Was in the Barrie area and based on reviews went for dinner here. The place had a few large tables celebrating birthdays, etc. so this may have affected the service? The food was alright, but have nothing memorable. The ambiance I thought was nice. It is a nice place but I would try a few others before I return here.

This restaurant offers excellent service, amazing food and a lovely view of Kempenfelt Bay from its second storey location on Dunlop Street. Fresh ingredients coupled with an excellent chef and lovely ambiance of the patio or the dining room make for an enjoyable dinner out for every day or special occasions.

My wife and I dropped by without a reservation. The room was full but they found a way to get us a table with only a short wait at the bar (with a nice glass of wine, of course). This is the second time we have come to this restaurant on a whim and both times the service was impeccable... More

We went here as 3 couples on the strength of recent excellent reviews. The food was amazing and service top notch. Our table was at a window and was quite private. The veal risotto special was delicious as was the puttanesca. Prices reasonable. Certainly will return

This out of the way restaurant is nicely decorated, and while you are sitting at your table, the wonderful smells hint at what you will soon enjoy. I had looked at the menu online before my wife and I went there for dinner and had my mind set on the Lasagna. Mostly because a really good lasagna is a feast... More
