Nice setting, very attentive service, most items were tasty. Salads are very good and desserts are excellent. Fish and chips a bit greasy but made in house and salmon had an overpowering glaze but sides are well prepared. Kemptville is very fortunate to have this spot. We will be back and recommend it to others.

I have visited this location restaurant on many occasions and it continues to amaze me. The daily food specials, as well as the menu choices, are superb and very good tasting. You can enjoy your meal inside the building or sit outside (weather permitting) on the patio adjacent to the Kemptville River. The Manager and staff are excellent and very... More

We had an amazing meal - the Potato and Bacon soup was amazing. Fish and chips done perfectly - not greasy or heavy. This was a great meal in a lovely bistro atmosphere. Will be coming again!!!

I recently had the restaurant prepare a meal for a group at the hospital and the chef came in on her day off to prepare a delicious meal and deliver it. Would use them again anytime and look toward to dropping by for a meal on the patio this spring.

Went here with my boyfriend over the weekend. It was not busy, but we had to wait a while between stages of our meal (ie to take our order, clear plates, ask for bill), so the dinner took longer than expected. The food was excellent, and I love the atmosphere. They make a really good steak, so I love ordering... More

The food was very good, we called for takeout and it was ready within 15 minutes which was great! Located right next to the Kemtpville Suites, which was very convient for us. Also, service was very good. The only downside was the price. It was extremely over priced for what we had.

Been here many times with friends. Menu reflects seasonal celebrations and has a reliable tasty assortment of regular dishes. They have home made potato chips that greet you when you sit down and these get hoovered up in no time, followed by more. Quiche is always good, but we often have their specials are they excellent. When we have visitors... More

Usually pick this spot for special occasions with a group of people. Food is great. Outside eating by the water is very pretty. Menu is pretty good and we love their corn bread :)

Went there for dinner on a weekday and it wasn't very busy but service was slow. I had the shrimp alfredo but the shrimp weren't even shelled, had to do it myself. Disappointing for the price but nice patio by the river.
