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.

There were 4 in our party and we each ordered a different meal. All were excellent. The service was great, the atmosphere was fantastic and the music was great.

This may very well be a great place to eat, however we couldn't stay because unless you just want to give your kids fries there is nothing on the menu for them. We asked the server and another male employee and they didn't offer up any suggestions at all, didn't even try! So we had to leave.

It is less than a five minute drive from Annapolis royal on Highway 1. We went there on each of the two nights that we stayed in Annapolis Royal. Both nights we had Weiner... More

Biggest disappointment was the not real ooey gooey chicken! The quality of the food here was just so poor! I was expecting something delicious and locally made with lots of flavour. Unfortunately the menu was small, confusing and out of a group of no one was overly please with their meal. Something we asked for on the menu were priced... More

our summer does not begin until Sweet Secrets opens --- the only place in Nova Scotia that really knows what a veal cutlet should look and taste . .... we die when they close each autumn
