They have several vegan options, so I was in heaven. It is a busy place, but that is because the food is very good. The ambiance is fun and inviting.

We had the gourmet pizza, burger, quinoa scallop pasta, and wine, which was all tasty, but I'd say good not great. The setting is very pretty cottage casual. The service was friendly and warm, but a bit slow. Very close to the hotel and. Good choice for arrival night.

My wife and I spent the last 10 days in Nova Scotia and returned to Halifax this afternoon to spend the night before flying out tomorrow. When we arrived at our hotel, we were discussing the food we've eaten oVer the course of our visit and trying to decide which was the best meal we'd had. It was a tough... More

This restaurant has an excellent menu featuring a variety of healthy choices. Some of the dishes are vegetarian and others not. There's lots of variety, the food was well-prepared, and the staff was attentive.

We had a lovely dinner here on a Tuesday evening near the end of summer. There were a number of good options on the menu, but we were delighted with our choices (see pics) - Chicken Curry, with LOADS of great vegetables, over Quinoa, and Haddock with a Flair, topped with a very good house made salsa, over rice. The... More

They have a nice beer selection. When my boyfriend could not decide which beer would pair well with the meal, they brought over 2 samples for him to try first. The food is quite tasty and fresh. The only thing is the view is not very nice as all the construction going on.

I had a great choice, am not vegan but as I am allergic to eggs eating can be a huge challenge. I asked the server as was torn between both starter and main and... More

Overall this is a very reliable restaurant that we have visited on a few occasions. We visited around 6:00 on. Friday night, and while the restaurant was starting to get busy there were still lots of tables. For some unexplained reason we were taken upstairs and given a table for two against the wall. In hindsight we should have asked... More
