Great meal, services and a lemon ducrois (sp) dessert to die for. Small chalkboard resto with great atmosphere and people, squeezed us in on Friday with no reservation. Glad they did. Shared the shrimp and Brussels sprout appies, which were both out of this world....More

A delightful, small, gem on Main Street. The menu is limited, a tiny kitchen, but always imaginative and tasty. The service is friendly and good.

I think it's high time I write about this place, having been there more than a handful of times. It's an atmospheric heritage home with smaller tables seating 2-6 people, so make sure to call ahead, if you're lucky you can get a table near...More

We enjoyed a home cooked meal (beef shank and a pasta dish) with excellent desserts and an Ontario cabernet sauvignon. Friendly service. Rather dark little place, but OK.
