Stopped for lunch with my husband and daughter. Service was great. Food was even better. Shrimp tacos and Caesar salad was delicious. House made dressing on the salad. Fresh house salsa on the tacos. Shrimp was not overcooked and had a wonderful flavor. Special was the lobster and crap salad on a croissant. So much fresh seafood on the sandwich.... More

The food is always fresh, always served well, always friendly good staff. It has gotten a little pricey. But the ambiance is lovely, the food great. Unfortunately sound travels so you feel that tables next to you can hear you; not so private. The bar in the first entrance room is beautiful. Excellent selection of wines/spirits. Not sure why it...

While driving from Halifax to cape Breton we stopped in antigonish for lunch. Good food. We really enjoyed the Mexican sope & curried vegetable & tuna melt. Some of our gang had the sausage flatbread which was okay but nothing special. I'd definitely stop here again.

Located on Main Street in Antigonish, this bistro has great food and great service. We ordered a combination of pasta and salmon dishes and all were excellent. They grow their own vegetables. My friend had the onion soup with cheese, which was plentiful. Prices are moderate, considering the quality of the food. We suggest you do not ask to sit... More

Very nice atmosphere with many pictures on the walls of the owner's trips. Atmosphere was welcoming and intimate. Outside patio was on a busy street corner so we opted to eat inside. Decor was excellent. Service was quick although it was not busy when we were there for our 6pm Thursday night dinner. Food was top notch and they have... More

Our party of 3 were treated to a wonderful mea. Perfectly prepared Bruschetta, Grilled Caesar Salad, A blue chees and walnut salad and of course Lobster were on our plates beautifully presented by an attentive server. Water glasses refilled, wine poured and never a need to ask as our server just magically appeared on cue. We shared a bottle of... More

My husband and I had been travelling for two months across Canada when we came to Gabreau's Bistro. Lovely little bistro, with great food, great service and a five minute walk from Whaddens Campground where we were staying, It was the best meal by far that we had in our travels. You will not be disappointed if you venture here.

We haven't eaten here in a couple of years and although the decor is lovely, we felt the food had slipped just a bit. Don't get me wrong it was fine but I expected more from this particular restaurant. The chowder was "watery" and my bread wasn't really fresh. My husband had a lobster/crab sandwich on a croissent and he... More

I have eaten in this restaurant many times and it is always my choice when friends and relatives are visiting. They have consistently the best service and food in all of Antigonish and we have eaten everywhere. Recently, I had relatives visit from Toronto who love eating out and travelling. They absolutely loved it. We had cocktails-they were so perfect... More

A lovely bistro with fabulous food! We had lunch--a carrot consommé that was very tasty, fish cakes and crab cakes that were excellent, and a salad that couldn't have been fresher as the greens are grown at the restaurant. The mango dressing was light and delicious, not at all like a syrup as it sometimes is. We ended with a... More
