This restaurant is a very good deal for Atlantic Canada. It is very reasonable, as the most expensive dishes were around $15 and are enough for most adult diners. The servings are big enough for hungry diners and the dishes include quality ingredients. The Seafood...More

Once again I relied on Trip advisor for tonight's dinner choice, and I was not disappointed! A bit out of the way, but worth the trip. Our waiter, Paul, was helpful in making our selections, which was not easy. The entire menu looked great and...More

If you are within 30 miles, this is the place. We were two couples without reservations arriving an hour before they closed. They were busy, the staff got to us quickly, welcomed us, and throughout the meal treated us exceptionally well. Gerard was our server,...More

Definitely one of the best places to eat in Sydney. The food is always good and reasonably priced, and the staff is always nice or amazingly funny!
