We only samples desserts one evening but all of them were delicious. The atmosphere inside the small cafe is very charming and there is a tiny outdoor seating area. The entrees smelled heavenly but we had already eaten in another town and didn't have a chance to have a full meal. From the smiles on all the diners' faces, probably yummy.

Be sure to Make a Reservation. This is another quaint Lunenburg specialty..... but they only serve a couple of different meals a day... .and everyday is different. Small place, not fancy.... but great food!

We were here about 12 years ago. The restaurant still has the same owner. The food is fresh and tasty. It is a small place and the cubicles are a bit awkward to get in. All 4 of us enjoyed the food. The fishcakes are made with haddock and potatoes i.s.o. of the usual salted cod and potatoes. (the fishcakes could have had a bit more flavor) Overall we really enjoyed the food.

Dined with eight ppl earlier this week. The staff is generally very pleasant and accommodating. Restaurant itself is small and we were at a corner bench probably more suited for six ppl.

Catch of the day (haddock fresh off the boat) was the winning dish enjoyed by a couple of us. Everything else was just okay - including the lobster linguine which is the house specialty. Sauce was too plentiful and very overpowering.

Prices also a touch much, but not completely unreasonable. Five dollars for a small fresh lemonade is a bit crazy.

Came heavily recommended which probably is part of my small disappointment.

Everything is great and the key lime pie is to die for! The place is tiny, so choosing an off night or time will help insure you don't have to wait too long.
