This is a hidden gem to some but very well known by others. They provide an exquisite menu with gourmet choices worthy of the big cities. Locally sourced items are often included in the dishes and make for a unique experience for your tastebuds. Be venturous and order something new or you can't go wrong with their fish and chips....

This restaurant has a reputation as one of the best restaurants in NS (or even Canada) and apparently people travel to go here. My mother (who has very good taste and is quite fussy and critical of most restaurants) had eaten here a year ago was very excited to return since on the first visit it was the best restaurant...

This restaurant was hands down my best and most memorable dining experience in Canada. It could go toe to toe with great fine restaurants around the world, all at a very affordable price. We didn't expect to find this gem in such a relatively remote area. After we finished our dinner, we were obsessed in finding more about this place... More

Wild Caraway was one of the best meals we had in Nova Scotia. From the tomato mozzarella salad to the seafood tagliatelle, everything was delicious. In addition, the chef and kitchen staff were extremely accommodating when it came to our friend who was vegetarian. They created a wonderful vegetarian gnocchi that was off the menu. We highly recommend Wild Caraway... More

My wife and I were on a day trip and had heard of the Wild Caraway so stopped for lunch. What a wonderful find. Menu was full of great things making the hardest part what to choose. Food and service were both excellent and we will definitely return.

This is a small & very popular restaurant 7 suggest without a reservation it may be difficult to get a table. We called in for lunch & I ordered the pasta of the day & my wife the fish cakes. The food was fresh & very tasty. However, we both agreed that the herbs & seasoning did somewhat over power... More

We are never disappointed here. We visit yearly and this year we brought friends from Pittsburg, Penn. They also gave it a 5* on yelp. The chowder is filling so order one meal to share with another person. You will need reservations !
