We visit Fresh a few times each year and have never been disappointed. Sarah provides a very welcoming and comforting setting maintaining attention to detail second to none. The menu offers a varied selection of taste satisfying creations.

What a fabulous dining experience in New Brunswick, Canada! Sarah and her culinary team have created both an atmosphere (in this former CPR train car) and menu that treats one’s senses and taste buds to a memorable adventure. And, it is reasonably priced for what...you are getting! Could not ask for more! 5 out of 5 stars!More

Situated in a rail car a fine dining experience. Well paced service and imaginative presentation. Don't rush and plan on the evening event.

We had a great dinner in an intimate space on a beautifully converted railway sleeper car. This is the kind of meal that spans several courses over two to three hours, best enjoyed with a bottle of wine to sip on between courses. The food...is imaginative and very well executed, the service (entirely by the owner) in great, and the wine list is well-chosen. You’ll never find a more interesting venue for a romantic evening.More

A last minute reservation for us lead to an amazing dinner in a renovated rail car. Both had the chef's selection: seared tuna for me and mussels & clams in a bacon broth for hubby. Felt like we were dining in an upscale, large city...restaurant. Nice wine list. For a Wednesday evening, we were fortunate to get a reservation. Thank you Sara!More

The railway car is nicely decorated while keeping up some of the original look. This is a tiny restaurant with up to 26 places - reserve ahead! Mis en bouche was some pea purée with ricotta. There was some tasty bread with flavored butter to...wait for the entrée. Entrée was digby scallops with a pea purée and some fresh peas and asparagus bits. The scallops were as perfectly cooked as they can be. The peas and asparagus were al dente as they should be - very tasty and fresh. The purée was an unusual but oddly compatible accompaniment. There were some wild harvested mushrooms- quite tiny - they added decoration but not much taste or texture. A small raspberry sherbet was served in between courses. The main course was halibut, accompanied by asparagus, small patatoes and a green baby salad mix. Again the highlight was the halibut, tender, cooked to perfection, moist and tasty. The sauce was light but did not need to be more tasty because the fish was so well prepared. The asparagus and potatoes (a must in this locale, the potatoe capital!) were again cooked lightly and to a perfection. Taste of all ingredients were really great - NO cheating with heavy sauces to hide less than perfect ingredients or cooking. The greens were a nice accent to balance the cooked ingredients. I would have added a really light balsamic vinaigrette- just a touch to make the salad more accented. True to its name: Fresh! The small place and the paced service allows for perfection in cooking - a rarer and unappreciated luxury. Dessert: chocolate trio with chocolate penna cotta, hand made truffles, german spiced chocolate cake and chocolate dust. The penna cotta and truffles were heavenly and the highlights of that dessert. The chocolate cake was tasty but not to par with the other items. Chose a glass of argentinian trapiche to start and the owner suggested a chilean white wine « the devil’s collection » as a wine for the main course. Both were excellent with a special mention for the chilean wine which tasted above its price. The service is handled by the owner, very competent, friendly and knowledgeable. This is meant to be a slow food dinner so don’t expect to be rushed and don’t expect a « feed and go» experience. Sit back, take your time and enjoy!More

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. The restaurant is in a restored 1930s rail car. It is simply fabulous food on an elegant little train that goes nowhere. The decor is authentic, comfortable and offers privacy while you dine. The...food is varied and always fresh so the menu is changing every few weeks. I had an appetizer of grilled beef medallions on halloumi, It was melt in your mouth delicious. My main course was Seared Scallops, roasted baby potatoes with Brussel Sprouts in pastry. Yum! Dessert was Chocolate Lovers Plates- Chocolate Ice Cream, baked Chocolate Cheesecake and Chocolate Ganache with fresh strawberries and chocolate drizzle.More

There is a reason for the superb ratings this restaurant regularly receives- all deserved. This is one of the best restaurants in Atlantic Canada. Service is benchmark of excellence. It is a small and intimate evening, and it will take time- there is no rushed...food at this truly fine dining establishment. Book early.More

We were together for a little family time and wanted to experience some good local cuisine but the choices are not endless in rural NB. The food here is very well prepared, presented, and properly served. You start out with a small amuse bouche, some...hot bread, followed by an appetizer, then a pallet cleanser and finally your main dish. But don’t stop there - dessert is delicious. I had French onion soup, the scrimp and scallop plate and then the cinnamon apple dessert. I have to say my tastebuds were well amused and yearned for more. A very pleasant evening with an excellent host - top notch all around package. Thx Sara and Jeff.More

In planning our trip to the East Coast , including Newfoundland, I decided to stop halfway between Quebec City and Halifax...which is about 5 hours. After deciding on Florenceville-Bristol, and getting accomodation, I started checking out what was in the area and a place for...dinner. Not expecting much, I was delighted by two finds: The Longest Covered Bridge was not far away , but an incredible ( according to the reviews) restaurant was down the street from our accomodations. I quickly made a reservation for dinner .....in a train car. And I can say everything about our experience was a delight. From our welcome, to the atmosphere, to the service, and especially to the food and wine. Absolutely incredible. Can't remember what we ate, but doesn't matter...trust me...everything was wonderful . Don't miss this treat!More
