Was referred to this restaurant by service staff at other places. They do a set menu each day, out in the back clearing (due to covid, I believe). Definitely isolated, so you have to use a GPS. Once you are there, they serve very good food. That day, the menu was asian inspired and well prepared. My only recommendation is that they get harder plastic cutlery so that there is less chance of breaking it during the meal

We have picked up dinner here several times during Covid19. The dinner we picked up last night was the best yet. Absolutely delicious and fresh. Pork schnitzel, corn pancake, cheese perogies, fresh peas and cucumber salad. And strudel for dessert. Huge portions. Can’t recommend this little gem enough. Local is best.

Flying Chestnut Kitchen, exactly the gem you want to find in the country. Near Flesherton in the hamlet of Eugenia, the former Post Office now houses a restaurant. A creative, well curated, short menu. Online you’ll find a sample menu only as menu shifts according to availability and inspiration.

After being served a tiny delicious and beautiful bite of pork amuse bouche we started with prawn appetizer, and the had the Arctic Char and the Fried Chicken.

The skin of the Char was expertly crisped, served atop small roasted Brussels sprouts and pillowy gnocchi in an almond brown butter.

The Karala Fried chicken batter had a distinct warm Indian spice blend that would’ve come alive with a bit more salt, or been salted after coming out of fryer. Fried food calls for salt.

Finished with perfectly delicious blueberry cheesecake and excellent coffee.

Friendly service, fabulous playlist, this is a charming country find.

A very pleasant surprise a nice home converted into a lovely restaurant staff was very friendly and we were greeted by James who we had not seen in years and he remembered us. Three of us had the special strip loin it was cooked perfectly for each of us, I would highly recommend but you do need reservations and it is cash only
