On a 10 day, 35th wedding anniversary trip, this was my wife's favorite restaurant. Perfect food. Perfect decor and ambience. Everyone super-friendly (but that's true of Nova Scotia in general.) Just...perfect.

We were so pleased to dine here in this small college town! A nice surprise! We had an excellent meal of Malbec oysters, baked salmon, lamb shank and our favorite red wine. We dined on white tableclothed tables in an intimate setting. It was delightful!

Mark Gabrieau's restaurant was an accidental discovery on a trip 10 years ago. We go back whenever we can to enjoy his creations. The staff is friendly and professional and the food is outstanding.
