Digby scallops and river views

The back of this restaurant is a roofed atrium facing the river. It was a lovely experience, the scallops were excellent, and there was a riverwalk back to the center of town. Highly recommended both for food and service.

Consistency is a thing to value. We never fail to have a good experience here. Wonderful staff, a gifted, uncompromising chef in the kitchen, great atmosphere, and a beautiful view of the basin.

The dinner we had at this restaurant was one of our best during our week stay in Nova Scotia. The excellent quality of the ingredients and the fine cooking by the chef made it a truly outstanding meal. Delicious! The fish tasted very fresh, gently prepared, just great!
