wines...More

We were greated by friendly employees. Tried their special mint-flavoured cocktail to begin our meal and it was amazingly flavoured. We had a nicely-spiced soup, thoughtfully put together house salad, and a salmon-rice dish (a little thin on vegetables) for our meals.

The food is delicious everytime! The lasagne is the best, the beet salad different but delicious. The scallops fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Great live music too on Thursdays and Fridays.

Reservations are a must. Do not expect to drop in and be seated without a reservation (I've tried, without success). Have eaten here twice. Spaghetti and Meatballs, Seafood Pasta, Pizza, all very good. Staff was unfailingly friendly, prompt and attentive. Wine prices are very affordable...More

not much to say with this eatery. Menu is unoriginal and uninspiring. The only reason we ate here was because we had a gift certificate. Presentation of food was poor and unappetizing. Food is just average. This place looks and feels like the 1990's including...More

Never stayed there but from the info on the web both are great hotels but I think the Palace is superior. It then comes down to the cost.
