    Phenomenal, lovely farm to table experience. Every bite was delicious and we are so happy to have found this little gem of a spot just outside of the Ottawa downtown area.

    We introduced guests to our favourite restaurant and they went home happy!. Excellent steak frites, prepared exactly as prescribed. Generous servings of fresh salad and soup to start, with creme brule to finish. Never disappointed!

    This was an outstanding lunch! It is definitely one of my top 3 restaurants in Ottawa and I had not gone in years but after yesterday, will definitely be going more! We went to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary! The lunch menu special was fantastic and the mousse dessert, we could just not get enough. A lot of care is put into the ingredients used and marrying them together for the perfect taste and texture - overall, 10/10 recommend this place. Great lunch ambience too - not too quiet and not too loud and the music is fantastic as well. Will definitely be back!

    Went with friends for the first time in early June 2024. Food was wonderful, although one person at our table said their main entré was over-salted. Everything else was delicious. Lovely wine list as well. We will be back!
