“Outstanding restaurant -- worth going out of your way to visit!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Delicious food, fresh and carefully prepared, and served by prompt and friendly people. The ambiance is cozy and lovely, striking the perfect balance between casual and elegant. The fresh baked caraway rolls with a warm dipping sauce were served as soon as we sat down. We enjoyed the local Jost wine with our meal. We loved the dinner so much that we came back for lunch the next day -- which was equally delicious. The herbs and veggies come right from the garden, and added color and flavor to each dish. We really loved the Jerusalem Artichoke soup and the celeriac puree that accompanied our broiled scallops.

You might never expect such a fine restaurant in such a remote and beautiful place. I hope to visit the area and eat here again some day!

“Awesome yet again!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We drove down to this lovely part of the Maritimes tonight to experience yet again a wonderful jewel of a restaurant. We have had the good fortune to have experienced many wonderful restaurants in the world, but are really blessed to have one of the best so close by. Everything is freshly made and incorporates many local ingredients. The starter pasta with local clams, chorizo and cherry tomatoes was divine and the main course of local scallops with crispy prosciutto and pureed celeriac was wonderfully prepared. The dessert of poached pear and chocolate mousse was better than any I have experienced.

We were also fortunate to have the front window seat and experienced a colorful sunset over the Bay of Fundy.

“It's as good as reviewed”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We stopped here based on TripAdvisor reviews and it didn't disappoint.

They had quite a group of Motorcyclists visiting and service was a little slow but the food was outstanding. The restaurant is a converted house and there is memorabilia everywhere. Brought back a lot of fond memories of growing up.

Good parking on sides and back.

If you're planning to visit Advocate Harbour plan to eat at the Wild Caraway. If you're not planning to visit this area, change your plans!

After hearing many great things about this restaurant and the area, we decided to take a few day vacation in Advocate and have our meals at Wild Caraway.

Wild Caraway exceeded our expectations! The food was fabulous, presented beautifully, locally sourced as possible, atmosphere was terrific and the service was attentive and charming!

“Wild Caraway doesn't disappoint !”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The parsnip soup with That Dutchman's "Dragons Breath Blue" cheese was delicious and beautifully presented. The scallops with green tomato purée and chutney were perfectly prepared.
Setting at table and being able to see the pier where the scallops were landed makes this a very special place. Wild Caraway is a world class bistro, expect fine dining and an expert staff.
We look forward to our next visit!
