This restaurant looks very nice, but I was disappointed with the food (although we loved staying at the owners' inn, Gillespie House, and the breakfast was wonderful).

I had the roasted vegetable salad, and all the vegetables were the same colour of purplish-red, with very little taste, and overcooked rather than roasted. The scallop/fennel appetizer tasted fine, but it included only 4 scallops for $14.00. I've eaten a lot of scallops, and that's overpriced for Nova Scotia. Another person in our party had the lasagna which was good, but the chicken, roasted potatoes and ratatouille were nothing special. We visited in late September, so maybe there's been a change in the chef?

They had a variety of ales. Liked the scallops with fennel and bacon. The Caesar salad was my first introduction to That Dutchman's cheese and we need to visit him on our next trip.

Loved this place! Went there for lunch with my dad- he had the lobster panini and I had the tacos. I used to live in Texas so to have really delicious tacos was quite the treat. The tacos were Delish! The rice and beans were equally delicious! Lobster in the panini was cooked perfectly. So happy we went here for lunch! Service was a bit on the slow side... But well worth it!

Cozy spot with a warm vibe. My Blackened Haddock was excellent and the veggie selection 10/10 though my beets could have been a little less al dente. We would not hesitate to return.

My wife and I stopped in this past weekend(Sept 11th) for lunch.
We were extremely happy with our meal, my wife got the lobster panini with rice and I got the chicken panini with a Caesar salad, plus we had a glass of wine and a cider to drink, and everything was great.
Service was very good and fast(she even brought water for our pup,as we sat outside).
Although not a huge menu, there were a number of choices, enough to make me go back again.
Everything was fresh and the paninis and rice were nice and hot.
