Being honest, we stopped in here tonight for dinner, for the first time. The ambiance is delightful and is a Fine restaurant. The food is from scratch, onion soup has home made beef broth, beef goulash is so tender and lean, home made breads, cordon blue is very good, even the coffee and tea is great. Presentation is high, however... More

I visited today with my wife, choice of two restaurants only and chose restaurant Compose because I like seafood. Nice setting however no atmosphere, our waitress was so false it was laughable.... Food was good but the problem we had was that we were charged different amounts than what was quoted in the menu and the total bill was added... More

We wandered about looking for a nice place to have supper. This caught our fancy and made reservations with the owner, just as well as it, even mid week was busy. View was over the water and sunset was marvellous. Service was excellent and the seafood food haddock and Digby scallops or just scallops, all with hot from the kitchen,... More

This restaurant was recommended to us at the Visitors Centre. We liked our meal so much the first time that we made a reservation again for the following evening. The schnitzel dishes with spaetzle (egg noodles) were so tasty! Our dessert of house-made apple strudel was also beautifully presented and delicious. This restaurant is situated on the Annapolis River. In... More

We enjoyed our seafood, perfectly prepared. Wine was OK--they need to invest in a bit more inventory.

We enjoyed the Cafe Compose so much. The atmosphere is quaint with water views. The menu includes lots of seafood, including Digby scallops, and austian/germany favorites such as spatzle, schnitzle, and apple streudel. The dishes did not disappoint. They were perfectlly cooked and flavorful. I had the scallops with spatzle, and the streudel. The charming owner came to each table... More

We had dinner at Cafe Restaurant Compose on the recommendation of two locals.. Thankfully, we had made a reservation, as the restaurant was packed, but we were shown to a good table, got great service (thankyou Holly) and enjoyed our meal very much. DELICIOUS FISH… This is a small place, so call before you go.

Thank debbie29n
