We had lunch at this restaurant on our trip to Nova Scotia. Wonderful menu. Wanted to try it because we had had dinner at their other location at the Big Fiddle. We were not disappointed! The lunch menu was varied and delicious....great chowder!

A very appetizing menu that offers creative dishes and atlantic favorites. Their chowder was tasty and full of seafood. Their chicken avocado sandwich was superb. You can overlook the water and harbor as you dine. What a great dining experience. A must do in Sydney.

Took friends to this Flavor Restaurant for the first time, but was confident because of having been in their two other locations in the city.. Not disappointed! A great portion for a very reasonable price. They infused their water with lemon and cucumber. I had never had that before and it was awesome.

I love their concept of sandwich wars where they change the menu every summer and whatever sandwich combo is most popular makes it to the 'permanent' menu. The panini and wraps that we had were fabulous - packed full of flavour and juiciness but I have to say that the salads were the standout dishes. In a way I wished... More

had a great dinner - scallops in bacon were excellent, and panko-crusted haddock. and the salads with the meal were among the best I have ever had. we made a reservation, but none was needed on an early Wednesday night. our server was very friendly and helpful. would go back again, if we were staying longer. very casual setting.

A wonderful find in downtown Sydney. It's a tiny space, so by all means make a reservation. We, unfortunately did not have one, so the hostess offered the only two seats left at the window bar. It worked out perfectly, because the food was awesome. Friendly and accommodating staff, and a place we would definitely return to some day. Be... More

Quick summary: fresh, well-prepared inventive food served in a casual setting. Excellent service. This is for the Flavor restaurant downtown, not the harbor. My husband and I had dinner here. The menu is quite varied with panini sandwiches and wraps, salads, soups, items for a paleo diet, etc They go out of their way to offer unique ingredients prepared in... More

We went for lunch at Flavor today and we thought it was excellent food, good wine list, nice atmosphere and the food was really fresh and good. The server was very attentive, knowledgable, conscientious and thoughtful. We had three bar bites, all of which were seafood and they were superb. We will be going back several more times during our... More

I have eaten here at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Tonight was the chicken breast stuffed with sun dried tomatoes. Fantastic.
