We were staying in Advocate Harbour for a few days and TA reviews necessitated a visit to the Wild Caraway. We mistakenly did not make a reservation (Saturday night) so we enjoyed a few drinks on the garden patio during our wait. It was a cool night and the hostess provided a nice wool blanket. We were seated at a... More

We decided to head up this way to see this coast line on the way to advocate harbour where I had read a review of the Wild Caraway. The fall colours made the up and down winding road a spectacular adventure. The Restaurant was everything we had heard, spectacular food. The Caesar salad was the best I'd ever eaten, smoked... More

I dined recently at Wild Caraway in Advocate Harbour. It certainly lived up to its billing as the top rated venue of the area. The freshness of the seafood and its unique preparation was outstanding. I had a grilled halibut steak served on a Spanish style bean and tomato ragout that was as tasty as it was beautiful to the... More

Great menu, nice site, scenic area and great lunch. Restaurant is very open with many windows and some tables with a bit of privacy. My wife enjoyed the fish and chips with haddock loin and fresh cut potato fries and tasty coleslaw. I enjoyed a great seafood pasta with penne, gouda cheese, capers, small shrimp, lots of fish - salmon,... More

This restaurant is worth the trip to get to it. Treat yourself and go. If you are a foodie or just like to eat it is worth the experience. Be sure to make a reservation. The drive from Parrsboro to Advocate Harbour is like a little mini Cabot Trail. En route stop at Spencer's Beach/Island exit to enjoy the shore... More

The Wild Caraway has consistently great food. The restaurant itself has a wonderful feel with local paintings and hooked rugs, etc. The staff are always warm and efficient. It is an all round great experience!!!

This is a gem of a place - like the awe-inspiring geology in and around the Minas Basin in Advocate Harbour, so thrives this wonderful restaurant. Genius cooking. Terrific service. They make their own bacon, grow their own wild blueberries and attend to local foods like scapes, local squid among many other things. Beautiful and delicious food; casual open service... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us and did not disappoint. Excellent menu choices and wonderfully prepared. Also, considering the quality of the food, very reasonably priced.
