Good hearty middle-European food.

This is the type of fare that you would get across central Europe. The only thing missing is the zither music. It has a limited menu but everything is well prepared. Over time we have found the food to be very consistent. The portions are large and tjhe prices are fair. I think this place is a... read more

Supposedly a local favorite. Goulash soup was thin and watery. Weiner Schnitzel was too heavily breaded and not thin.

We asked a local where we should go whilst in Annapolis Royal and they recommended Sweet Secret for home style European (Croatian) cooking. It is a quaint place on the outskirts of town that seems like it has been plucked froma Bavarian Village full of wood trim, lace curtains and even a water feature. The menu offered hearty goulashes, borek... More

We stopped for dinner on a night when we were seafooded-out. We started with the mixed green salad -- good, but could have had more inspired mix of vegetables. My goulash was tasty. My husband's sausage was good, but was a bit bland (we're more used to garlicky versions.) The homemade spaetzel and veges were good. I love red cabbage,... More

On our recent trip to Nova Scotia, we stayed quite near to Sweet Secret. The host at the place we were staying spoke well of the restaurant, so we gave it a try. I happen to be a fan of middle European cooking, and Sweet Secret was a very pleasant surprise. My wife an I enjoyed the caesar salad, which... More

The Grilled Salmon was perfect, portion wise and preparation. My wife had the the Chicken Stir fry and truly enjoyed it. Top ti all off with fun conversation with the owner and the Apple Strudel

We always have dinner there with friends when we are in town. A schnitzel and a glass of wine and all is good with the world. Good Croatian food, quality is always reliable, very friendly service.

We have had several meals at this restaurant and have been consistently impressed with the quality of the food. The goulash is the best I have ever tasted and would highly recommend it to people to try

I can't wait to get back to Nova Scotia to dine at Sweet Secrets each year and than thru out the summer. I was just there on their next to last night before... More

We tried this restaurant during our recent visit to Annapolis Royal. We usually enjoy schnitzel but were disappointed with what was presented here. It appeared to have been deep fried. Traditional German schnitzel is pan fried. The mixed vegies were 2 pieces of carrot & 1 each of green bean, yellow bean & broccoli. Not good value for the price.
