Wonderful authentic French cuisine family restaurant. Nestled in an enchanted-forest setting, old world building with large stone fireplace set the tone for an amazing romantic dinner, or family gatherings. The food is excellent, the personnel is warm and professional. Highly recommend!

We were taken there as guests of my wife's sister and her husband. It was a great choice due to location, food, and ambience. The restaurant is run by the family of the original owner. He is an experienced Chocolatier, who combined the restaurant business with the making of fine chocolates using quality Belgian chocolate. A late Saturday afternoon reservation... More

Went here for our anniversary meal & everything was very good. The only thing that was "wrong" was that only one person was very fluent in English that could really explain the menu to us. I really find it surprising that the young waitresses & serving girls wouldn't know English. If the there could be a menu & information packet... More

Rustic ambience very french, servers do speak some English and do help with the menu. Food is excellent some seasonal dishes and a seafood menu. Home made chocolates you can purchase as well. We will return, drove over 100 klms to enjoy the cuisine.

Food was quite good. Typical french cuisine. A bit pricey for the lack of uniqueness in the dishes. They also make their own chocolate which is a nice touch for a romantic dinner for two. It's nestled way out in the woods. Decor is beautiful. A place to visit for a special occasion as the environment is delightful if you... More
