Just found out that Nicki's proprietor died in spring of 2016. The establishment is closed and the property is listed for sale. Sad as Nicki was a congenial hostess, served excellent meals and offered a few tidy rooms above the restaurant. Perhaps a new owner will reopen.

The room was great and the dining was even better! We were disappointed that we were not able to meet Niki because she had passed away 3 weeks earlier. We enjoyed the large room with a private bath. We were also a small walk to the harbor. This is a great place to summer and has sensational views of the... More

10 of us shared an wonderful dining experience. The food, both dinner and dessert and the service, were top notch. A lovely atmosphere, with crisp linens and soft lighting. Conversation flowed and the restaurant never got too noisy, the way so many do these days. Highly highly recommended for "foodies" everywhere.

Absolutely wonderful stay - flexible and kind staff, we loved the jacuzzi tub and the beautiful room. Gorgeous town, perfect location and a lovely town. There were lots of amenities in the room we didnt expect! We hope to come back again soon!

Food was excellent and the atmosphere fantastic. Desserts were absolutely wonderful. There was five of us and we each ordered a different entree and dessert and shared. The entire experience could not gave been better. Our waitress was great. We consider this place a definite treasure find while visiting Nova Scotia.

We recently had a business meeting at Nicki’s. The restaurant consists of one large beautifully finished room with lots of windows and a nice deck area in front. The meal was spectacular, with great presentation and delicious flavors. The staff was both courteous and efficient. I highly recommend it.

Our second trip to Nova Scotia and just had to stop by Chester again. We thought we would go back to our original restaurant but it was too busy and noisy that night so decided to try Nicki's. We had been touring around so much that we had forgotten it was Sunday, Father's Day. On Sundays it's a set menu... More

Just wondering how two 5 star reviews equals a 4.5 star rating.....We eat at Nicki's at least once a week in the summer and have never had anything but outstanding meals! If you like a carvery, make sure to stop by on Sunday!!!
