Get in your car and drive to Annapolis Royal. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Go directly to Restaurant Compose. Fabulous food, superb view, great service. It doesn't get much better than this. We can vouch for the Digby scallops, the pan fried haddock as well as the apple strudel and an absolutely divine German styled vanilla almond cake.

This place is so much better than most places in NS. The food is properly cooked served hot and seasoned correctly.

The service is good and people are friendly.

We were recommended a few restaurants in Annapolis by our B&B owner and we were so happy with our first meal in Compose that we decided to come back the 2nd evening, rather than trying another restaurant. The restaurant is not very large, this makes it very charming and it has great water view! The staff is very friendly, the menu offers some Austrian dishes but also seafood and they serve both Austrian and Canadian wines. We dont know where to start when telling about the quality of the food and wines! All portions are very generous, we really didnt have room left for the dessert the first evening. Still in doubt which starter we liked best, the french onion soup or the seafood chowder. And the scallops were just perfect and so tasteful!!!! But so was the schnitzel and the spaetzle and the second evening we even managed to share the yummie apfel strudel. Both Austrian and Canadian wines are very good. We would recommend everyone to go to this wonderful place, we would definitely come back when we are in Annapolis!

We ate here at the recommendation of the hosts at the bed and breakfast where we stayed. Great choice. My husband feasted on scallops and I being a vegetarian had a wonderful large salad. We highly recommend.

Was told about this place by a co-worker. Being from out of town, I happened to be in the area over the weekend and decided to check it out and we were not disappointed. My husband, who is not as adventurous as I am when it comes to checking out new places was extremely pleased with his dinner. I must say this was the best spaetezle I've EVER had! Quality of the meal was spot on, even down to the delicous vegetables. And the service was awesome! Cannot wait to be back in the area and make another visit!
