Everything was great except for the scallops! Definitely overcooked and didn't taste like scallops. Fresh vegetables were super and the appetizer of beefsteak tomatoes was excellent. We would have been okay with the price if it had been better. (but NO!)

Seared scallops on a bed of tender veggies - lovely! The service was good and the staff were friendly.

Had two meals here whilst in Annapolis. Food was OK as was service but there was nothing to mark it out of the ordinary. Preferred sitting inside than out where we got cold.

I wish we could review this restaurant as well as some others, not sure if we had a fill in chef. The staff were so friendly, the service was fantastic, polite and prompt. But the quality of food was bland, lacking flavour or basic seasoning. The vegetables were fresh, but little was done to create flavors. We had the scallop... More

I ordered a fillet steak medium, got a strip steak well done. My wife ordered a red Thai curry with seafood and instead got what was the generic yellow curry flavor. The chocolate mouse was boring and the creme carmel which is supposed to be creamy tasted ok but had the texture of cottage cheese. The only good thing was... More

We sat on the screened porch, which was as charming as the rest of the building. The grounds are beautifully kept and the decor is inviting. Since we are (mostly) vegan, we needed to ask for special accommodations to the menu, which the server and the chef were more than happy to do for us. The food was delicious!

We stayed one night and were absolutely impressed the service, food and accommodations. Breakfast was delicious and dessert the night before was to die for. We stayed on the top floor and our room was clean and refreshing. Would stay again anytime.

Had a lovely meal here on our first night in Annapolis Royal. My husband had the beef sirloin and I had the pork medallions. Both were very good and the plate when it came looked great with all the different vegetables and sprinkled with flowers.

My husband and I were travelling through the area and were fortunate enough to have someone recommend this restaurant. My husband had the grilled caesar salad to start and I had the soup of the day. We both had the steak for the main course and it was absolutely perfectly cooked and so tasty! We would recommend you visit the... More
