Culinary Excellence

The Restaurant at Rawley is known for the best dining experience in the region. Executive Chef, Marcel Tallifer, orchestrates a symphony of flavours from locally-sourced produce to tempt even the most sophisticated palate. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in our Lighthouse 45 Restaurant & piano bar, or on our outdoor patio by the water. Reservations are recommended.

We offer a variety of dining settings with unmatched views of the Trent Severn waterway. Watch the sunset and experience culinary excellence in our beautifully decorated Lighthouse 45 Restaurant. On the weekends, our piano bar is the place to join friends for signature cocktails, craft beer or a glass of wine and unwind to the best songs of past decades. For a more casual atmosphere our outdoor, dockside patio is perfect for enjoying gourmet burger while watching a parade of passing yachts.

Chef Marcel Taillefer

Chef Marcel Taillefer started his culinary career at the age of 12. His career spans multiple Executive Chef positions as well as the successful ownership and operation of restaurants in Canada as well as Bermuda. He studied at George Brown College in Toronto and is a Certified Red Seal Chef. Influenced by Ritz Carlton’s Chef Louis Diat’s French cooking style, Marcel blends this into his menus for Rawley’s Lighthouse 45 with flourishes of French cold-pressed olive oils, truffle oils, Herbs de Provence, and the restaurant’s herb garden. His French influences also feed his love of food plating with creations that are simple, yet visually appealing. In 1997, he was featured in Bon Appetit Magazines in BBQ issue, he was voted Orillia’s Best Chef in 2015, and won the Chopped Canada competition hosted at Casino Rama.
