Cute, quaint and small however the food is amazing. Great selection on seafood... And other items however stuck to that given we are in the maritimes. Service was also good.. All were quite attentive. Thank you for a fabulous Lunch!!!

Run, do not walk (after making reservations, of course)! Ignore the exterior and be transported to a lovely supper club in The Hamptons. Innovatively designed interior has that "Shore Chic" vibe. Servers are lovely and accommodating and the impressively organized chef is quick to greet you, explain the menu, and make you feel welcomed. Before your first glass of wine... More

Don't let the outside fool you. Inside it is cozy. Chef Richard Moore is a Canadian treasure. We liked this place we ate here 3 times in two days. Everything and I mean everything is delicious, from the vegetables to the starch to the main course. The portions are large so look around and consider splitting some items. You have... More

Went for lunch after reading rave reviews on Trip Advisor. Welcomed nicely at the door and seated by the kitchen.. from then on it wasn't just a meal, it was an experience (as my wife put it afterwards!!). Before ordering the chef/owner (?) came over to say hi and told us to look at the plates of fish and chips... More

Nice view of the NFL Ferry from the parking lot in the back. The building is unimpressive from outside but nice inside. We would not have stopped without the high TripAdvisor rating. We got in but later lunch arrivals were turned away without a reservation. We both went for the Louisburg Snow Crab and were not disappointed. The sauces and... More

The food alone made this one of the best restaurants we have ever been to, but then add the personal service from the chef/owner (he's a character) and we had a meal we'll never forget. We ordered two entrees, a smoked salmon and a pistachio shrimp encrusted halibut. The chef asked us if we were sharing. Then, he put the... More

We have just returned from a whirlwind visit to Nova Scotia. We spent two nights on Cape Breton. We were fortunate to secure a reservation for this fabulous restaurant on our second evening. By warned though, place closes at 8:00 pm. We are a family of four, our daughters are 18 and 21. Puerto Vallarta is our favourite place on... More

We enjoyed fresh sweet mussels for an appetizer. My husband had the haddock and halibut. Generous portions, light batter, not greasy, fresh and meaty. Best fish and chips ever! I had the scallops which were pan fried in a light sweet & spicy sauce. Best scallops I've ever had. This restaurant was the highlight of our trip to Cape Breton.... More
