This was a wonderful restaurant to visit on a sunny June day. We chose to eat on the verandah overlooking the Falls. We had a table right at the edge where we had a great view. Most of the verandah is covered with an awning but the tables at the railing are in the open. Luckily we chose 3pm to eat and the sun was bright when we started our meal but not overly so. By the end we were afraid that the storm clouds that had moved in were going to subject us to a downpour but luckily it didn’t happen until much later.
I had the Romaine Salad with creamy dressing. It was a large salad with pecans, black olives, tomatoes, waffle carrots and mushrooms as well as the romaine. Jason had the Salad with warm goat cheese served on a crouton with grape seed oil. Jen had a Caesar salad which had the unusual addition of capers and Al had sirloin steak and steak fries with a small side salad. Everything was just delicious. The presentations were very nicely done and service was friendly and attentive.
Jason and I tried a local beer "La fin du Monde" which has 9% alcohol and is a cloudy golden color. It was very good, so good in fact that Jason bought some to take home. I have to admit it had quite a punch for beer.
For dessert we shared two items, Bavarian white chocolate cake and coconut cheesecake. The chocolate cake had truffle pieces and was covered with an ivory ganache and had strawberry flavored ginger. The cheesecake was not at all like New York style, it had a cake texture with a cheese taste, and it was served with peppered raspberry coulis. They were both delicious and beautifully plated.
Add the breathtaking view of the Falls to the excellent food and you have a winning combination. The food was not over priced, as is so often the case in locations like this. The four of us ate for $68 Canadian.
