Went here for dinner the night before a hospital procedure. We had no reservation, but got right in and got a window seat. Pierre was our waiter. What a super guy! He was very accommodating and very pleasant. The crab cake was delish. The clam chowder was one of the best I've had. We split a lobster dinner. The lobster... More

Pretty solid spot in a big tourist area. I am always hesitant to go for pricier restaurants in that sort of area but this one did not disappoint! The view is really nice of the harbor but I wouldn't say by any means that it is life changing if you can't sit right by the window, but it is worth... More

We received a 20% off coupon after booking the hop on/hop off bus (great way to see the city!) so we figured we'd make use of it for lunch. Fantastic food! We arrived close to 1 pm and were told we'd have a 20 minute wait, but we were given a window seat in less than 10 minutes. The complimentary... More

My wife and had dinner here on a Thursday evening. We only had to wait 20 min, which is expected at a place as good as this. I'm in a wheelchair and the staff were great at finding a table I could use. I had the mixed fish and my wife had the swordfish and both were excellent. The meal... More

.......but worth it. Great view to the harbour. Nice cocktails, great local produce, prepared with care and skill. Good menu choices from a crab sandwich to whole lobster. Would re-visit.

Very busy place and only had to wait 10 mins to enter. Good ambience. Starter for me did not arrive no explanation. Food promised much but was only ok. Steak good, surf and turf ok but not worth $58 , fried fish platter ok but not much taste. The 2nd fruit drink for my wife had to be returned as... More

We dined here in August for dinner. My husband is allergic to seafood,so he got a burger. I got salmon. The food was just ok. Our waiter was an older man who forgot our appetizer. He just looked overwhelmed.

My wife and I visited Fog Habour restaurant last week; what a delight. From outside the building does not look anything special; certainly not a 250 seater restaurant. The place may be full but join the waiting list and get your table in 20 to 30 minutes. You are not in a line, just leave your mobile number and they... More

It took us quite some time to locate this place as we were not sure of its name or location. But eventually we did find it. Our effort was well rewarded. Needed to wait quite a while for a table but could list our names and spend the interim time usefully elsewhere. The food was very good. Prawn cocktail was... More
