We have been aware of Wild Caraway, located in out-of-the-way Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia for several years, and read and heard rave reviews from many sources, but only recently managed to get there for a meal. There were four in our party and we were there on the final weekend of Wild Caraway's 2016 season. The dining area uses two... More

Charming location, quality food, great prices. Thanks for another great meal, we drove from Ontario and it was the best meal we had on the east coast!

By far, the best chowder I have ever had in the world. It had large pieces of seafood (scallop, shrimp, fish), fresh cream/butter, and a bright array of herbs! Better than any New England clam chowder I have eaten in my 32 years on this earth and living/growing up in Massachusetts.

I have eaten here many times and always had an absolutely outstanding meal. What has prompted this review is that I have just returned from Halifax where we had 2 lunches and 2 dinners out at three of the top ranked restaurants in that city. None of those meals could compare to the lunch I had today at Wild Caraway.... More

This was our Best dinner while on vacation in Nova Scotia! And amazingly, so reasonably priced! We had made reservations for 5:30 p.m. on a Friday in September. The restaurant was not very crowded, so we probably would have been able to be seated without reservations. Hubby had the special for the day which was Fish & Chips (he just... More

We were staying in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, which was about an hour drive from Advocate Harbour. We were told by three different locals to go to "Wild Caraway" because they do for special occasions. So we combined a day of exploration in the Advocate Harbour area with a late lunch at Wild Caraway. I had this sweet home-made Rhubarb Soda,... More

After a long 11 hour drive from Montreal, I was happy to finally arrive at my destination. I had been to Advocate Harbour a few times in the past, but always stayed at the Cape d'Or B&B. This time i wanted to try something different. Am I ever glad that I did. I was greeted warmly and shown up to... More
