We ate here the night before we took the ferry to Newfoundland. The food was so good that when we returned from Newfoundland 11 days later, we knew where we wanted to have dinner. The place was full but we were happy to wait for a table while we sipped Nova Scotia beer. Once again the food was great and... More

This is THE best place to eat!! It is a must for anyone who is in the area. We were served a lovely herb bread with spicy olive oil and balsamic, then we had the bruschetta, caesar salad (I had the spinach salad), and we both had the pan fried halibut with dill sauce. It was a huge portion -... More

We sort of had our fill of lobster a seafood for a while, and were recommended to this place by a person who lives in the area. Good choice! While the menu has many tantalizing seafood options, there are also a number of pasta dishes, ribs, salads, mussels, etc. My husband and I split the excellent Greek salad. It's really... More

My grandkids think I am pretty cool, taking them to the Black Spoon while they were visiting in town. After reviewing the menu, the youngest grandson choose the ribs, the older grandson picked the haddock and my granddaughter and daughter choose the Maple Curry Chicken, I had the seafood platter. To our delight, it was all cooked to perfection, attractively... More

We were recommended this restaurant by someone in the Cape Breton info.booth in Halifax. We were very glad we followed her advice. Service was friendly and efficient, and the food excellent. I had the lobster pot pie and a spinach salad and my husband had the scallop carbonara. Both of us were very impressed by the calibre of the food.

The food here is wonderful and the service is very good. I really liked the decore of the restaurant, but I didn't enjoy sitting so close to the other diners. Due to its small size, we were very close to some of the other diners.
