The clubhouse meal here is amazing. The best I have had. Top this meal off by sharing a piece of carrot cake and you have a meal fit for a king!

Delightful place for dinner. Food, beer and wine all great with wonderful service. Just a cozy place for dinner and could get as much or as little as you wanted.

I only get a chance to dine here once maybe twice a year but I love their food, atmosphere and the staff are always so pleasant. A great little spot to take friends for a home cooked meal.

Enjoyed the seafood chowder at Bistro East...rather sorry that I had ordered the cup instead of the bowl as it was excellent. I had carrot cake for dessert and that too was very good. Service was prompt and staff were pleasant. I would happily eat there again and I am sorry I live to far away to do so anytime... More

Great food and view of the water from this Bistro. Prices were very good as well as the service. They took us without a reservation which is more than I can say about the other eateries in town who turned us away.

Stopped after shopping in town and was on my way to visit the local wineries. I was disappointed they didn't have local wines on the menu. Restaurant was nice and clean with friendly service. Had the tomato soup to start, then blacken haddock and chai tea in-lieu of dessert . Loved the food!! (Just enough spice.) Would recommend to friends... More

In my hometown I would recommend this as the number 1 place to eat. The food is great, atmosphere is great and very friendly service. A good variety of food to choose from on the menu.

Had dinner here while on holidays. Good experience and food. Understaffed yes but didn't mind waiting. Had some local beer. Scallop pizza and starters. Excellent espresso based drinks as well. Bit pricey but in tourist spot so understandable. Would return.

Our meals were very good. We arrived early and things went well until they got busy. Obviously under staffed. After it was busy, we hardly saw our waitress, even to pay our bill. Talking with some locals, this happens frequently at this restaurant.
