“Excellent dining experience!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Had dinner there with a friend yesterday evening. The decor of this small restaurant is beautiful and the service and the food is excellent. I had the Bifana sandwich with fries and my friend took the chicken breast. The portion were generous and the food was very tasty. I found that the slice of lemon in the water was a nice touch. The lemony mayonnaise served with the delicious piri-piri fries was also quite good. I will certainly come back and recommend this place to friends and family.

“nice find”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Imaginative and well-executed food in pleasant surroundings. A bar, but quiet enough to hold a conversation, even with the hockey playoffs on. Plates may seem small compared to oversized portions at many restaurants, but are sized well to have an appetizer and main for dinner. Gnocchi were beautifully browned in butter. Chicken confit in the pasta dish was terrific. Beet salad had a countable number of green leaves in it, but was otherwise delicious - pecans praline were excellent with a touch of cinnamon. Trout was browned to crisp, sprouted lentils a nice surprise.

“Fantastic new restaurant”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Party of six, service and food was out of this world. Best calamari in the Ottawa area. I hope they can maintain that level of quality, if they do they'll stay around for a while. Only thing I would ask is that they get more local beers.

“Good food on St-Joseph”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

New restaurant located in the busiest part of St. Joseph. The outdoor location doesn’t really stand out but the interior has been well renovated. Service is efficient and professional. Food was quite good with some really good tartar and some good clams. Steak was well cooked with good sides. Chicken pasta was good but nothing that you really couldn’t do at home. Prices are on the higher sides of things.
