Farm to Restaurant

The Restaurant

Towards the water’s edge is The Restaurant at Waupoos Estates. The gazebo-style building has panoramic views of Lake Ontario and is nestled among the vineyards. After starting as a humble outdoor restaurant, our eatery is now fully enclosed and features a state of the art kitchen and full bar area.

Our restaurant’s focus is Farm to Table—our estate has a fully operational farm where we raise proteins like cattle, pork, lamb, goat, rabbits, poultry and game birds. Our gardens are carefully planned annually and stagger planted to supply the restaurant with the freshest produce for as long as possible. We have several different garden plots to suit different types of vegetables, and herbs.
If we have an abundance of produce, our kitchen staff transforms it into the tastiest preserves. A full line of preserves and pickles are featured on the menu and available to take home and enjoy later.

At Waupoos Estates Winery, we are proud members of FeastON—Ontario culinary tourism. This not-for-profit connects foodies with restaurants dedicated to Farm to Table cuisine, showcasing the best of Ontario produce and proteins.

Philosophy

A Farm to Table philosophy is the guiding force of our restaurant. We take pride in harvesting our produce at its peak and raising our protein with care.
