We really enjoyed a great meal at the bistro. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It is a hot spot in town as we spent a couple of hours there and it remained full the whole time.

What a wonderful surprise - terrific food, friendly service and good wine. We were passing thru on our way back from seeing the Joggins fossils and stumbled upon this little gem! And what a treat it was. The salmon and everything with it was wonderful!

Interesting wine flight- 2 oz samples of any 3 wines- a great start. The mussels prepared with beer and bacon were a delightful treat. Main course of pork loin included a very tasty sauce, with baby beets, both red and white and mashed potato.
