Staying at the Holiday Inn this hotel is located in you'd be surprised the difference from stepping from the hotel lobby into this restaurant. The restaurant is dated, same as the hotel, but it's like the restaurant has a switch turned on for customer service. They were pleasant, found me a place to sit to next to a plug so... More

Cafe 101 is located in the Holiday Inn Harbourview, Dartmouth. The menu had good variety, with imaginative ingredients. Also well priced, considering it is located within a hotel. Staff were friendly and efficient. The Cuban Pork Sandwich was extremely tasty and the side of seasonal salad balanced well. The other item ordered was the Spicy Beef Salad which included steak...

We tried this restaurant through groupon and we were not disappointed. The waitress immediately seated us and told us about the wine special as it was ending soon. That showed thoughtful care for the guests. Anita knew the menu and made excellent recommendations. The mussels in wine were tasty, the shrimp with the unique curry brûlée made for a great... More

I have eaten here many times with co-workers and absolutely love the meals I've tried. The food is always fresh, fast and mouth-watering. The service is friendly and efficient. Prices are very reasonable too!

My fiancé and I went here using a Groupon since we live in Dartmouth and were hoping to find a nice restaurant nearby. Most of the reviews online sounded great, so we could not have been more disappointed. Here's a breakdown of why: Food: - The water tasted funny (metallic/stale). - The food was horribly overpriced for the quality and... More

Even if I were not staying in the Holiday Inn Harbourview, I would consider going back to the restaurant - Cafe 101. The service staff is very helpful, the food is very good, and the prices are as reasonable, if not more reasonable, than other prices in the city.

The food is exceptional. The grilled salmon was coated with a sesame paste that gave it a different taste. The seafood chowder was definitely the best I ever tasted.

I have eaten here several times in the last few months. The best main I tried was the scallop dish, served with polenta and parsnip puree - it was quite good, but way too much food. The open faced shrimp ravioli has good food, but the pasta was mushy. I would avoid the bacon spaetzl (greasy), and pine nut pasta... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Harbourview which is connected to this resturant. The first time we came to eat was for a late dinner after we had walked Halifax all day. I ordered the crab cakes which were crunchy but flavorless. The topping thou was what brought the crab taste out. The second time we went... More
