Wow.....what a wonderful experience ! These guys have IT figured out. Second time for dinner this season. We loved all of our mains and in house smoked salmon app was incredible. Desert and house blend coffee was great as well. We will be back soon.

We have had lunch here numerous times through the years. The food is always good - it seems made from scratch and the desserts are yummy. However, they really need to improve their service. Today we got our menus promptly but waited too long while the young man & woman serving had a grand old chat behind the counter. Neither... More

Mussels in the zesty sauce are one of my favorites as are the soups and salads.. everything I have tried here has been fantastic! don't forget to save room for a delicious... More

So, you walk into this adorable coffee bar/pub and feel like you're on top of the world; you think you've found a gem to behold! ... I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but that isn't the case. Going into this fine establishment in the mornings for a wonderful muffin and beautifully brewed coffee is absolute perfection; going to dinner, is... More

Pretty old home converted to a bistro. Usually good food, though service tends to be slow. A favourite of ours is the whitefish salad when it is offered, though, the last time they forgot to put dressing on our salads. They also brought another of our group their starter and main together when it was specifically asked to have the... More

The food is excellent, the wine list is very good and the desserts are to die for. Great coffee too. Food can take awhile when it is busy but everything is prepared fresh by an actual chef. I recommend the pastas, the steak is amazing and great value, the whitefish, the roast chicken. I think this place is the best... More

Elk & Finch has great coffee cappuccinos and iced lattes. I really enjoyed the delicious whitefish salad and I've returned twice since.

I always frequent the Elk and Finch when I'm in Southampton. The food is excellent and the service friendly. Lots of choice. My friends both had pasta with seafood and I had the spaghetti bolangnaise. Healthy portions; lots of seafood and the pasta was perfect. The chocolate cake is to die for. You can't go to Southampton and not go... More

I've been visiting Southampton since I was a child. A friend of our family always goes to The Elk & Finch, but I had never been. My husband and I were in Southampton for the Victoria Day long weekend and stopped in for some sweets. I am a butter tart fanatic and was surprised to see how many different tarts... More
