We opted to dine here after our harbor sail. We closed down the place but never felt rushed. I had the magnificent burger and hubby had the mussels provance. Both were spectacular, tasty, flavorful, delicious. We started with soup (tomato cheddar for me and clam chowder for him). It truly is a find here in Lunenburg.

We had been looking for someplace since our son isn't a fan of seafood - yeah, right in prime seafood territory. We saw their menu and decided to try it out. We had the Mussels s la Provence. chicken tostada and Lobster Linguine. All three were excellent. My husband was trying to get as many mussels on this trip as... More

Others have written about slow service. I found it relaxed, not slow. Pleasant wait staff. Great artwork and silly collection of salt shakers. Cute. I ate the world's best mussels. My husband works in the seafood safety business and we never eat seafood unless the restaurant can tell us the country of origin. Our wait staff delighted me! The mussels... More

Four diners, one vegetarian. The mushroom risotto was not available although still written on the menu board. The only suggestion was to have the chicken totados without the chicken and more vegetables. It was ok however spicier than anticipated and we needed to ask twice for a refill of sour cream. The price was not reduced as"they added more vegetables";... More

We ate here twice during our 3 week holiday in the area. Both times we had the creole peanut soup which is a local favourite and I can see why. I had the fishcakes with a side of rhubarb chutney and a delicious caesar salad, my partner had the blue cheese burger. The burger was meaty and full of flavour.... More

I have never given a review here that really had anything negative to say- first time for everything. Based on reviews and ratings (trip advisor has been a great guiding tool for me), my daughter and I dined here today. A little disappointed in the service. There were 3 occupied tables inside(not sure what was outside), one was paying their... More

Key Lime Pie is lighter, tastier, more delicious than any I've had. Peanut Butter Mousse is worth going in just for dessert. And the food is really good. I don't eat then but everyone says the locally harvested Lunenberg Scallops, (PSN fried last night,) are the best on earth.

This is a lovely little cafe in the heart of Lunenburg. Friendly, and welcoming. The service was great. Our food was good, but we didn't feel that it was exceptional.
