I was part of a six-day "Backroads Company" biking tour of Nova Scotia which included many cuisine experiences as well as the ride. Many in our group dined at Cafe Restaurant Compose and consider it one of the best in an area that had many great restaurants. Every meal at the table, especially the scallops, drew praise. The service was... More

We were at this restaurant for the first time and it was really nice. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was really great. We sat outside by the windbreak and the view was absolutely beautiful. We had the golden Haddock and Schnitzel. It is a really great place to eat.

We had gone to town on the spur of the moment for a late dinner and didn't have reservations anywhere. We went into Compose thinking we would be turned away as it was very busy. However, the lovely owner came out of the kitchen and said we could stay if we would sit in the front room. This area isn't... More

We were so pleased to come across this restaurant and to experience the amazing patio and view at the back. There was also a lovely walkway beyond the patio along the water. The Austrian chef excelled at the Digby scallops, seafood chowder, schnitzel and apple strudel. Our server was most pleasant and accommodating. Enjoyed the lovely classical music as well.... More

Café Compose was our choice for dinner on both of the nights we spent in Annapolis Royal. While we typically try to sample more venues while travelling, the setting (think ocean and sunset views), food (Digby scallops and schnitzel were favourites), and hospitality were simply too good to forgo. Highly recommend!

Food was delicious. We had schnitzel, digby scallops, chowder, fish, and it was all good. The only problem was that our table was in the front and we were the fumes from the kitchen were not good. Wait for a seat on the water or make a reservation.

The welcoming professional staff, excellent food and ambiance and lovely location make the the place to eat in Annapolis Royal. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the great service. Not inexpensive but worth the price.

Turned up without a reservation, and our server, Angela, kindly found us a table even though they were extremely busy. Warned that there may be a delay in food, but with such a wonderful view we didn't mind. The food was excellent. We were only in the area for one night during our tour of Nova Scotia, so delighted that... More
