“Better Then Homemade!!!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had the pleasure of having lunch on a busy Thursday afternoon. I ordered Breaded panfried haddock with a spinach salad and my had a steak wrap with garden salad. Our meals were excellent the staff treated us great made us feel at home!! Portions were large and made to order. Price was average but food was excellent best haddock I have ever had! The desserts all looked amazing and the maple salad dressing is as good as it gets!!

Wow, I'm blushing!!! :) Thanks so much for your kind words and we have tried so hard over the past 10 years to make our dishes not only delicious, but outstanding. The fact that you note that our dishes are "better" than home-made is a great reason to blush, and thanks so much for the validation! Our Maple Nut Salad dressing recipe is much sought after by the locals, and it might not be long before a mob with pitch forks congregate at the front of our restaurant demanding the recipe! haha (hope that doesn't really happen!) Our pan-fried haddock is always a delicious choice as well! Please stop in again soon, we look forward to serving you again!

“Great homecooked food”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The food here is not fancy but it is tasty and plentiful. Nothing is deep fried but their baked french fries are delicious. This is a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner but make sure you opt for an early dinner as they seem to close early.

We are open Monday to Saturday from 7am-7pm - and on Sunday for brunch - from 10am-2pm.... Please stop in any time during your next drive through Port Hawkesbury! We appreciate your kind words and your business!!! Cheers! ;)

Fleur-de-lis has a history of home made Acadien cooking and friendly staff. Great home made soup and fish cakes are very good.
