While visiting PEI this summer with family, I happened to stop in at Dalvay with my mother in law as part of our slow drive along the coast while other family members played golf. What a beautiful property and although it was the end of August they had the giant fireplace lit in the lobby. Have to say, the warmth... More

Stopped in for tea after a bike ride and had the "sticky pudding." Wow! Great dessert worth stopping for.

Stunning presentation and flavourful dishes. Everyone told us the Sticky Date Pudding was a MUST have, so we had to try it for ourselves. It was indeed as everyone said it would be...Delicious!

We enjoyed a nice stay at Dalvay this summer for 3 days. The cottage accommodations were lovely. The restaurant was nice and the breakfast was delicious. It did not seem to be suitable for families though. We have two small children. We love spending time on the water and made use of the kayaks however they only supply one child-sized... More

Stopped in for lunch with my parents while on vacation. Had a lovely glass of Italian pinot grigio I wish I could find in Ontario, chowder as an appetizer, and the lobster club for a main. Dad had the fish and chips which were excellent. The chowder was the best I've ever had. Big pieces of beautiful seafood in a... More

Everything about Dalvay by the Sea is memorable. The building is historic and charming. The room that houses the restaurant is full of windows looking out at the lake and the Gulf beyond the beautiful lawn and gardens. Chef Chapman has put together a creative menu that will keep you coming back for several meals. Definitely must try it.

We had a lovely lunch here last year, but this year things were not up to last year's standards. Service was slow last year too, so that didn't surprise us, but there was a private function going on in the adjacent room and all of the kitchen's attention went with that party. I won't describe the disappointments as they were... More

Just posted a lengthy description of our two night stay. Overrated. Bait-and-switch at reservation. New poorly trained staff. Lovely location. Historic spot. Excellent sticky date pudding.

We had a bad experience at the hotel but put it aside to try and enjoy lunch. It was a bad scene. To begin, service was slow. Secondly, our food was terrible. My friend ordered the salmon that appeared to be a warm plate and when it arrived it was cold in entirety. Her partner is a chef and was... More
