Great place for a late dinner

We stopped by this wonderful town late (8pm) only to find that almost every place stops serving food at 7pm. Bistro Eats, however is open late. Having no other choices, we went there. And what a surprise! Their food was really, really good. Service was great. Highly recommend it at any time, but if... read more

Average food and service. Although gluten free pasta was a choice on the menu was disappointed in the quality of the presentation of the food and the taste of the gluten free pasta

We ate there twice on a 3 day stay in Annapolis Royal, so I guess that would double its stars to 10! Our innkeeper recommended it and also told us of her favorite dishes. We tried them both and they were terrific: the scallop pizza and the seafood supreme pasta. I thought my husband might lick the plate he loved... More

The food is good if a bit expensive. We ate there twice and lunch was good as was the service but we found dinner expensive and not very quiet.

Pasta like everything else here is made from scratch. Very easy to tell as the taste is awesome. Chocolate cake is sooo smooth and rich it is to die for .

Party of 4 for Valentines only 1/2 pleased. One steak not done as requested and sent back- medium well isn't hard I thought.. The other disappointment was the Greek Pizza; simple right, but was also unfortunately poorly done... soggy crust from feta cheese or fresh tomatoes who knows but really... this shouldnt be Greek to you. Pizzas are your Brand... More
