This was hands-down one of the best meals I have ever had. Who knew Halifax would have such an amazing restaurant? From the minute we walked in, everything was perfection. The service was amazing- attentive but not overbearing. The food was phenomenal. We started with a cheese plate, then had a bibb salad, and then I had a lobster and... More

We were aiming to go to "Two doors down" only to be told an hour wait, so as a group of 7 we headed out on a busy Friday night and were able to grab a spot here, and are so glad we did. The food was fantastic, the only complaint is that the service was extremely slow. I know... More

It was a little while ago now, but some friends and I enjoyed one of the most delicious, leisurely, and totally memorable dinners ever here. We took our time, ordered lots of apps, mains, and pretty much closed the place down. Great food, great cocktails, great atmosphere.

We had a lovely Sunday brunch, seated outside on a sunny day. The special was seafood crepes, which my sister thoroughly enjoyed. I had the French toast and liked it very much. My disappointment came with the bill. It was my mistake, really. I didn't read the beverage portion of the menu and ordered a coffee. What I received was... More

French style food with an extensive wine list. In fact one can say too many choices made it hard to decide. My appetizer of pork belly was very good but the salad nicoise which is the ultimate French salad was a small disappointment. I forgot to ask for the dressing on the side and found that the delicate greens got... More

Let me start by saying I was skeptical about the restaurant from the get go. I have just returned from spending a week "formidable" in Paris surrounded by authentic French cuisine. So, as soon as I sat down I asked our server, in French, if he spoke French. "Mais bien sure" was the answer. Gobsmacked and utterly delighted. I spent... More

The style and decor speak french bistro, so we dropped by for a late lunch. Many of the classic bistro dishes are on the menu which was a good start, but for us the problem was with the execution. The food was uninspiring to say the least, and the service was lacklustre. While the prices are about right the value,... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant for our last meal in Nova Scotia. It was a great lunch to end our holiday with. The interior is cosy French style. It was raining heavily outside and it was lovely to get into somewhere comfortable. The restaurant was very quiet, which is probably good as we had our 2-year-old with... More

Great prix fixe menu, great wine list, well prepared food and terrific service all lead to a very nice evening out. The server was very knowledgeable about the wines and the food and the bartender created some nice cocktails for us. We had steak frites, duck breast, moules, tuna tartare and creme brulees for dessert and were very happy with... More

We were four last night at this great restaurant. WOW! Service was great but the food was amazing. It truly is a French bistro from the décor to the wine and food! We were all impressed by the great food - appetizers, main course and the desserts....the chocolate grand marnier soufflé is to die for!
