We think a great glass of wine is an important part of every meal, the “off cuts” of meat hold the flavour and local is always best. Our focus is on Canadian ingredients (although not exclusively, truffles and octopus are too good to pass up and don’t grow here) and we love to cook what we love to eat.
Our intimate dining room is an extension of who we are and we hope you find our rustic traditional style as comfortable as the food is delicious.
