I had some friends visiting with me from the states. I told them we had to eat dinner here. I didn't realize that the menu would be completely different from a few months prior, but I guess they go by seasons. The students also were on summer break, of course, with some remaining to work in the kitchen and dining... More

We'd been given a tip to eat at the Culinary Institute of Canada's dining room in Charlottetown and made reservations the day we arrived. The dining room is situated overlooking the harbor and offers a beautiful view. Be sure to request a window seat! The dining room is staffed by current a former students at the Institute. Be prepared for... More

Excellent value, fine dining in the Culinary Arts School. Second time visit. No kids menu but 7-year old grandson was game to try new things. Adults chose from the table d' hote menu - amazing as always. Expect to be seated on time and 3+ hours for the meal, well worth it. This time did not pre-book, lucked out with... More

My wife and I booked an early dinner reservation on the recommendation of a family member who now lives on PEI and were not disappointed. Because we were seeing a musical that evening, we had to be in and out fairly quickly. In spite of this condition (or perhaps because of it), we were ushered to one of the tables... More

My husband and I dined at Lucy Maud Dining room and had a very nice time. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced for the quality. The view from the dining room is spectacular. The service was a little shaky but that is to be expected at a teaching restaurant. Good place for a high end meal.

The service and food was excellent, i couldnt fault it in any way, but the main feature were the amazing veiws looking over Charlottetown harbour. The restaurant is in the Culinary College, so the outside of the building is nothing to write home about, but do not be put off as the restaurant itself is amazing. My only concern is... More

This was our first evening in Charlottetown. The Lucy Maud Dining Room was within walking distance from our hotel. The four of us left agreeing we had a special time. We had a table directly looking over the waterfront and watched sailboats and the sunset. We received competent and friendly service. We each ordered one of the four small plates... More

We were skeptical about this restaurant because of the industrial/dormitory look to the outside building. Once inside, however, our opinion of the venue changed. The dining room is elegant and offers beautiful water views. The food was, without question, the best we encountered during our tour of the Maritimes. Each course was delicately prepared and wonderfully presented. The wines were... More

Sometimes you should throw away the plastic bib, get more dressed up and try new things. The charcuterie was very interesting, the mussels were the best we've had anywhere ever.

This place has it all, excellent food, great service and a fabulous view - all in the Culinary Institute of Canada. We loved it so much, we went back another day during our week in PEI. Now I read that it is hard to get reservations but it is not that it is hard, it is because they are staffed... More
