I had the lobster risotto and it was delicious. The service was excellent as well. My husband had the lobster linguine and he also enjoyed his meal. They also have a number of German dishes which looked great.

Went to this restaurant with a "foodie" to try a different type of menu as so many restaurants only have deep fried everything and Restaurant Compose was recommended to me. What a delight. Beautiful surroundings, lovely water view and great staff. When the food arrived it was worthy of a magazine shoot and the taste matched the presentation. Will go... More

We cannot fault this establishment. The menu provided a good choice of meals, the service was attentive and friendly and the food was good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere in the restaurant promoted chatting with adjacent tables and we had two enjoyable visits. We were also there at sunset and the view across the bay with the sun sinking behind... More

We have eaten here many times before and it is absolutely one of our favourite restaurants in town. Amanda who is the owner/chef has hired an equally talented chef from Switzerland to help in their very busy kitchen. Between the two of them they produce incredible food. We were there celebrating a birthday and Amanda surprised us with a glass... More

I was in Annoplis Royal with three friends. The weather was horrible but lunch was great. Soft music, good wine, wonderful lunch. We had the curry chicken sandwiches, hot lobster on toast and lobster sandwich. They were all delicious. We also had desert. The struddel was great . It is a lovely spot on the water.

Not sure why there's any real negative reviews on here. All I can say is maybe the negative reviews are from negative glass half full expect everything now kind of people- if you get my drift! The service and food was awesome. Second year in a row and everything was perfect. The risotto was the best I've tried. French onion... More
