On the advice of TA we had a wonderful dinner at Fleur de Sel. We were quite surprised a meal of this quality existed in a small seaport town like Lunenburg. Most of the dinning options involve seafood, not French cooking. We had outstanding steak and my wife had a lobster dish to kill for. I included a picture that... More

This is my second visit here - and a few years have passed in between. As before, wonderful food and charming service in a quaint old home. The yellow fin tuna tartare was fresh, dressed with a light subtly flavoured vinaigrette and simply amazing. The butter poached lobster reminded me how superb this often mistreated crustacean can be. Truly a... More

This is the third time that I have dined at Fleur de Sel. I had the fois gras to start and my partner had the lamb carpaccio. The bread that accompanied the meal was fresh, and I liked that there were 3 types. There was an amuse bouche, which included tuna tartare, marinated baby octopus, and beet salad. All were... More

We have had a great diner at this restaurant. It has been our most expensive diner during the last week when visiting Nova Scotia, but it was defenitly worth every dollar. I started with the Tuna, very fresh and a good portion. For mains I had the Lobster which was superb, and my husband had the Duck which he said... More

Had a lovely, relaxing dinner at Fleur de Sel. Started with smoked salmon, then lobster and halibut. Doughnut desert was well worth it. Everything perfect. Giddy, our server, was very professional.

My husband and I ate here on our first anniversary for a nice fancy dinner experience and we weren't let down. The staff is exceptional - friendly and professional, while the atmosphere is classy, rich and inviting. We ordered the oysters as an appetizer which were to die for. Three oysters (two of each) plucked from a different area of... More

Always a great meal, with service and setting to match. The lobster is hard to beat - but so are the scallops, oysters, duck etc - you get the picture.

Fleur de Sel was our favorite restaurant in Nova Scotia. The quality of the food was equal to fine dining establishments in any large city. I had halibut, which was delicious, and the size of the portion seemed quite reasonable to me, although I see several prior reviewers considered it small. My wife had a scallop dish which she pronounced... More

My husband and I enjoyed Fleur de Sel. The service was great and the food was of high quality, although some of the portions were quite small. There were not a lot of options for a gluten-free dessert either. Overall, we would recommend this restaurant.
