I was staying at the Best Western Mariposa. My stay included FREE breakfast for the week. The breakfast was excellent! I've at at restaurants where the scrambled eggs were terrible due to the volume of eggs cooked at one time, but these were good. The service was good and the waitresses were friendly. My only complaint. I found the glass... More

We have eaten here four times and have had professional service and very good food on each occasion. The menu has two levels which is a good idea. People who are staying at the hotel can get a reasonably priced dinner but there is also a more adventurous menu for people who are in the mood for it. The second... More

We were at a function at the Best Western Hotel, where this restaurant is located and needed a quick meal. We didn't expect the great food we got. A great surprise for a hotel restaurant. Mussels and gnocchi were excellent. We will make a point to stop here next time we are in Orillia.

We continue to enjoy this restaurant every time we come to Orillia for a wonderful dining experience. The Chef has an incredible palette, and the food just "POPS" when you eat it, and the balance of flavours are simply perfect. The special menu offered this week was "A Taste of Country". I had the Bam Bam Thai Shrimp starter, followed... More

This restaurant is located at a Best Western, so as One would expect, you get hotel food. Our meal was not flavourful and was overpriced. The service, however, was good. They had several choices on the menu, a variety of wine to choose, and daily specials.

Our first visit here. Warmly greeted and promptly seated by Norma Jean and the wait staff. The décor is fresh and the ambiance is well lit and nicely open. Tables are generously spaced for comfort and privacy. Our server was Kristin and she was a delight. Knew just when to be there to anticipate our needs. Relaxed and not rushed... More
