The food is good and the staff is really nice. Sometimes there can be a bit of a wait for the food (there's only one cook working most of the time and they can be busy at times) but I think it's worth it. They...More

Not many viable choices for meals in Holyrood -- other than the excellent Tea Garden -- but this place was surprisingly good. Good salads, good mussels, good chicken parm -- and they comped our salads because we had to wait a few extra minutes because...More

The place looks attractive from the road but we were hesitant to go in as there hadn't been any cars in front for the 2 days we'd been in Holyrood. Should have listened to our hesitation. The lady working there was very pleasant but the...More

We were so disappointed in this place. After a lovely time at the Salmonier Nature park, we (12 people including kids) wanted to go for lunch. The place across the street was recommended to us (The Station Diner), but it was very busy and having...More

Our experience in this restaurant was just awful! The tables and high chairs looked like they hadn't been cleaned in ages - we had to wipe them down ourselves. The batter on the fish was soaking wet on the bottom - disgusting!! The coffee was...More

For the amount (and quality) of food you get, it is far too overpriced. Ordered the soup of the day which was listed at $7, but they ended up charging $14, and argued that the listed soup was the "side soup". So we had to...More

Since the mid 1800’s, The Beach Cottage has been a familiar Holyrood landmark.Initially the building was designed as a hotel, and later got its current name in the mid 1920’s.It was the place for an afternoon outing, or a weekend in the country, accessible by vehicle or train. It was also a destination for vacationers and newlyweds.The neighborhood has changed. The Beach Cottage Restaurant has reopened to offer its patrons home cooked meals in a relaxed and comfortable setting in the style of 1866. The kettle’s on!We cater to private parties of 100 persons, or smaller groups in one or both of our dining rooms.
