There are not a lot of great choices for a nice dinner in Antigonish,but this place is fantastic and would stand up against any top restaurant in any city. We ate here twice for dinner. They have a great wine list and interesting and varied menu. The meals are good sized but not so large as to be wasteful. The... More

This place is touted as a fine dining establishment but my wife and I stopped going there because we found it much too pretentious. It is not a place where ordinary people will go on a regular basis because it is too expensive.

We had the duck Pate' and seafood Vindaloo, onion soup and smoked salmon! A fair bit of curry on the menu for some reason! Prices are fairly high and the food is just average!

Tonight's dinner for our group, was specially prepared by Chef Mark. His choices were sensory to the palette, each of them. Our group couldn't believe the service and attention they received and how delectable the whole menu for the evening was. Thank you Chef Mark, Karen, Sylvan and all the staff . Our guests will leave Antigonish with wonderful memories... More

We were two couples for lunch. Fish chowder was the tastiest we've had during our visit to Nova Scotia. Lobster and crab croissant sandwich also was exceptional. Good wine selection. Service was prompt and friendly even though the restaurant was busy

Went here with my Husband for our wedding anniversary and the gentleman that waited on us was less than a cordial fellow. The snide comments made myself and my partner shocked coming from one of the upscale restaurants in town. Would not recommend this restaurant to ANY younger couples (late 20s early 30s). Will not be returning.

We ended up at Gabieau's after looking for the Townhouse Brewpub which was closed until 4. The meter near Townhouse took our CAD, but gave us no time. Parking was free behind the Post Office just across from Gabrieau's. My Cobb Salad was a masterpiece and my husband enjoyed his Ruben. This is one of our favorite stops when heading... More

A surprisingly creative menu one would more likely find in a big or trendy City then where it is. I enjoyed my special pasta of the day while my spouse disliked the salad she ordered. She did agree that her expectations might have not matched the description of the salad on the menu. But overall there is enough for all... More

This restaurant is a little out of character for this college town. Gourmet food, as well as sushi, combined with an impressive wine list. Prices are a little on the high side but reasonable. My guess is that they aren't targeting the student population in town.
