Family ate there for lunch. Great view on the back patio. Portion sizes were small for the price. Had the lobster roll. Overall was good. Service was was a little disorganized.

“Good food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Damp drizzly evening but still a great view over the Annapolis River. Warm, welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff.
Nice mixed salad, well dressed and presented followed by the pan fried scallops.
But why do they have to chuck away the roe and only serve the meat?
Anyway, succulent and full of flavour.
Spoilt by stingy glasses of over priced wine and the coffee was cold.

“Very friendly, and attentive. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Great fresh food. We each had the schnitzel with spaetzle, sat on the outside deck, really couldn't have been nicer! Can't wait to go back for the lobster linguine.

“High quality meal in a rural seaside setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

I had the almond breaded haddock with fiddleheads, asparagus and rice. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. The breading was light, tasty and non oily. The fiddleheads and asparagus were cooked to maintain the correct firmness. The wine had a good variety but would have liked more by the glass. The apple strudel was wonderful. Price was slightly high but the atmosphere and quality of service compensated.

“European cafe in the oldest town in Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Amanda's talent with cuisine is evident in whatever you choose from her varied menu. She also has the finest seafood chowder this Haligonian has ever tasted.
With her new covered patio on the boardwalk it is also a super place to have a vino.
