The restaurant has an intriguing menu. Food was delicious. Portions are adequate. Service was a bit too fast and we felt rushed. There was not enough time to really enjoy the meal.

The duck breast was so so good. And the sticky toffee pudding was deadly.

Get to this place right now!

Welland bowl! I am on a diet that restricts me from anything fun.. So I appreciate an option like this where the taste is great with simple ingredients. Very good, and will order again diet or not!

I had the pleasure of experiencing dinner in the outside igloos. Server was delightful, entrees were a little bland especially since we ordered the filet mignon, and the salmon was over cooked. Server did not come to check on us when we got our apps or entrees to see if we were enjoying it; I would of had to go inside to talk to her. It was a very special occasion, as a manger at a fine dining restaurant, a nice gesture is usually given but maybe that’s not something you do for your customers. I put a 25$ deposit down to make sure was able to enjoy the heated igloos. After I got home, noticed that the deposit was not taken off of the bill. Tried calling next day; no answer and wasn’t able to leave a voicemail. I would only come back for the igloo experience and apps.

Amazing atmosphere friendly service and excellent food for a great price! Everything is between 15$-30$
Special occasion or just a romantic dinner, recommend all the way! Beautiful views from the igloos, ask for seating there outside looking to the bridge and water. 5 star

One of the best places I’ve ever eaten. I don’t even write reviews when I try somewhere new and this is the kind of place that leaves a lasting impression. This is the kind of place you’ll be thinking to visit again as you take the last bite of your meal.

Thank you for a wonderful experience!

The food was good but we were disappointed with the limited menu
We were seated close to the kitchen and it was very loud.
Overall, it was good but we had originally booked outside and they should have had the bubbles ready as it is November

Taris has outdoor seating available in a covered tent for the winter months. There are large, movable heaters that they can rearrange to be close to your table. However, only half the table (party of 4) really could feel any warmth from them... and it was rather cold for the rest of our group (tent is still open to the elements on one side next to the building). The food was well done but for the price of our bill and amount of food it felt like we did not get a good value. A place I’m glad we tried once and could support a local business in the process.

We had beef tenderloin with mushroom sauce. It was tender and delicious and perfectly cooked. The Caesar salad was also very good. The service was great with just the right amount of attentiveness. We chose to eat inside although there were bubbles set up outside. We found the ambience inside so pleasant as the canal and lift bridge were visible just outside the window.

Great onion soup, great beef pot pie with root veggies...very filling....waiter was great, social distancing made easy with plexiglass partitions between the booths...sat inside as it was cold and rainy...Everything tasted fresh, nice decor, I had been there twice before, my friend was quite impressed and it was her first time. Waiter did not rush us, different times for sure....

As we had decided to sit on the patio and although we had warm clothes on, we had imagined that the heaters would have been on. Too bad as it was lunch time and you don't turn heaters on till night. When I called to ask if you had heaters the person on the phone said yes you did, but failed to say they don't turn them on a lunch.
So glad we had our boots and heavy socks on.

Otherwise the experience was great!

Food, value and service were outstanding. Four women celebrating a birthday so lots of talking and the server was friendly, patient (cuz we take forever to decide!) and prompt. The COVID precautions taken were exceptional and we all felt safe. The food was served piping hot and we will definitely be back.

Superb outdoor patio, heated in cooler weather, overlooking the old Welland Canal and the Main St. lift bridge, colourfully-lit at night.

We had ribs/roasted veg and Salmon - both very good.

Well worth a try!
