Had to pick a restaurant for a quick late evening dinner for our daughter's birthday and could not have made a better choice. Warm atmosphere with beautiful surroundings teeming with local artwork (for sale), and wonderful, welcoming service. Food was absolutely incredible and portions were...huge! My daughter was so tired she didn't want an entrée so ordered the mussels and the lobster bisque instead...she ended up with a literal mountain of delicious mussels that left us speechless! Even the fresh salad and the freshly baked bread was awesome! Our group couldn't pass up the opportunity to have the in-house fresh pasta and it did not disappoint! Between the puttanesca, the smoked salmon fettucine and the chicken parmesan there were rave reviews. We've visited Italy a few times and this pasta hit the mark - light and delicate! We will definitely return and highly recommend! Special mention to Meaghan and all the other service staff & our compliments to the chefs!More

Both of us had pasta, my husband had the lobster pasta, he loved it. I chose the tomato pasta, it was sweet and spiced with chilli flakes, but not overpowering. We were really happy to find a 5 star restaurant in a small town, with...the best view of the Bay of Fundy.More

Came here for a sugar treat and coffee this morning. Staff members were friendly and welcoming. Lots of food choices, and fresh food. I enjoyed coming here after a walk in Fundy park.

We rented a cottage for the weekend in Alma and had supper with our friends on the Friday night. Everybody loved their pasta dish. I took the chicken pesto pasta which was delicious and my husband took a spicy pasta with sausage which was spicy...enough for him. The next day, after a short hike, my husband stopped for a coffee and my friend and I took each a piece of carrot cake... well this was a show stopper!!!! Super moist and frosting is amazing. Service was great, owner super friendly too. Can’t believe that I never stopped there before now. I will definitely go back this summer.More

My husband and I had dinner at The Octopus' Garden Cafe last evening. Pasta as usual for my husband, and I had the cod dish. Both were delicious. The waitress considerate and helpful. A wonderful experience. Thank you. Ruth and Richard Toth

Quaint restaurant in beautiful Alma New Brunswick, the gateway to Fundy National Park. My husband and I ordered the asian noodle options on the lunch menu and we were definitely not disappointed. There was quite a nice kick to one of the options and the...flavour in both menu options, along with the fresh veggies were delightful! Great service with a smile and the restaurant meets the Covid 19 guidelines! Definitely a go-again! 😀More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was imaginative and delicious, and the location was beautiful (especially dining outdoors on the back deck). My only complaint was our wait staff did not wear a mask or give us at least six feet when taking our...order or serving us on the back deck. I consider this an unforgivable example of failure to be considerate of the patron.More

Popped in at lunch time as we were in the area. We ordered the potato curry soup ( really good ) and a few sandwiches, chicken pesto on baguette and BLT. I'd drive in to eat that soup again! Service was quick but we weren't...rushed when the food arrived. Great selection of beers.More
