We dined two evenings at Panorama, both of which were consistent in their respective presentation, preparation and service. Well done! Fish and seafood were properly cooked (not-overcooked) and well-balanced. Wine list is broad enough to satisfy. Views at sunset are stunning!

I booked this place for a birthday dinner, and they dropped ball in terms of service, portion size, and ambiance. For gourmet? That's three strikes away from a Michelin star. This was a low rent and disappointing experience. The starter salads were shamefully small and...More

Had a wonderful dinner here ... the scallops and pork belly were excellent. The views are great and the service is good. However, the prices are very high (the same as I pay in Hawksworth in Vancouver) but the meal didn't justify the price. I...More

Dinner here one night. For a spot in a remote location in Nova Scotia, very satisfying. Located on the second floor overlooking the Atlantic- gorgeous. Prompt, efficient service. Seafood chowder, salmon, rack of lamb- all outstanding. Pricey- but to be expected. Exceeded expectations.More
