We wanted a gluten free supper for my daughter and this was one of the few restaurants offering gf items. The food was fantastic! The couple who run the restaurant are lovely. I highly recommend this place! Try the biscuits - they're delicious.

Service was good, food excellent. We both had salmon, cooked to perfection! We enjoyed our home made dessert and after dinner drinks. We will be back!

While in New Glasgow, our daughter-in-law and son made dinner reservations here. Had been once before, for lunch. Dining space is small but workable, service was professional, maybe a little stuffy? Food was great, serving size was fine.

We had a great experience dining here. We really enjoyed having the owners, who happen to be the chefs and servers and hosts and cashiers...they do it all. We enjoyed the meals, good selection to choose from. You could tell these dishes were home made,...More

Just a nice place to go with friends, comfortable, not rushed to leave. Service was reasonable but would recommend reservations for six or more people. Often go with ten to twelve friends. Dinner is also very good and always go near Xmas. Highly recommend.

Went there with my parents on a Saturday night and each of us had a different meal. All of them were well presented, vegetables just tender, and all delicious. It appears to be a small middle of the road place from the outside, but totally...More

The food is always consistent!! They are accommodating to dietary needs, which I personally appreciate. Love the open concept, so I can see everything, including the cleanliness of the space :)

I really enjoyed our lunch there. The server was very nice and the meal was delicious! I am a big supporter of going to local businesses instead of franchises. This little bistro is a hidden gem with a downhome feel.

No. The place should be packed to the rafters as the food is always really, really yummy but it is on the Westside and as a child growing up in the outback of Pictou County (Barney's River), the Westside was always... More
