Beautiful experience

This is a great place to stop for a meal. If you are in the area you must check this out.I think you will be surprised to find such a top notch restaurant in such an out of the way location.

This restaurant is a true gem. The food is innovative and mouthwatering, and service is excellent. Many items are picked fresh from their own gardens just prior to being served, and it does make a difference. The menu changes every two weeks. The owners are a delightful couple, who really go out of their way to provide a memorable dining... More

Sarah and Andrew are your ideal hosts. Friendly, knowledgeable, caring. The food is 'Relais et Chateaux' quality. You can never go wrong eating and staying here.

We actually drove about a half hour out of our way to come to a family dinner (without reservations!) on a busy weekend. The food is fresh and tasty - don't miss the chowder! And the desserts taste just... More

Advocate Harbour where the Wild Caraway is located is not exactly on a main highway in Nova Scotia but it is a easy, scenic and worthwhile drive along the Bay of Fundy shore on a great paved road, The restaurant is in a restored older home overlooking the harbour which has, in addition to the restaurant, two very comfortable rooms...

Apart from in Halifax we stayed in B&B's at Liverpool, Annapolis Royal, Windsor, Parrsboro and Amherst. Being Australian, fellow guests and B&B owners quickly advised us there was an exceptional restaurant named Wild Caraway, owned by... More
