Probably the best resturant I have ever been to.

Fantastic food, amazing view, nice staff and lovely rooms. The best place we ate during our 3-weeks stay in Canada.

A gourmet restaurant. Barely hidden NS treasure. Just to give you an idea: reservation is advisable for a Monday night dinner.

Had been to the restaurant on July 11, 2015 for a lunch with our nephew. The lunch menu is standard fare, but each item has a "home made" twist to it. Everyone ate something different, and all of us enjoyed our selection to the last crumb. Went back on July 27, 2015 for a dinner with 12 family members. The... More

My wife and I had Sunday brunch at the Wild Caraway whilst driving the part of NS. My wive had the seafood chowder and a caesar salad and I chanced the fish-n-chips. My wife states that the chowder was one of the best she had ever had and my fish was delicately breaded and quiet tasty unlike the usual heavy... More

This place has a country ambience that reminds me a bit of the Ontario farm world of my grandparents (Huron County). The genteel, upscale version of that. :) Nice, friendly, slightly upscale atmosphere with a take on traditional meals by an accomplished chef. Service is superb and relaxed. I have to admit it has taken me awhile to write this... More

Lobster Bisque was excellent. I did not enjoy fishcakes which were heavily battered and deep fried. My wife had scallops pasta, very tasty but too much olive oil. Service and setting was excellent.

We stopped by for lunch while touring this area. This is a real find. The ingredients, flavors, and inventive craftsmanship show real talent in the kitchen. My husband and I split a lobster roll, chowder, and squash soup -- all delish! the beverage line-up is also not-the-usual: refreshing housemade sodas of unusual flavors (rhubard; ginger beer,) excellent iced tea, etc....

Me and my boyfriend stayed in Parrsboro overnight last Saturday with the plan to drive along the Minas Basin and ending up at the Wild Caraway. The staff were all very friendly, informative and helpful. They offered suggestions and explained in detail each meal we asked about. Our mouths were watering. We each had a small chowder (which I have... More

Excellent meal, comfortable ambiance. Well worth finding. We went there in the early evening after Kayaking on the Bay of Fundy. It topped off a very fine day.
