When I look online at the menu, I was intrigued, it looks local and interesting so I was quite excited to try something different.
We walked through the wooden front door and through the lobby that had a rustic wooden chalet look to it with a fireplace in the middle.
Through the bar area, we ventured to find the restaurant where we had made a booking, and was greeted by the host who took us to our table.
It was a small but attractive restaurant and we were seated by the window. Although it was 8.30 in the evening, the sun was still partially up and the snow and woods were a beautiful site from our seats.
It didn’t take long to decide what to have, the menu was basic but at the same time, each meal looked intricate and extremely appetizing.
I close the elk dish, a local delicacy that I knew I had to tick off my ‘Canadian bucket list’.
The server suggested medium rare, just the way I like my red meat to be cooked and ordered a glass of Meyer Pinot Noir from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
It had an elegant and fruity zing to it and complimented the elk and vegetables in the rosehip game reduction incredibly.
It was a nice night out of good food and a catch up and we ended the evening with desert.
I chose the sticky date pudding with the in house ice cream and my friend had the apple crumble.
Mine was deliscious and I made sure that no matter how full I was, I didn’t leave a single crumb on my plate. I even found room for a mouthful of the apple crumble to try.
