This Café has a really good menu. Our office staff go there often because food, service and not a long wait for lunch time. The atmosphere is great for casual, business meeting or group luncheons.

This was my first time here for lunch, and it was for work. I thought it was a really nice spot, and the staff were all very friendly. I had the NS Beef burger with their hand-cut fries and I thought it was excellent, the flavours were amazing I would definitely recommend it. Everyone else enjoyed their food as well,... More

Came back for a second and then third meal since my first visit. I like everything about this place. Lots of free parking and it's easy to get in and out of. The rooms are well thought out and the staff have been well chosen to represent. The selection is perfect and the food is well above par. The prices... More

I stayed here with business, close to where the customer is. I did not expect anything from the restaurant. I really think that restaurants in hotels are just another way for them to get money from you when you are there, they are in the hotel business not the food business. I have tried many times, but 99% of the... More

Quite expensive but this is a Wine Bar type of restaurant in a hotel. Not sure how busy they would be. Seems to be out of the way, being in a hotel. No one in when we were in. Ordered coconut shrimp, which was 3 shrimp on deep fried wontons, with coconut sauce, which worked out to $4 a shrimp.... More

We checked in a bit late, and didn't want to roam around to find a restaurant, so decided to eat in the hotel's own restaurant. It was a wise choice. I had the Spanish Paella, which was tasty, though I could have accepted a bit more spicing. My wife had the pan-fried haddock crusted with corn and sesame over rice.... More

This is not your average motel restaurant. The menu was extensive with lots of local emphasis. Our meal was superb. I had the scallops from the appetizer portion as we had shared a salad before.
