Ravine Vineyard Restaurant is a Niagara Wine Country gift, wrapped in a bow. With ever-growing popularity, Ravine has carved out an identity for being unpretentious, approachable and lovely. Boasting a farm-to-table philosophy, with pigs raised around the corner, Chef Paul Harber’s menu is locally inspired French country-bistro.
The authentic wood fired oven overlooking the northern vineyards roasts vegetables grown in Ravine’s garden. Charcuterie boards also vie for attention. Light lunches include; quiche and juicy PEI mussels with tarragon and mushroom, served with fresh, crusty bread and salty butter. Dinner is heartier fare; lamb shank, or crispy duck with cauliflower puree. The Lemon tart for dessert, with blueberry coulis, is light, tart and heavenly. First time visitors swoon over the gorgeousness of their surroundings, while regulars chase soccer balls with their kids on the lawn.
