“Sweet Secret is a lovely European traditional restaurant.”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

This hidden treasure is unlike any other local spot where we've eaten. The decor inside is very European with layers of lace curtains, a grotto and little strings of lights.
Service is attentive and prompt.
The menu is probably Croatian with schnitzel, red cabbaage and spaetzle (not sure about spelling!) as well as more common Canadian dishes.
We all ordered the Croatian mains and were very pleased-well cooked & seasoned and most enjoyable.
Strudel and black forest cake for dessert also didn't disappoint.
We would recommend it and plan to return-a quiet little spot with a lovely, welcoming atmosphere.

“Fantastic European Cuisine in SW Nova Scotia”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Emphasis on veal dishes - Wiener Schnichel etc. Spatzle is delicate and plentiful, with attentive service.

Restaurant is obviously a family run enterprise with impeccable cuisine and excellent service.

Ideal for all occasions.

“Excellent Food....Great Prices”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

This restaurant is owned a couple from Croatia, and we had a very good meal here. Service was fast and efficient by the owner who we had a visit with, but was not imposing. We ate dinner at 8ish, and they close at 9 at this time of year. The restaurant is clean, but simple...typical small town feel to it, not a lot of tables. I don't remember what we ate, as we were on the road for 2 weeks, but know that it was good and very reasonably priced...would recommend.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Lovely little restaurant located in Granville Ferry. I went with my husband and the waiter was very friendly and mentioned that the Rahm Schnitzel was a best seller. We both ordered it and it was so delicious. The restaurant was also unbelievably clean. And the decoration were really cute and we sat right next to a pretty little water fountain. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

“AS SWEET AS IT GETS”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Here is a sleeper, it should not be a secret anymore. Tasteful both in decor and food with warmth added from the owners fine efforts at construction of furniture items and colourful Croatian themes.
