Called into Pier 36 without a booking and was taken straight to a table, the restaurant was beautifully decked out with lots of Christmas lighting which added to the Christmas atmosphere. Once seated the staff made us so welcome and continued to do so throughout our meal. I can sometimes be hard to please but the food we had that... More

I went to this bar/restaurant for dinner on Saturday 13 th December in a group of about ten. The place was busy in the pre Christmas rush and their was a good buzz about the dining room. The menu was extensive and quite reasonably priced. The service although obviously under pressure with the numbers was welcoming and efficient. The food... More

I'd booked, well in advance, for six people and specifically asked for a large table. I was assured I'd get 'two tables for four pushed together and set for six.' We ended up with a table, in a very dark alcove, which would have been OK for four, but definitely not big enough for six. When I complained I was... More

The wonderful warm atmosphere envelops you upon opening the door.....a gorgeous log fire burning inthe grate ,much appreciated on a day when the Arctic winds howled around the harbour. Old-style comfort,friendly attentive staff and gorgeous food at sensible prices......why go anywhere else? Ask if they have any home-smoked haddock or cod.....ask for it with veg and the creamiest mash you... More

Decided to treat ourselves instead of cooking so headed down to Pier 36. Had a really lovely meal beside the blazing fire so on a cold winery night was great. I had beautiful scallops, cooked to perfection and hubby had an excellent steak. Lovely meal with a warm cosy atmosphere.

First time visit to the place. Walked in and was impressed by the way it was set up. Plenty of space to move and around each table. Menu was varied and not expensive. Good variety of beers and ales. Staff were friendly and service was very good. Quality of food was excellent. Would highly recommend.

Recently took family here for dinner, as it was a saturday night it was very busy. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared, I had scallops on a lime risotto followed by duo of beef with colcannon. The only downfall was the wait between courses hence the rating. Nice touch that the owners introduced themselves and are hands on. There... More

I kept meaning to go back and review my meal at this most excellent establishment, apologies for the delay. I had crab claws for a starter. Cooked nicely, a little spice, yum. Followed up with the rib eye. The beef was tender, well seasoned and absolutely delicious. It's a foreign concept to Canadian diners to have "a sauce" with their... More
