Seasonal restaurant located in Granville Ferry, NS. Very clean and comfortable little restaurant serving freshly prepared meals. The restaurant is licensed and air conditioned. The menu could definitely use some more items to update it but other than that the food is good and the service is excellent.

Our inn hostess recommended this place and we were not disappointed! Yes, the service may seem slow by American standards, but it is very European in style. I'm from Maine and I know scallops, but the Digby scallops were hands down the best I've ever eaten. Never had Spaetzele before, but thought they were a tasty alternative to rice or... More

Interesting and tasty foods. Very genial and informative host. We liked the décor which had a European feel to it.

Supposedly a local favorite. Goulash soup was thin and watery. Weiner Schnitzel was too heavily breaded and not thin.

This is the type of fare that you would get across central Europe. The only thing missing is the zither music. It has a limited menu but everything is well prepared. Over time we have found the food to be very consistent. The portions are large and tjhe prices are fair. I think this place is a good place to... More

We asked a local where we should go whilst in Annapolis Royal and they recommended Sweet Secret for home style European (Croatian) cooking. It is a quaint place on the outskirts of town that seems like it has been plucked froma Bavarian Village full of wood trim, lace curtains and even a water feature. The menu offered hearty goulashes, borek... More

We stopped for dinner on a night when we were seafooded-out. We started with the mixed green salad -- good, but could have had more inspired mix of vegetables. My goulash was tasty. My husband's sausage was good, but was a bit bland (we're more used to garlicky versions.) The homemade spaetzel and veges were good. I love red cabbage,... More

On our recent trip to Nova Scotia, we stayed quite near to Sweet Secret. The host at the place we were staying spoke well of the restaurant, so we gave it a try. I happen to be a fan of middle European cooking, and Sweet Secret was a very pleasant surprise. My wife an I enjoyed the caesar salad, which... More

The Grilled Salmon was perfect, portion wise and preparation. My wife had the the Chicken Stir fry and truly enjoyed it. Top ti all off with fun conversation with the owner and the Apple Strudel
