A Bucket List Restaurant

It's a cool experience eating at this restaurant. First- the views of the harbour are amazing and you can often catch a sail boat race. Then the food is inventive and good- keep in mind, these are still students, so they are learning how to make five star dishes- sometimes the succeed, sometimes... read more

Located in the Tourism and Culinary Centre it is part of the Culinary Institute of Canada which was established in the early 1980s. At the time the founding fathers saw a need to improve the culinary experience on PEI. Little did they realize that the Institute would become recognized around the world as students and instructors from many countries make... More

Just what the other reviewers have said....we found a lovely diningroom, staff very professional (all the staff...reservation, hostess, waitress, deliverer, and even security guard were delightful), and of course the food! The smoked seafood tray to share and entrees of duck breast and lamb shank were excellent. All together a wonderful, fine dining experience on our last night in Charlottetown.... More

Evening - 2015-07-18 We had the best meal we have ever had the good fortune to experience at the Lucy Maud Dining Room this Saturday. The dining room itself is lovely albeit a bit dated in decor, but the gorgeous view and the amazing staff make up for it 100 fold. We arrived a bit early so we had time... More

The other recent reviewers have said it all, dispute the location in the college, Lucy Maud is sublime. The food is not simple but is cooked to perfection, as good as any produced by top UK celebrity chefs. My wife and I can’t eat massive meals so just stick to the main course, and with all the nice little complementary... More

This restaurant is run by the students of the Lucy Maud cooking school. The food and service are equal to a first-class restaurant. Like other restaurants on PEI, they feature local products, and even have a "forager" who brings wild foods: mushrooms, fiddle-head ferns, and the like. Every table looks out over the water, where sailboats and other craft move... More

Maybe a lack of marketing is the cause, or the location in an industrial-looking building, but wow, it deserves a full house. The building is actually right on the waterfront, the restaurant is on the second floor, with water views on two sides. Students are the servers, and our Second-year server was both personable and knowledgeable on both the food... More

We were told that during the summer break the instructor becomes the head chef and the four top students become the assistants. If the quality of the food and the dining experience is any indication of the quality of the school experience, those interested in a career in food prep might consider going here. We enjoyed every thing about the... More

This is a Culinary Institute teaching restaurant so it requires a little patience. Depending on the time of year, students or graduates may be preparing the food. The menu is creative and aggressive so this is a place for foodies with a tolerance for a few gaps. When we were there on a Friday night in June, it took 2... More

Exceptional service. Food was excellent. Free appetizer with entre purchase in a travel guide book made it very affordable.
