One of our favourite places to dine. Run by a couple who happen to both be terrific chefs – Klaus and Janet – with Christine as superb front of house partner, this is always a delight. It's small, intimate, and lovely. The food is terrific, from top to bottom of the menu. Choosing is hard. Eating well is easy.

A small, eccentric restaurant owned and operated by delightfully eccentric people. Superb food every time, reasonable prices, good service. The best this charming small town has to offer.

We enjoyed a lunch here and were assured modifications could be made to make the dishes gluten free. I enjoyed Salmon and warm potato salad with quail eggs and pickles, my partner a shrimp chowder and grilled cheese sandwich with ham. Wonderful presentation. A colourful 2 scoop mango and cranberry gelato finished off the meal. Would return here in a... More

We saw this place advertised in a local paper and decided to visit for lunch on our way back to Toronto. We were delighted with our meal. We shared a starter and each had a meal. I had the liver dish and my husband had the New Zealand lamb chops - we were each delighted. They were each served with... More

This is a fascinating little place on the main route into downtown New Hamburg. A fascinating menu with some creative choices ranging from appetizers such as snails in red wine (would prefer white wine as red wine over powers the snail flavor), butter seared sea scallops (real scallops and not re-constituted Manta). Dinner Entrees are appealing although we chose a... More

There's something about eating in a refitted old house with its dark wooden floors and disbursed dining areas that makes one feel special. Here the food and the service more than match that first impression. Our server, Christine, rattled off the day's appetizers and mains with aplomb, and brought the local beer and my drink with dispatch. My scallops were... More
