The view out the window of the sea and the sunset was a lovely setting for this fine dining experience. We wanted a typical Acadian meal and used the friendly waitress's knowledge of the menu to order our food. We started off with one serve of the mussels. So fresh, such a generous quantity that is was enough for two, cooked just right with a delicious sauce. It was possible at the main meal to sample a cross selection of the menu, all of which we enjoyed. What made this meal different and memorable was that here was healthy cuisine in a restaurant with inexpensive prices. Fresh produce not drowned out with dressing, seasonal vegetables and lean meat. We shared a dessert- again this was delicious---with just the right amount of sweetness and a good finish to our meal. The meal was capped off with service with a smile - one of our best dining experiences in Canada.

We wanted to try some real Acadian food so we decided to try this restaurant. The ladies are all dressed in traditional costume and are very welcoming and friendly. 2 of us had the meat pie with the salad, (the salad dressing is home made) and the other 2 tried the Evangeline sampler which had a fish cake, a small slice of the pie and beans. The beans were ok, not a lot of flavor, but the fish cake and the pie were nice. We did not try any desert. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the friendliness of the server.

Good selection of food supplies if you are in the area and want some snacks, or something to cook. Service was quick and helpful.

We tried the Acadian meat pie which was a mixture of shredded chicken and pork In a tasty crust. It came with salad, bread, molasses and molasses butter for the bread. For dessert we tried the butterscotch pie which had meringue on top and was just as delicious as it sounds. The restaurant is bright, clean and the servers are dressed in traditional costumes. They speak French and English.

Canadian prices are above ours in Maine, but for a "local" bargain, shop @ the Co-Op. The personnel was helpful and friendly. Store was clean and well stocked.
