Travelling to the Halifax Airport, I stopped here for a meal. Was greeted as I walked in by a very friendly cashier. I was seated quickly and got my water right away from a smiling and happy waitress. I ordered a two piece fish and chips, got it without delay and was very good, large portions and crispy fries.

No Heinz ketchup and vinegar in packets and tarter sauce is NOT good and you only get a tablespoon full with a $11 two piece order. Coffee cost $2.50 and you won't get a refill.

While the ambience of this Truro restaurant is comfortable, the food does not measure up. It's signature dish is classic fish'n chips which is no less than the heavy battered somewhat greasy fare available in many food establishments in the town.

The fish is so fresh and the fries so flavourful that you will be smacking your lips as soon as you see someone else's order go by. Servings are quite large so you will not go away hungry:)

Although the service was fast and friendly, the fish and chips were a little too greasy for my taste. The other items on the menu sounded good, however we didn't have an opportunity to dine at this restaurant again. There was also no beer or wine available, only tea and soft drinks.

Amazing! My husband said it was the best fish and chips he's ever had. The staff were exceptionally friendly. The prices are very reasonable. A must go.
