The food was amazing and the service was even better. I love the attention that the servers give you here, they are truly professionals. This place is a little pricy but worth every penny. I have the mussel bar for appetizer and the swordfish. The swordfish was cooked perfectly and the vegetables were nice and crunchy. I didn't have room or dessert.

This was a pricey but fantastic restaurant in Halifax. The mussels in white wine sauce are brilliant. The scallops stuffed with lobster are absolutely delicious. When I think of Halifax food, this is what I think of. 4/5, knocked off one because of unclear reason for the higher price point

Excellent service, very good quality food, but too rich and buttery for me. too much to the french. Had lobster stuffed scallops, very fresh and tasty but too much sauce. Salad bar not g reat. Just depends on what you are looking for. Good marks over all.

The Five Fishermen is a bit pricey but well worth it. The lobster stuffed scallops were the best. The mussel bar is a bonus.
