Food and service both superb. Lobster thermidor, local mussels in tomato sauce, panko-crusted scallops and eggplant with cheese. Each better than the next. We sat outside and enjoyed the view and prompt service. An excellent evening.

We went here without a reservation and we're seated immediately even though they were packed. Food was delicious and reasonable priced for what they were serving. Wait staff was fantastic and fast. We will go back next time we are in Halifax.

Recently visited with a party of eight. Most meals were well received, except the corn seafood chowder which was somewhat lacking in taste. The large menu was certainly not a gourmet experience but better than most chain restaurants. However, the noise level in the main...More

We paid less than $100 canadian for an appetizer of calamari, and two mains which were on the higher end of the menu with a white sangria, a beer and desert. Well worth every penny!
