Our favourite restaurant in Annapolis Royal. We are always welcomed so warmly by Amanda and staff. The smoked salmon and scallops are awesome and the chowder is amazing. We have never been disappointed dining here! Strongly recommend

We enjoyed our seafood meal in the porch overlooking the water. Very nice owner and nice service. We ended up going back a second night. Be sure to make reservations- its a small place with more European service. .

Went here for dinner one evening, very small menu with unusual choices. Dining room is very small and tables are very close to each other. They do have wine, not sure about beer but not great choice of wines either. Pleasant service.

A lovely place to enjoy a fusion of excellent Nova Scotia raw materials prepared with European flair. Choose local wines or Austrian specialities. A highlight of my visit to Annapolis Royal.

The meal we enjoyed here was as good as advertised. A great setting by the water and the food was outstanding. There were four people in our party and everyone was pleased with their dinner and would highly recommend this restaurant to friends.
