As a solo traveler, I can pay complete attention to details of a fine restaurant. The small space is friendly, appointed simply, and is NOT noisy. The wait staff can describe every dish in detail and make excellent recommendations, the wine list reflects the excellent judgement of the chef/owner. From appetizer to dessert, I found no fault....serving sizes are appropriate for a full course dinner that will not leave the customer uncomfortable and there are imaginative renditions of local ingredients that enhance their natural goodness. Presentations are attractive. A relaxing evening savoring every bite!

We had an excellent meal here. To start, the atmosphere is relaxed and the furniture modern, but relaxed. Service was very attentive and helpful. Even the dinnerware is made for them, which helps to accentuate the food (the only exception was the dessert plate that resembled a flying saucer and had a rim that made it difficult to reach the dessert). Our meals were both excellent. In particular, the foie gras was fixed perfectly with a goodly portion and the butter poached lobster was tender and nicely accented by the tarragon. The wine list was generous and there were selections at all price points. A lovely evening.

Fantastic dinner - we went for a la carte and every dish was excellent, from the tongue and cheek as a starter to the beef and lobster and onto rhubarb desert. Great staff, charming atmosphere, lovely airy space. Selection of wine by the glass could be expanded but good wine list and tasty cocktails. We loved our meal here and look forward to our next visit.

Chef Martin and his talented team of professionals delivered one of the very finest culinary experiences of a lifetime in Canada for My wife and I, yesterday. Speaking from an insider perspective, as a professional chef with over 30 years of Fine Dining experience, I would absolutely consider Fleur de Sel one of the top 5 restaurants operating in this country. We enjoyed their warm and hospitable service and outstanding and impeccable tasting menu and wine pairings. I would recommend Fleur de Sel to anyone of distinguished taste, with enthusiasm for gastronomical innovation and excellence. A true treasure located in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

This spot has always been my favourite upscale dining spot in Nova Scoria, easily. The service is outstanding. The atmosphere is simple which makes the focus on the meal easy and doesn’t distract from it.
The food has consistent high standard and quality. The wine pairings work, even the cocktails are some of the best I’ve had.
If you’re appreciative of good quality food and culinary techniques, this is the place to go. And don’t go with a time limit.
