We were so happy we chose this restaurant for dinner! The staff and our server were so friendly and made us feel at home! The view of the water was so beautiful. We loved our food!! Had the grilled chicken tacos with a mojitos! Wish we could bring this restaurant home with us! We will definitely return!

Fantastic, outstanding, a gem in muskoka, seems like it was transplanted from downtown Toronto with the high skills, perfect executions, and creative dishes

Beautiful outdoor space but was marred by the initial service. Even though we had a reservation we were told we’d have to wait another half an hour for the table to clear and they basically said that they couldn’t guarantee when the table would be free. Another group came along and they heard and said their reservation of 6 decreased to four and that was the only reason we got a seat. Hopefully they figure out a system where they can uphold their reservations.

When we arrived for our reservation, we were told that we wouldn’t be seated for 30 minutes.
Had a martini that was warm and very salty. Apps were delivered to the wrong people, but Tuna Poke was very good. When main arrived, I had no cutlery. We waited for 10 min before I got up to find some. Now that I could eat, the food was cold. Halfway through my cold dinner, the mosquitos came out in droves. Rushed through the rest of meal, paid and left.
Our server only had one other table next to us.

I had made a prior request for a waterside table on the patio for a special occasion and they delivered, even turning others away until we arrived! Excellent service, friendly and tasty food. It was a great evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Beautiful spot, excellent service. I had the Tuna Poke-amazingly fresh. My daughter had the Pad Thai-it was excellent as well. Her friend ordered the smoke ribs-falling off the bone good! Highly recommend this lovely place.
PS -best Dirty Martini evvvvver!

Service from server and maître de was great. Very attentive and helpful. My husband ordered the chicken and mushroom pasta with truffle cream. Yummy - rich, but not too rich. I had the grilled trout on lentils. Excellent flavour.

Three people had the chicken mushroom pasta and absolutely loved it, I had the Pasta Bolognese and it was incredible! Cant wait to go back for more. The wintertime menu is minimized but still really great!

Our server was fantastic. I believe his name was Andrew. The trout special, the chili and the chicken pasta dish were ordered and each of us thought the food had great flavour, served warm and was just the right size portions. My salad could have used a bit more dressing but that is being picky. We definitely will return and recommend your place for sure. Thanks for a great meal. The Parson Family

Small portions and sandwiches have very little filling ... mostly bread.

Salmon dinner excellent, Calamari very good, salads good

Overall, the locals think the ambiance is really nice. Food portions small and very good but for the price they could be better.

Perhaps the winter menu might better suit the local traffic with more hearty meals.

Loved the outdoor patio location with outdoor heaters and blankets in September. Waiter was charming. Food was very good. Menu selection is not huge but we found something to suit everyone in our group of 4. Prices were reasonable. Would definitely stop by again if we were in the area.

The ambience of the restaurant was disappointing. It seemed very “blah” and there was no dinner music of any sorts. It lacked appeal for sure. Otherwise, the food and service was great.

This is a real gem in Muskoka. They have 3 different seating areas (indoor, covered patio and uncovered patio) which all overlook the locks at Port Carling. You can arrive by car or boat and then go for a nice walk through the park along the lake after. The food is seasonal and nicely presented, good portions, rich flavour and the staff are passionate and happy to help. I am a salt lover, and I didn't even think to request the salt as the flavours in the food was enough to satisfy me! Our fabluous waiter even brought me a blanket as it started to rain and I wanted to sit on the covered patio and watch the storm while we ate. Will be back!

Very friendly staff and a pleasant location overlooking the locks in Port Carling. We shared the falafel and hummus which were very good except the pita was dry and there was not enough. My wife had the tuna poke - which was quite good - fresh and tasty. I had the sausage with rapini - the pasta was under-cooked and the sausage was incredibly salty. We would go back based on the service and to try some of the other menu items - the trout looked amazing; however, they were sold out.
