We were looking for a place for some warm food after taking a walk around Halifax harbor. Very attractive place right on the boardwalk. Service was very good, food was great. We were there at about 2pm so the restaurant was not busy at all....More

Beautiful restaurant, love the atmosphere and lighting. The service was impeccable however, the menu itself is overpriced for what you get.

Great place to eat, celebrate or conduct business. Our server was Clair and she was fantastic. We had the terrific muscles and calamari. The spaghetti and cheese filled meatballs were also terrific. I would most definitely dine here again. Coat check room is available.

Check out their website online, or give them a call. But, I do not think they have this dish on their regular menu.

We paid less than $100 canadian for an appetizer of calamari, and two mains which were on the higher end of the menu with a white sangria, a beer and desert. Well worth every penny!
