We stopped in for lunch after a museum morning, and enjoyed relaxing on the terrace on the boardwalk. Had a lovely seafood chowder with pita bread - just what was needed along with the gorgeous water views.

On a warm sunny day near the end of September we enjoyed a great lunch on the patio at Hamachi Steakhouse on the waterfront in Halifax. Everything about the experience was delightful from the excellent wait staff and delicious food served attractively to the ambiance. So much so that we took a friend with us back to the restaurant for dinner. A big mistake!
Perhaps the chef had been replaced since lunch because the food for two of the three of us was almost inedible. An appetizer of Calamari arrived which was inedible and was rejected. Both a noodle dish and a curried chicken dish consumed with delight when ordered at lunch were again ordered for dinner. The resulting entree for both dishes appeared to have been dumped on the plate with the noodle dish so oily that it was not at all appetizing and the curried chicken in a sauce that had separated. Not what you would expect from any professional chef. No one inquired how we were enjoying our meal. Perhaps just as well.

So I have heard good things about this restaurant however this was not the case. Poor service from the beginning and food was less than appealing from the presentation to the quality and taste. Took 30 minutes to have someone take our orders. Appetizers finally came with yet another "I'm sorry for taking so long" but no cutlery or our drinks we ordered over 30 minutes prior. So got the cutlery and at least water but still no drinks. Then our main courses came but... no drinks! So needless to say it is not a place to go within the beautiful city especially on the waterfront.

Had a wonderful lunch here . The food was amazing .We were in Tokyo last winter and I like the steak teriyaki here better. Perfect location on the waterfront.

we were on a cruiseship and on our way back, we saw the terrasse of this restaurant. it was kind of early for drinks but with all the umbrellas labelled ''blanche de chambly'', from our hometown, we decided to stop to have a pint. at first, we ordered it and they came back saying they have to change the barrel. few minutes later, they had problems with it and we ordered something else.. we should have left, our stella artois was not what we were looking for.
