Was here with husband and relatives. We had reserved a table by window but when we arrived, we were taken to a booth inside, no way near a window, and when asked why we were told they were busy and had to sit us elsewhere....More

My wife and I and been traveling for several hours. We checked into our hotel, and the receptionist recommended this place. It was rather hard for us to find as our GPS wasn't working well. Service and food were all good.

Superb lunch stop passing thru to the Maritimes. Looked up places to dine and chose L'estaminet because of menu variety and beer selection. I had the tokinese (sp?) i.e. Chicken noodle bowl in a delish rich broth. My partner chose the lamb burger with arugula...More

Great location in town! Nice views of the street from wondow or patio. Nice but casual atmosphere. No need to dress up but don't look like a slob either. I felt the atmosphere a little intimidating for families at the door (since you wait beside...More
