Loved the food, loved the old home. More formal than my favorite Blue Mussel, favorite only because I was doing vacation casual. Definitely a date night, anniversary, romantic place. Well trained, attentive service staff.

A special night in this fine dining restaurant in North Rustico. The restaurant is small and intimate with wonderful decor. Each course was fresh, well presented and oh so good. Our wait staff, Victoria, was outstanding. This was one of those special, memorable dining experiences that we will never forget!

Tanya our wait person took care of us from the moment we stepped into the establishment. She could not have been more helpful. The restaurant... More

Make sure you make reservations at "The Pearl" when visiting the central region of PEI. I ordered the poached lobster with seared scallops; they were done to perfection. The paper thin scalloped potatoes had just the right amount of crispness on the outside to satisfy the palate of any foodie who thinks potatoes are a boring root vegetable. I ordered... More

Closed for the season. The Pearl is located between the picturesque fishing village of North Rustico and Cavendish Beach on Prince Edward Islands North Shore. Once you step foot into this eatery, it becomes apparent why it has become a destination restaurant not to be missed. There is a love of detail that shows up not only in the food, but in the Pearl's ambience as well. The Pearl strives towards excellence, supporting local artists, farmers, fishers and foragers with the philosophy that sharing a meal that is fresh, creative and visual in an inspired setting, is simply the way it should be.
