Don't judge a book by it's cover, as the saying goes. Inconspicuous, and an unassuming structure, but the food here is fantastic! We have eaten here numerous times and have never been disappointed. Oh, and the flourless chocolate cake is a celebration for the taste buds! One piece is enough for two people, very rich and satisfying.

We were quickly seated, our order taken right away, the meal was served in a timely manner, and coffee was plentiful. We will return whenever we are able.

We just celebrated the New Year's Eve at the Alder Wood Bistro. They phoned and let us know that a 6 o'clock opening had become available for their four course meal at $65 each. Our B&B innkeeper highly recommended this restaurant so we jumped at the opening. When we arrived we were shown to a very small formica topped table... More

We had made reservations at another restaurant which wasn't for us, so we just walked in to Alder Wood Bistro without a reservation. Lucky for us they could seat us at a lovely booth. The food, service and ambiance were all wonderful There was a talented musician... More

This small restaurant is exceptional. The ingredients are top quality and the food is carefully prepared. I especially love their sandwiches with their sweet potato fries and delicious aioli. Pretty much everything on the menu is great. It is a little on the spendy side but due to the outstanding quality, I think it is worth it.

This small restaurant has wonderful food. We dropped in early for dinner and had to sit out in the patio area because they were all booked up. The patio would have been wonderful, expect it was chilly. However, it was worth braving the chill to taste their food. We ordered meatloaf and planked salmon. Those sound mundane, but the way...

Locally sourced with fine dining flair. Always have an enjoyable meal at Alder Wood. The place is small so make a reservation or be willing to wait during peak hours. Worth the wait. Enjoy!

Based on a five-star recommendation from the excellent Eden by the Sea B&B a few miles away, we made arrangements for patio dining on a beautiful evening, and the rewards were spectacular. The service was outstanding -- attentive and friendly. The entree that we shared required a few extra minutes of preparation, so the chef offered us a serving of... More
