I've had coffee here a few times, but didn't realize it was a full-blown restaurant! It was packed lunchtime, and everyone wants a window seat. Lovely view on a sunny winter day! The service was prompt, and the food was spectacular! I had the spinach pie (vegetarian) and sticky pudding for dessert - scrumptious! Can't wait to go back there.

Stopped by without a reservation and had to wait a few minutes as the place was packed on a warm sunny day. Once seated our food came out quick and it was very good. I had the roasted chicken sandwich on a foccacia bun which was really fresh and tasty; my wife had the seared shrimp salad which she thought was fantastic. On to the view... you cannot pick a more scenic setting than looking out The Narrows while having lunch. Once you're finished you can go check out the amazing exhibits offered at the archives/museum or cross the street and check out the Basilica.

Came here for a cup of tea while visiting the rooms. We also had a cup of tomato soup with popcorn. Service was good - and views amazing


How can anybody be even permitted to review a restaurant on a tea and cup of tomato soup with popcorn???????

They should have gone up the street to the deli at Sobey's.

Unlike these folks, we had a full meal. Salad was perfect, so large we decided to split it. We both opted for the fish dish of the evening which was cooked to perfection, not 30 seconds beyond done.

I kept thinking how could this be better? No idea.

Whether you live in town but specially if you are visiting, this is a must. The food is great, the atmosphere is quite nice and the view from the balcony is like no other. Even it is just for a coffee and a cheesecake on a sunny afternoon, it's certainly recommended.
