Been many times over the years and the Cascata Bistro does not disappoint. Service is friendly, food is fresh and quite different, atmosphere is fine and the patio is always a nice place to sit. I'd recommend reservations. It's a great place for a couple...More

Lovely little restaurant. Not an extensive menu but the food was very good. I would recommend reservations! They fit us in at a small table by the bar because we did not have reservations. I thought the prices were high....$18.00 for a burger.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing! The food is incredibly flavourful and well presented. It's thoughtful, seasonal and made with passion! The service is perfect!! Friendly, excellent timing, and reasonably priced. We went in the winter, but it's nearly patio season and I can't wait...More
