We had a terrific lunch at Mateus Bistro today and we had an equally wonderful lunch a couple of months ago. Excellent and friendly service as only Nova Scotians can dish out. Loved it.
On a Monday the Bistro was lively and happily nearly full with patrons enjoying a stormy day inside.
The owner/chef Matt came out for a chat and we were able to thank him for his handywork - I had the smoked chicken risotto with a crisp salad on the side, beautiful pino wine, a 10 year old Port and a chocolate confection for dessert. My husband had a beautiful fish chowder with a couple of pieces of baguette on the side and an amazing peach tart with cream - omg.
The cost is modest and the food is grassroots and elegant all at the same turn.
The Bistro is in a lovely old building that is cozy and well appointed. Mahone Bay is lucky to have such a great local restaurant serving food with such care and commitment to excellence.
You will enjoy this place. You won't have any regrets eating here. A big thank you to fine experience in the lovely Mahone Bay.
