Atmosphere not the greatest but food was excellent. My wife and I ordered the poutine and cauliflower tempura for starters, poutine wasn't good at all, fries were like McCain frozen shoestring and gravy was tasteless. Cauliflower tempura was amazing though. Red curry seafood and brined chicken for our mains, both were excellent and extremely flavourful. Highly recommend this place just... More

I have to say that this just might be the best restaurant in the province let alone Saint John,NB. I have had many dishes- a rack of lamb cooked to perfection - beautiful ravioli - and their soups are gorgeous. Compared to many other restaurants local to Saint John you won't get better food at their reasonable prices.

This place has a lot of good buzz, so was really looking forward to my first visit. Coming in, I was rather surprised by the minimalist decor, which was not what I was expecting. We were quickly greeted by staff and an interesting menu. I ordered a lamb pita special. The flavours were good but the lamb was a little... More

Kyle was our waiter he defiantly warrants a shout out, fantastic server. The food presentation was as good as the food tasted - especially the... More

We absolutely loved this dish. We both ordered it. The soup of the day was chicken vegetable and it was to die for. I shared my wife's and wish I had ordered my own. Atmosphere was nice, not romantic or fancy but nice. Main dish was $31 and it had lots of seafood. Very generous portions. Absolutely delicious! We will... More

This place is exactly what most restaurants strive to be. Everything about the dining experience was great! The food did not completely blow me out of the water as one of the BEST dishes ever, but it still absolutely excellent. The service was speedy, and top notch. Our server noticed simply by one of my friend's facial expression that she... More

We found this place thru google and it was rated 5 stars and It sure is. Love the ambiance, the view on the harbor and the meals were very tasty. I was really surprised by the price of those meals. It was really affordable. I recommend this place to everyone.
