Killer Scallop Pizza and Lobster Roll!

They were so friendly and accommodating - I ate several meals there while visiting. Enjoyed the tomato soup - wish I'd tried the seafood chowder which sounded amazing. Seafood pasta was delicious. It's an easy and casual place to fall into during your visit to Annapolis Royal.

We stopped in here for lunch today,it was my wife's first visit. I had the steak & cheese on a multigrain baguette with a green salad and it was simply delicious. My wife had the chicken quesadilla and she was very pleased with her meal. We also had a piece of homemade carrot cake for desert and it was delicious... More

We came into this restaurant because our original plan fell through. But I'm glad we came. I had the seafood chowder and seafood Supreme which is homemade pasta with fresh lobster and scallops in a cream sauce. The chowder was missing a bit of salt (I eat salty) and the pasta was sublime. I'm glad we discovered this little restaurant.... More

Great little place with local food. We had chowder and sandwiches - both excellent. Lots of local people there as well as visitors. Good coffee too.

We can't decide what we loved more.... Cedar brie appetizer served with garlic, fresh fruit and 2 kinds of bread. Amazing steak sandwich with savoury salad that equaled the club my partner had. Our desserts were decadent. Mine was a mini chocolate mousse. Next time the full size! The chocolate cake with brandied cream was heavenly.

Booked for what turned out to be a very busy Friday evening with numerous people turned away. Looked equally busy on Saturday so worth booking Very nice restaurant with nice feel. Certainly recommend to friends. Food not massive portions but beautifully cooked and very tasty. Prices average for type of meals. Enjoyed the Thai curry chicken and pasta. Fish, pizzas... More

Open until 10pm, which helps those who are arriving late in town as many of the other restaurants are not open past 9pm. Food was good, not outstanding. We had the proscuitto wrapped scallops which were great. The Lobster Pizza was OK, but didn't have enough Lobster on it (mostly just cheese). The Meat Lover's was good, the home-made pizza... More

When we asked our innkeeper about Bistro East, her response was" I hear the food is good but the service is a bit spotty". So we went to Bistro East with fairly low expectations. The wine list was OK if you ordered a bottle, and luckily we found a white we would both drink. We were blown away by both... More

We decided we needed a pizza, and saw some pizza options on the menu. We had "the works," which was some of everything, on a good crust. We split a large Ceasar salad, which seemed a bit stingy to call it large and for the price charged. It was good, no more. A variety of wines are available by the... More
