We arrived here after the parade to celebrate Acadian day! We enjoyed the sunset and cocktails on the deck with breathtaking beach views until our table was free. Inside was lively and provided talented folks with a piano and string instruments who entertained us! A lovely evening! Also a great location as it is tucked along a string of shops... More

We stopped here twice during our stay on Havre Aubert. Once at lunch time when we just had excellent coffee. The place was busy and the service a little slow but the ambience was terrific so we were happy to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. We decided to return for dinner and were very happy with our experience. Again they... More

it would have been better if th kitchen music was going on i am sure, but we did not get that in low season when we went. Food was ok but not noteworthy. Actually liked the nearby Le Four A Pain better -- bring your own wine-- and found it friendlier.

We stopped for lunch and ordered 3 small appetizers to share. The mussels with Pied de Vent sauce were delicious. The "Assette de Grave" was a great discovery of the tastes of the iles (lobster pâté, onion jam, fish pâté, smoked sausage). And to compliment, fries with curry mayonnaise. We really enjoyed the accordion player singing old French songs, it... More

A good selection of bistro food locally sourced including many vegetarian dishes. They frequently have musicians performing in the evening to a full house of patrons. Though not for a quiet evening of dining out, this establishment is very animated and serves good valued dishes.

Lovely experience. On our first visit we had a Boar Stew that was one of the best restaurant meals I've in years, and also one of the best priced for this quality. Our waiter was dressed in playfully dramatic style: yellow shirt with turned up collar, a custom brocade tie with a double Windsor knot, black vest and white shoes.... More

Try the mussels with pied de vent (cheese) - sounds questionable but tastes great! Love the atmosphere - singing, music, instruments available so jump right in and sing/play. Locals, tourists love this place.

Great vista, comfortable and breezy, elegant decor, and food was delicious. Bouillabaisse was excellent. Nice wine selections and aperitifs. Lovely romantic dinner spot

I've had better meals here but the service at my most recent visit was excellent. It was on a Saturday night in the summer and the cafe was busy as expected. Our server was excellent. He made menu suggestions and alterations which were very helpful. I love the atmosphere in the cafe. The place isn't fancy but very representative of... More

Based on the TripAdvisor reviews, we expected this place to be very special and not to be missed. Although we didn't leave disappointed, it definitely wasn't all we thought it would be... On the plus side: The food was fresh and our waitress was nice. The location (La Grave) is also one of the best areas we visited on the... More
