My mother and I dropped in for a late lunch and had a perfectly lovely experience. We each had chowder and a salad and were very pleased by the tastiness of the dishes and the presentation and service. You cannot ask for more than that! I would definitely recommend this restaurant (at least for lunch).

We were delightfully surprised and impressed with this little bistro in Annapolis Royal. We arrived on a busy Friday night but both food and service were just right. The lobster roll and green salad were a tickle to the taste buds and the carrot cake was scrumptious with real cream cheese frosting. We would definitely go back here again next... More

The Bistro East is a casual place to eat somewhere between a pub and a restaurant. We had nachos, clam chowder and spicy tomato soup. All were excellent. We would go back there.

We didn't get to try the scallop pizza but I had scallops and they were cooked correctly and very tasty.

I heard this was THE place to eat in AR and while the service was good and the prices reasonable, the food really was just okay.

We wandered in searching for dinner. The staff were very friendly, offered suggestions and modifications due to lactose intolerance. Great meal - scallops, pizza and wine. Nice decor and interesting artwork for sale. I recommend it.

loved it all. Cedar Brie appetizer was amazing, the salad had the freshest fruits in it and our entrees were very good. we split the strawberry shortcake for dessert to finish a great meal.

While vacationing in this picturesque town we had a delicious meal in this charming restaurant, which features warm, attentive service and meticulously prepared food. Combined with a great Nova Scotia wine (they make some super vintages in this province!) it was a great meal
