The food here was average+, and the ambiance just OK. We probably will not return. Service was very slow, even though there were very few customers.

Amazing food, great quality--also great vegetarian options-- with a wonderful wine list with many local options. Was reasonably quiet as we arrived for a later dinner, so that was lovely. Service was prompt, and attentive. Very well trained. Well worth it. Highly enjoyed our time...More

The tired traveler might expect a "meal-catch-on-the-move" restaurant in a decent hotel to cater to a "captive" audience with "OK" food. Not so here. I ordered the burger which was very tasty indeed, coming with good fixings. Our companions were also pleased with their fish...More

I don't think they have - we were there a few weeks ago and it was hot - no outdoor eating area was offered to us - I am pretty certain they don't. We both had a lovely meal - sit at the window and enjoy.

No, I am sorry we do not currently have a senior discount. However we do offer great deals through the “GetintheLoop” App.

It's one block away. The Thompson Hotel is on the 600 block of Victoria Street and the restaurant is on the 500 block. Turn right when you leave the front door of the Hotel.
