Great food. Reasonable prices.

Comfy atmosphere. I've been here a few times and the food is always good. I like the fact that they have glute n free pasta and gluten free bread.

Have eaten here a few times now, and have yet to experience anything to complain over. The food is consistently good, the portions are satifying, and the prices are average. If you have room for dessert, the bread pudding is excellent!

We will definitely be back again. Food was excellent, service was just the right attention. One of our party wanted Tai she had the Tai shrimp. She really enjoyed it. Owners took time out to chat with us. It turns out they know people from our small town. Might be hard to miss if you were driving by as it... More

Back again to this little family gem. We checked the menue and then ordered the specials. My wife ordered the trout and I the tenderloin medallions, we shared a bottle of wine and looked around at the decor which is partly a collection of food packaging with the name Castle on it. No surprise, that's the owners name, cute though!... More

I don't think one could add any more positives to the previous review by Sandra T! Couldn't agree more. We were in the New Glasgow area for one night at a B&B and found a choice of three fine dining establishments online. As we were driving toward the downtown core, this restaurant was the first one to appear, on the... More

Upscale, yet casual. The owners are a welcoming couple who take a personal interest in their customers. Phil is the chef - trained as a navy chef with expertise is all aspects of the business. His wife, Darlene, is the hostess and waitress. Tables spaced so that conversation is comfortable. Decor is modern with a local twist - hooked rug... More

This is a very small 8 table restaurant with just the chef and waitress, which happen to be the owners and husband and wife. The food was hot and good but not great.

You can easily miss this wonderful little spot as it looks like a house, but it is worth it to find it. We only knew about it from a local who recommended it. I ate there twice in August 2014 while on holiday and it was delicious both times. The décor is very east coast and very quaint. The food... More
