Visited for a Sat evening meal. Waitress was friendly & efficient. Caesar salad very good with unusual presentation. Appetizer of bread with 3 dips nothing special. Pot roast served on mushy Yorkshire pudding. Dessert ok bread pudding. Prices too high for quality delivered.

Hi Elaine, We are sorry to hear you were disappointed. You must be referring to the original Dani's which has now been closed for 3 years. As the new owners, we had some decisions to make in changing how things were previously done and some...More

Thank you for taking the time to review. We do hope that you do join us again. Though we do believe our wines are priced competitively and fairly, might I suggest our delicious wine on tap for more wine for your buck. ~Dani

Lovely bistro located on wine route and across from the Performing Arts Centre. We carry a large variety of VQA wines, many by the glass and even on tap. Hard time deciding? We also offer wine by the flight. We also have beer and cider on tap. Delicious and fresh, join us for tapas, for lunch, dinner or dessert, you will not be disappointed. We also have a boxed lunch option.
