“Best of Sidney”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Awesome presentation and taste, not to mention the lovely decor! It was our most memorable meal in Sidney to date.
Sits right on the waterfront. Did I mention lovely desserts too!

“One of the best on the island”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

My wife and I love this place, easily our favorite restaurant in Sidney. We go here often for dinner and breakfast. Call for reservations, they can get busy, which is a testament to the food and service. If you go for breakfast the eggs benny are amazing and the French toast stuffed with brie cheese and a berry compote is incredible. The short ribs on the main are my favorite but anything is great, we've never had a bad meal here
. They also have a very reasonable priced wine list. I can't say enough about this place. Classy, great value, on the water at the Van Isle Marina, a must visit.

“Poor service”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We had reserved a table for 2 and were shown to a nice table by the window. Unfortunately, it all went downhill from there. We were not told about the specials of the day. I asked the waiter what the soup of the day was and he told me, however we heard about the specials from a neighboring table. We ordered a drink which came promptly - we were not offered any water. The food was fairly good. After we had finished yet another employee (3 different people served us) asked if we wanted any dessert - we said "maybe - could you show us the dessert menu". And after that we never were acknowledged by any member of the staff. We both tried to make eye contact with the 'third' waitress and we were totally ignored. After more than 15 minutes we got up to leave and the original waiter came over and told us that they don't have a dessert menu - they verbalize it - which, of course, the waitress did not do. The waiter said "sorry about that, we are busy and the that waitress is fairly new. Have a free dessert next time you come in". As he had never seen us before and many folk come in off their boat there, he could probably be pretty sure he wouldn't see us again.

“Beautiful views!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

The restaurant is in a very scenic waterfront harbour location. We'd previously had dinner at this restaurant in April and thought everything was great. On the return visit for lunch, I was just as happy with the food and service. The lunch menu offers many wonderful choices. Myself and my friend both decided on the Langoustine and Blue Crab Roll. It was absolutely delicious! Lunch is served with either caeser salad, artisan greens, fries or soup. This day the soup choices were either a halibut and rockfish chowder, or a green pea and ham. My friend decided on the pea soup, and thought it was very good. The restaurant was busy, and all the meals coming out looked very appetizing. Our waitress was attentive, and we never felt rushed.

“Great meal!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We had a great meal, beef ribs on fresh vegetables and risotto. We sat on the outdoor patio and soaked up the sun, enjoyed the sounds of Van Isla Marina and Philbrooks Boatyard and an amazing meal!
