I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The Wild Caraway to all and sundry. The the food is wonderful, the hosts are too and the location is great. It is out of the way but the drive there along the Mini Cape Breton trail is picturesque and it is worth going the distance for a terrific meal. I love the... More

Wasn't expecting to find such a nice little restaurant in such a tiny town in a remote spot, but this place is a gem. We had a delicious lunch here while exploring the town and nearby sights. I had a bbq beef sandwich and my husband had a lobster roll. Both were delicious though my husband thought the lobster roll... More

Ate at the Wild Caraway with my wife and daughter for my daughter's 10 birthday. The owners take pride in everything they do. The for is prepared with a lot of attention to detail. The atmosphere is the best. A great view of the harbour. Recommended to all.

We had the great pleasure of dining with friends at the Wild Caraway twice in the past month. The service and ambiance were superb. From the appetizers ( lobster bisque and seafood chowder) to the main meals ( Arctic Char and chicken) to the desserts ( our group sampled four) , was a culinary journey we shall not forget. If...

Having the opportunity of staying on the Parrsboro shore for a couple of weeks, we were able to enjoy two dinners and a Sunday brunch at the Wild Caraway - Andrew and Sarah never fail to delight - from the eclectic amuse-bouche (smoked tomato soup once and artichoke and pear soup accompanied by a delicious tiny bisquit) to the great...

An absolutely wonderful dining experience. The service was topnotch, the staff extremely friendly and the food was amazing. We went back twice in the 4 nights that we were in the area, as the meals were fantastic. One of the best meals I've ever had. The chief uses local ingredients, and the different tastes that he places together are superb.... More

What a great place! You have to check which days it is open, but the selection of seafood is attractive and there is a nice selection of wins by the bottle or glass. No need to dress up - it's very casual. Had we stayed in the area longer we'd have been back for more!

We had an errand in Advocate and heard of this restaurant. Although we had passed others, we wanted to try this one. They did not disappoint. The fish and chips were the best we have tasted in a long time. The chocolate cheese cake was tasty as well.

It was a rainy cool day as we traveled the area. Two different people we met during our trip recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We arrived at 4:15 - a bit early for dinner - but we decided to stay and start off with a delicious beverage - Maple Fog Cappuccino. Then as we waited for our... More

After reading so many rave reviews about this restaurant I was really looking forward to dining here. So when we visited Advocate Harbour this past W/E, immediately made a reservation Sat am before we went hiking. We arrived slightly before our 7:30 pm reservation & was seated at a table & given our menus. We gave our order when we... More
