We have given five points for the excellent service. The food was really good, extra points for the delicious nachos. The beverages were a mix-match: lemonade was great, biers and ice tea were so-so.

The fish cakes with beet side salad were superb. Every ingredient was fresh and locally sourced. This is a place where you are welcomed and feel comfortable in the charming space. Kyle, the owner’s son was very helpful and a wonderful conversationalist. It is worth...More

Stopped in for a late lunch. The restaurant has a very inviting, warm, pub-like interior and the service is both friendly and professional. We both opted for the seafood chowder, which was "non-traditional" in a very good way. Lots of seafood, coupled with sweet potatoes...More

The setting, overlooking Halifax and the harbour, right by the Dartmoth ferry slip, is beautiful. The service was very friendly. Our server took her time to talk with us and served our food efficiently. The butternut squash soup was delicious--probably on of my best soups...More

So, we needed an afternoon break while travelling in Halifax; there was a lot of construction at the ferry terminal. We got lost but persevered. Lovely find! positive vibe, good harbour/ferry terminal view, congenial server, grand wine selection and excellent bruschetta. All good.

The place feels warm and cosy. The food was pretty good. We had the lamb burger and the pulled pork beef burger. They come with a side of "roasties," which are oven roasted potatoes in the shape of fries. The latter is a great idea,...More

Reasonably priced and good food. Service good but quite quiet (Sunday lunchtime). Chorizo / goat cheese pasta was great. Vegetarian friend enjoyed the chickpea salad.

Walked here from our hotel and had lunch. Didn't know what to expect, but the quality and variety of the food was excellent. Waitress even let us have a tasting to select beer, as we were not familiar with the local brews. Went back for...More

Hi there, We normally only take reservations for 6 and over. We have four reservations already at 530pm. If you were to arrive at 515pm you wouldn't have a problem getting a seat. Your order would get in ahead of the other... More
