We recently had a fine Saturday lunch at The Tempest, soon to be re-named "Front and Central". Service was friendly and efficient, and the lunch menu had lots of fine choice at fair prices. Portions were not obscene, save for the desserts, which were bountiful. But one cannot have too much chocolate. This is not an everyday restaurant, as it... More

This is a lovely place for lunch or dinner. I went today for lunch with a friend, the service was very good and the food is stellar.

The new owner/chef prepared a dinner we will not forget soon. Every course was a real treat and the wine pairing was very, very good.

Relax, enjoy the pace. Great food...limited menu but everything is wonderful no matter what you pick. Small facility so make a reservation. Enjoy and make a memory.

Tucked away on a little street in Wolfeville, Nova Scotia is a real eating treasure. The food and the service were top notch! The menu was interesting and the wine list serviceable. This is local food at its best! Don't miss it!
