We were in Halifax on a tour and had a free night for dinner. After checking menus on TripAdvisor we noted Estia was highly rated, diverse menu. Looked perfect. Albeit a little stroll up Spring Garden Rd. But it was worth it. After being seated, the Owner came over and went over the menu, made recommendations. They were very accommodating. We learned a lot about the food, her and her family. This is a family run restaurant and I felt we were treated like family. The food was wonderfully prepared and flavorful. Three in our group opted for fish and I, lamb chops. Soup and salads were also great. Had a lamb/vegetable soup. Fantastic!, wish I had the recipe. My only complaint was being too full at the end. We ordered one dessert to share for four of us. We were on a 10 day tour through Nova Scotia and PEI. This was one of our best meals. Had such a good time we had our picture taken with the owner. My advise, skip the expensive, touristy restaurants and head to Estia. Eucharisto !
