This is well worth a stop on your travels on the Crowsnest Highway as you pass through Creston. Food is very well prepared and the ambience on the patio is just right. I had gazpacho soup, a lam gyro, and lemon-lavender cheesecake.

We had an excellent meal on the patio. The service was friendly and the bubbles on the table for the kids was fun. A really good value as well. I would recommend and come again.

This the second time we have stopped and both tomes the food has been amazing. It is always fresh and light. The staff is very friendly and service very good. The fish and chips are incredible and a must try with curry.

The food was amazing! Good portion size, great prices, delicious food. We considered disguising ourselves and going right back in, but we were too full! Amazing dining experience!

This is a simple little restaurant with great food and lots of variety. They have a outdoor patio that is delightful on a warm day.

As we walked in we were welcomed to a warm natured restaurant. The staff greeted us nicely, brought us to our table and started us with some glasses of water. After ordering we waited about 20 minutes for our food. We got the salad of the day. It was all fresh local ingredients; the spinach, beets and tomatoes topped with... More

Great place, casual atmosphere with great service and amazing food! Rack of Lamb was to die for, as was the dessert (Cheesecake). YUM! Hope to return!

I dropped in on a Monday for lunch. It wasn't that busy and the waitress was very pleasant. I had the burger which was nice - whole wheat bun, melted cheese. I got the fries but recommend the salad instead - the side salads were large and looked fresh. Will be back.

Stopped by for a late dinner and enjoyed the hidden patio. Had excellent salads, a delicious burger, but the mussels didn't rate quite so high; however the server was kind enough to delete the charge for them. Ambiance, including good wine, great music selections and excellent service rounded out our excellent evening out. We will definitely be back.
