I’ve been curious about the interior for a few years, but haven’t visited as we live over an hour away. On a whim, I pulled over on the road through town, and I was kind of bowled over. It’s so neat! A friend warned that it would be an out of budget experience, but I found it to be extremely fairly priced. I was actually surprised it wasn’t more! I had lobster bisque that was very flavorful, and a generous Caesar salad with fresh crispy croutons, crispy cold romaine lettuce, and zingy Caesar dressing that was clearly housemade. My daughter had a fresh salad and a kids’ meal size spaghetti. We loved it. To top it off, the owners were so kind. They made us feel so special, seating us at a special table, scooting in chairs, hanging coats, taking the time to speak to us, and even bringing us a free pavlova for dessert — trust me on this, get it if you go! (Baked meringue with whipped cream, fresh berries and shaved dark chocolate! Yum!). All in all, a do-again restauran...

What an awesome experience. The spray paint ceiling is astounding when you look at the scale. The host, the artist's father, is passionate and very warm hearted. We felt like royalty. We purchased the 4 course meal, and upgraded to the beef medallions and the flaming chocolate dessert. The starters had outstanding flavor. We we're stuffed by the end. Check out the art in the bathroom hallway, and the articles on the wall. Also, you can get a pic from the stairs which is memorable. Great experience and like the supper clubs from the past. The waiting staff was spectacular, formal yet friendly. This is a must visit for Waterloo! The food is not "foodie" and hip, but rather classical and charming the way a nice meal should be.

The owner is a fantastic guy! Waitresses are all pleasant and attentive. Food is phenomenal, great taste and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is relaxed and the paintings on the walls are beautiful to gaze upon. Such a great place to dine in, especially for special occasions.
