Lovely little place with a delicious and local menu. A lot of the herbs and veggies come from either the owner's backyard or from local producers. A true French atmosphere! If you are lucky, Michel will step away from his busy kitchen if he gets the chance to come say hello. Make a reservation in advance if you want to... More

We were staying at a nearby B&B during a skiing trip and made a reservation at Chez Michel and we are very glad we did! Coming from Toronto, we really appreciated the low noise level (most fine dining establishments are very loud), the inviting atmosphere, the polished and well-coordinated service, and the exceptionally delicious food! We enjoyed meeting the chef... More

We'd been waiting for a while to try this much touted restaurant and that always makes me nervous in case it doesn't live up to the hype. No fear of disappointment here though - from the warm welcome and friendly servers, to the pleasant surroundings to the delicious food, it hit all the right notes. I tried the mussels and... More

We had lunch here and it was lovely. The food was very tasty, the presentation was very nice, and the service was impeccable. The owner of the restaurant was also very friendly. The energy of the place was very warm and inviting. We will definitely be back!

This unpretentious restaurant in the heart of Creemore offers genuine French cuisine at very reasonable prices. As we walked through the door I felt like we had been transported to Paris or Brussels. My wife and I both had the table d'hôte dinner at $40 and it was a tremendous value. I enjoyed a salad of fresh garden greens with... More

Always good quality and great service. The only negative note would be the Ceasar salad which was uninspired. Great bread, decent wines, friendly service.

Happened to be in creemore and very happily stumbled upon this quaint little French restaurant. So glad we decided to eat! The chef (Michel) greeted us and with a soil laden handful of recently harvested beets (from his vegetable garden behind the restaurant) got to work producing a beautiful meal. You know your in the hands of a hospitality professional... More

I have good experience from Hez Michel restaurant about twenty years ago, when it had business in an other city, close by. While we were living there, we were regular guests. In that time it was an authentic French restaurant in a "small town". Now is a different story. When walking in, you are overwhelmed by plethora of cheep artworks... More
