Nice older diner down the road from Peggy's Cove and Tantallon. Nice supper and friendly folks. Average food with smallish portions. Quiet & reasonable.

We were a group of six and we stopped here for lunch during our day tour of the area. We had the lobster rolls and mushrooms, and both were good. We had good service and enjoyed our lunch.

We stopped at Finer Diner with our tour guide Les, and enjoyed a good lunch. The server was very nice and attentive. The views of the cove were beautiful and I have lots of pictures! The fish fillets my husband had were worth bragging about to our fellow cruise passengers. I had a lobster roll and it was good. I... More

It's the attention to detail, the never miss... More

The Finer Diner is located on a great inlet. A beautiful place to enjoy the landscape while eating dinner. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was good.

The food here was very good. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of the harbour nearby. The service was cheerful and prompt. we arrived at opening time (11:30 AM), and by the time we had finished our meal and were preparing to leave, there were people waiting for tables to be freed up.

This restaurant has a nice location and a beautiful view if sitting outside. We had the lobster club and the lobster Caesar. Both were very, very good and full of lobster. Draft beer was cold and went perfectly with the meal. The seafood chowder was good, but we wish it had less potatoes and more seafood. What brings down the... More
