Service was very slow even for a weekday lunch. Many of the things my table and I ordered did not come as described (missing ingredients and side sauces/dips) plus the food itself was very mediocre. Would not go back

We really enjoyed breakfast here. Nice view and a very nice server. She forgot my wife's deCaff and didn't charge us for any coffee. Good spot to relax.

This restaurant has old world charm and a quiet ambience. Hard to find that. Soup and Salad lunch is great value. Food is generally very good.

Went for lunch with s couple of coworkers and had the fish and chips. The portion and price were both great and the service was excellent. There is a great view of the harbour and the sleeping giant which makes for a great ambiance

Best way to find out is to call the restaurant directly at 807-345-5411. I would highly recommend making reservations for Easter.
