“A gem of a hotel restaurant”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

My wife had pork tenderloin which is her meal of choice if available. This is a dish she cooks herself at home. I tasted the pork and we both agreed that it was the best we had every tasted (including my wife's version! Very dangerous thing for me to say!!!!!) The dish was presented extremely well and would not have looked out of place in the finest of dining establishments. I had haddock and chips which was just perfect. Again service was top notch. My only complaint........ no creme brulee! All restaurants should be made to have this desert!!! Very well worth a visit.

“Best Mother's Day Brunch in town!”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

We have attended Mother's Day brunches around the city for the last number of years but this was everyone's favorite! From Eggs Benedict to stir fried shrimps and scallops, pasta, chocolate fountain, homemade Belgian waffles, cold shrimp, crab legs, children's buffet to bread pudding with the best caramel sauce I have ever tasted, and so much more. Definitely something for everyone and kind attentive waitresses to boot. Our family of 8 will be booking early for next year!

“Cafe 101 - Top Notch!”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

This restaurant in The Holiday Inn Harborview- Dartmouth, and is a classic example of Fine Dining experience in the HRM. The ambiance is perfect for a quiet evening dinner either with your loved ones, your work colleagues, or with your friends.
Dinners are magical here!!
The food is amazing and so is the presentation. Service is quick and efficient. Definitely a place to visit for special occasions or just a night out.
