Typical ESM as far as food and decor are concerned. Good variety on the menu and the staff are attentive and friendly. If you want something out of the ordinary, there are restaurants in Sydney that offer a more creative menu, but East Side Mario's is a good, safe choice. And you can use your CAA card for a discount.

Standard ESM fare but very filling. Very friendly folks but seems to be the standard in Nova Scotia. Would go back just because of the people.

I have eaten at this Eastside Mario's on several occasions. This is my 98 yr old Grandmom's favorite spot to eat in Sydney! I'm usually a salad eater and have to say their salads have always been great as well. Fun atmosphere with prompt service. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!

East Side Marios is a fun place to go with family. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The service has been good each time we went, both friendly and efficient. The portions are large and their bread is delicious. There is a large enough selection for many tastes. The last time I was there, I was thinking that the atmosphere would... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday with family. Love the bread they bring at the beginning of your meal. Very warm always delicious. Have eaten there half a dozen times. Never a bad meal. It can be a longer wait if busy but that is to be expected.
