Atmosphere great, cosy. Staff friendly, efficient, unobtrusive. Food interesting, a nice balance. When you go, don't mistake the cafe for the restaurant as we did at first.

Had fish and chips. Batter should have been more crisp, but the Halibut Fish was perfectly cooked and delicious. Home made tartar sauce. Interesting coleslaw without much flavor. Choice of chips from home cut to coated. The Cavendish Farms coated fries were crisp and tasty. Several beers to choose from, some of which were local. My wife had the chowder.... More

Arrived about 6pm on a Saturday night with friends. We were taken to the dinning room hidden in the back. Great Mediterranean atmosphere with a warm fireplace in the center of the room. Service and the food was excellent. We were the only ones there and it was for quiet conversation. Most definitely will return soon.

The waitress told me that this restaurant has been open for 5 years, but I had not heard of it until today. It is hidden off the main street in New Minas, so probably often overlooked. My wife and I took my parents there for supper this evening (a Thursday). We were the only customers there for an early evening... More

This restaurant has become our favourite. The food is excellent and the waiters (Judy today) are friendly and knowledgeable. Try a siphon coffee for a treat...maybe with a chocolate creme brule!
