Modern European cuisine by Chefs Jonathan Gushue and Philippe De Montbrun. A cozy and casual space offering seasonally-inspired cuisine. Dine at the limited-spaced kitchen counter and watch the team create the magic. The dining room boasts a beautifully, historic brick wall with soft natural light. A thoughtfully-curated wine list can be enjoyed in the lounge space in the back.

Parking can be found behind the restaurant, off of Grey Road 4 behind the Home Hardware.

First time here after a recommendation. Service was EXCELLENT. Started with a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Food was good, but under seasoned. Had to request salt and lemon to give food more taste. This may have just been a preference though. Recommended for casual dining. 10/10 for Orillia, 7.5/10 for a larger city. Would go back!!!

Our Guests know that life is too short for the ordinary. With 40 beers on tap and over 60 in bottles, there is a beer for everyone. Our Chefs have taken as much time as the brewers to craft everything that goes onto each plate.

Our favourite place. Our rigatoni with chicken was delicious (to bad there wasn’t just a wee bit more pasta) and the French Dip on a Pretzel bun was also delicious.
