Excellent food. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. We sat out on the front balcony and watched the sun go down while having appetizers. Then moved inside for the main course - special was surf (shrimp and scallops) and turf . Delicious!

The old house that the business operates out of provides a nice setting to sit and enjoy a coffee or tea, with a snack. The service is hit and miss, depending on who is working.

We stopped here for a coffee break. The pub is an old house which made it feel cozy. They have a lunch and dinner menu as well. Great service.

Had a fantastic New Year's dinner at the Elk and Finch. The attention to detail with the menus , service and atmosphere were second to none and truly made the evening special. We always enjoy the quality of the food and service but New Years was over the top.

Wow.....what a wonderful experience ! These guys have IT figured out. Second time for dinner this season. We loved all of our mains and in house smoked salmon app was incredible. Desert and house blend coffee was great as well. We will be back soon.

We have had lunch here numerous times through the years. The food is always good - it seems made from scratch and the desserts are yummy. However, they really need to improve their service. Today we got our menus promptly but waited too long while the young man & woman serving had a grand old chat behind the counter. Neither... More

Pretty old home converted to a bistro. Usually good food, though service tends to be slow. A favourite of ours is the whitefish salad when it is offered, though, the last time they forgot to put dressing on our salads. They also brought another of our group their starter and main together when it was specifically asked to have the... More

The food is excellent, the wine list is very good and the desserts are to die for. Great coffee too. Food can take awhile when it is busy but everything is prepared fresh by an actual chef. I recommend the pastas, the steak is amazing and great value, the whitefish, the roast chicken. I think this place is the best... More
