    A delightful spot alongside the old Welland Canal in the shadow of the old Main St. Lift bridge. The perfect place for a long romantic meal. The food was outstanding, the service attentive, and the ambience impressive. This is not an inexpensive place to dine but overall experience makes it worthwhile. Highly recommended!

    Popped in for a late lunch. Sat inside instead of outside. Weather was so beautiful, but actually almost too hot to sit on patio so enjoyed sitting indoors. Service was great. Food was delicious as always. We enjoyed a coffee after lunch just sitting and chatting with no pressure or rush to finish up.

    The food was fantastic, I had the salmon with asparagus delicious! We had the Brussels sprout appetizer really “well” done. Only complaint were the tables out doors on the patio were quite w ably so dining outside was not enjoyable we moved indoors and it was lovely. Will be back for sure 😊

    We find that the menu is quite limited in selection. It used to be a little more expansive with more choices. The food was correct. The garlic bread was good. Soup good. Salmon was a little over cooked. Hamburger tasty. Servers were overworked. The noise level high.

    Really nice restaurant located in Welland Ontario right on the canal. I’ve been there several several times. The food is always consistent. Always good and care has been taken in preparing the food. Service has always been very good and very friendly and very efficient. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    The staff where ver friendly and attentive. We had all kinds of time to decide on our meals and to take a leisurely time to eat and chat. Very European. We requested indoor dining just because of the always present bees and mosquitoes in many outdoor venues. In hindsight it might have been fine to eat on the patio overlooking the Canal. The menu had changed from the winter menu (on the site I found). But my husband was more than happy with his filet. My grandson had the spicy Korean bowl and loved it. His partner had the salon with fried goat cheese and also loved it. I had the steak said. Not what I expected. It might have a had a bit more salad content but it was ok. I dud enjoy the escargot! The desserts were cheesecake, molten lava cake and the mango lemon gelato. All were fantastic. I would return but maybe for their fall menu. 👌
