“Perfect start to a week at Oceanstone”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

A small group of us arrived early for our conference at Oceanstone resport so had dinner together the night before our meetings started.
Staff at Rhubarb were warm and friendly and informative.
I had the vegige Rice Wraps for starters and thought they were excellent. Can't recall my main so not sure if that is an indicator or not. Eveyone seemed to enjoy their meals.
The dessert, Rhubarb Crisp was great too.
Having local craft beer was a highlight and the Hell Bay English Ale was fantastic.
It was such a perfect location, with great food and service.
If you are in this part of the world I would thoroughly recommend dining here.

Thank you for your positive feedback. It was a pleasure to host your group while you were staying at Oceanstone Resort. The veggie rice wraps really are fantastic and paired with a Hell Bay beer, you can't go wrong. We now have Hell Bay on tap, so next time you are here, give one a try. You will not be disappointed! Thanks again!

“Beautiful view, good food.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

We ate here last night and had a very pleasant meal with great service and a spectacular view of St. Margaret's Bay. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant.
The menu was somewhat limited, but it was still the winter menu. I had the portabello burger, which was very tasty. My daughter in law had the haddock, which was a generous portion and delicious. my son had the Saturday night burger, which he enjoyed very much. They had been here before and enjoyed their meal,so they they brought me.
I would love to come again when I am back this way!

“At last - somewhere great to eat near Peggy's Cove”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Overheard some people talking about this restaurant whilst we were at Peggy's Cove so decided to call in and see for ourselves if it was as good as they said. We were not disappointed. Greeted with a warm welcome from the waitress, seated at a great table with wonderful views of the water. Menu is a little limited but the food is fresh, and very tasty. This will certainly be our first choice in future when in the area.

“Worth the trip back!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

My husband and I had a weekend away at Oceanstone Inn. We had the opportunity to dine at Rhubarb Restaurant. The food was amazing! Prepared by a chef that want the food to taste and look beautiful. Our first evening was lovely the wine was wonderful and we enjoyed the food and our waitress Maggie was a delight. Our second evening I ordered their pork tenderloin....I cannot wait to have it again! The presentation of the meal was a piece of art! My husband had the Chicken Pot Pie, he loved it! The owners are very friendly, and were quick to ask how our day was. A truly Nova Scotian experience, the food the wine, and the staff are all wonderful!
