Looks are deceiving. The bright yellow sign with flashing lights would lead you to believe this restaurant is more casual or even a pub. This is not so. This modern venue has Mediterranean flavour that will keep you coming back. They don't let their menu go stale! They change it up every few months to introduce new dishes and flavours, so what you see here, might not be on the menu anymore! 

We started off with Bread and Olives. The bread was so fresh and hot, we had to wait. We kept burning our fingers because it smelled so good, that we couldn't hold back!  



I went with the Beef Wellington. When people say 'it melts in your mouth,' they are not exaggerating. It was tender, moist and seasoned perfectly. They use Wellington County beef and it is fantastic. One of my friends had the Market Fish with Pasta. Nothing but bones were left on his plate! At the time, there were mostly seafood entrees on the menu and a few of my friends were not really fish eaters. When the expressed this to our server, the chef had no problem preparing a pasta dish for them! Amazing



After a delicious appetizer AND entrée, how could I pass up dessert? I have two words for you: Chocolate Mousse. You NEED this in your life. When I have a chocolate craving, THIS is what I think about. It was light and a chocoholic dream. Most of my friends went with the Crème Brulee with Almost Shortbread. They loved it so much, no one wanted to let me try. 





Everything about this restaurant is amazing. The food to the service to the atmosphere, this is something you need to try. It won't be your last visit!
