“Don't be in a hurry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Relax, enjoy the pace. Great food...limited menu but everything is wonderful no matter what you pick. Small facility so make a reservation. Enjoy and make a memory.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Tucked away on a little street in Wolfeville, Nova Scotia is a real eating treasure. The food and the service were top notch! The menu was interesting and the wine list serviceable. This is local food at its best! Don't miss it!

Great ambiance, food and service and nice and relaxed, you are not hurried, because they tend to always have a crowd eager to eat there.

I like the intimate atmosphere and the frine food presentations. On the most recent visit, the restaurant was not crowded and our meal was served promptle and presented beautifully with fresh edible flowers as decoration.

“Unfriendly hostess, good service, okay food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Arrived on time for our reservation and introduced ourselves - hostess abruptly asked what time was our reservation and sat us - not friendly and so unlike an East Coaster. Things turned for the better as our server was lovely. She noticed that we gave our friend a birthday card during our aperitifs, and without prompting brought a desert with candle at no charge for him. Unfortunately, the food didn't meet expectation. The menu was limited and nothing to inspiring. The best dish of the night was the smoked haddock and chorizo chowder. Hopefully the new owner - who has a great resume of top-notch Ottawa restaurants, will bring Tempest back to glory.
