Awesome, Awesome, Awesome.. I just can't wait to go back. It's a totally different atmosphere than you would expect! The owner was very informative of the dishes and of the area. Exceptional service and cozy, relaxing environment that makes you want to come back for more! You can tell the owners take pride in their art of cooking delicate cuisine..... More

My wife and I stumbled across this spot on a random drive. We were hungry and most of the spots were closed. Fortunately they were staying open a bit longer than normal and so we were able to enjoy a wonderful lunch. We sat at a table by the window, which was nice because you got the view, the sunlight...

Delicious food, fresh and carefully prepared, and served by prompt and friendly people. The ambiance is cozy and lovely, striking the perfect balance between casual and elegant. The fresh baked caraway rolls with a warm dipping sauce were served as soon as we sat down. We enjoyed the local Jost wine with our meal. We loved the dinner so much... More

We drove down to this lovely part of the Maritimes tonight to experience yet again a wonderful jewel of a restaurant. We have had the good fortune to have experienced many wonderful restaurants in the world, but are really blessed to have one of the best so close by. Everything is freshly made and incorporates many local ingredients. The starter... More

We stopped here based on TripAdvisor reviews and it didn't disappoint. They had quite a group of Motorcyclists visiting and service was a little slow but the food was outstanding. The restaurant is a converted house and there is memorabilia everywhere. Brought back a lot of fond memories of growing up. Good parking on sides and back.

The parsnip soup with That Dutchman's "Dragons Breath Blue" cheese was delicious and beautifully presented. The scallops with green tomato purée and chutney were perfectly prepared. Setting at table and being able to see the pier where the scallops were landed makes this a very special place. Wild Caraway is a world class bistro, expect fine dining and an expert... More

We arrived to this area around 1pm and were so hoping we could eat at Wild Caraway. We had a table for 2 overlooking the water. Even though they had a large group of bikers that they were serving, we still received attentive service. The seafood chowder was impeccable. Such a beautiful presentation and just delicious. We shared a haddock... More

Worth going to, stay at Driftwood Park Retreat in Advocate Harbor, 'cause this is remote. Extremely sophisticated food in middle of nowhere on the Bay of Fundy.
