I am looking for advice on what would be a good restaurant for a very special occaision - for about 6 people?? I want to be either in the Halifax or Dartmouth area.

Thanks

Oh there are so many fine choices !!

Could you narrow it down a tad by letting us know what type of atmosphere, cuisine, price etc that you may have in mind ??

Then there will be no shortage of suggestions,

You will get what you pay for...

for about $100 per person, you can either do DuMauritzo's, or the Press Gang

for about $75 per person, you can go to Cut, McKelvie's

for about $50 per person you could do The Vines (Dartmouth) or Il Mercato or MacAskill's (Dartmouth with a great view of Halifax)

We are kind of leaning towards Elements at the Westin since we will be staying there- what do you think of that plan-I'm waiting for the price to come- I hope it is less than $600!!!

Good morning New.

My name is Krista and I'm with Nova Scotia tourism.

HRM is jam packed with restaurants with everything from Greek to Thai to fine dining. With the most eateries per capita, it shouldn't be hard for you to find something that will tickle your taste buds.

Here's a list of just a couple that popped up in my search:

44 North (inside the Marriott Harbourfront) -1919 Upper Water St., Halifax

Bish World Cuisine - 1475 Lower Water St. (Bishops Landing), Halifax

Chives Canadian Bistro - 1537 Barrington St., Halifax

CUT Steakhouse and Urban Grill - 5120 Salter St., Halifax

da Maurizio - 1496 Lower Water St., Halifax

Press Gang - 5218 Prince St., Halifax

La Perla Dining Room - 73 Alderney Dr., Dartmouth

Nectar Social House - 62 Ochterloney St., Dartmouth

Two really helpful websites you should check out are:

www.edining.ca

www.thecoast.ca (go to food & drink section)

These will give you more selection than what I have above.

Good luck!

-Krista

Hi again "

I would venture out away from the WESTIN !

I think you will enjoy and offsite restaurant moreso, just my opinion.

Halifax has some fantastic eateries.

Stories at the Halliburton is fantastic. Intimate, elegant and the food is out of this world. Also very close to the Westin.

That's so funny because I did some poking around last night and when I saw and read about the Haliburton I knew it was the right spot and I booked it . Thanks for confirming that I made the right choice!!
