I ate lunch at Windows on the water during the 70 mile yard sale in PEI. This was my mother and fathers 3rd visit to the restaurant and they were looking forward to eating there again.

Service....Friendly but slow. Have been going to this restaurant for years. THE menu has never changed. Prices are a bit high. Nice atmosphere and great fresh bread. I'd rather go to Red's Corner. Have had lunch and dinner here. My review refers to both, On two visits I ordered the mandarin salad with seared scallops. BOTH times the salad was... More

It was a lovely old home converted to a restaurant with class and delicious, well presented menu selections. A bit pricey but within budget limits. Well worth the visit.

The food was good and the prices reasonable. We enjoyed sitting outside on their deck. Our waitress was pleasant and recommended a ceilidh that evening (just outside Montague) that was great fun.

We stopped here for lunch while driving around the east end of PEI. It was a beautiful Sept afternoon and we wanted to take advantage of the weather so found a nice spot on the patio. It was perfect. The view was so nice and relaxing. I decided to try the clam chowder and was blown away by all the... More

The setting was most pleasant, the food tasty and nicely presented, and the service was great. We asked to be served in time to go to a ceilidh, and we had a little time to spare.
