This spot has always been my favourite upscale dining spot in Nova Scoria, easily. The service is outstanding. The atmosphere is simple which makes the focus on the meal easy and doesn’t distract from it. The food has consistent high standard and quality. The wine...More

Fleur de Sel has been one of our favourite restaurants not just in Lunenburg, but anywhere along Nova Scotia's South Shore, for many years. Consistently exceptional local fare elevated to the next level and well worth the splurge. Beautiful setting in one of Lunenburg's UNESCO...More
