we visited Restaurant Compose in the middle of October, as soon as we arrrived we felt like in Austria. The Food and Service were excellent. We really enjoyed our stay there, and the owner was far away from beeing rude. We will definetely be back.

Last September my husband and I decided to explore Nova Scotia's culinary diversity, as we both love what the sea has to offer. The most delightful experience we had during our trip was at Restaurant Compose. The freshness of the seafood and the flavor combination was like an explosion in your mouth - wishing it would never end. You can... More

I went with my 85 year old father who uses a walker.

I won't bother writing about the rest of that visit. This wasn't my first visit because I believe that... More

We wandered in for a late lunch just before closing. The atmosphere was bright and comfortable with a beautiful view, but the most memorable part was their French onion soup - the best we have ever had. If you see it on the menu, order it!

We stopped in for a quick bite on our way to Halifax. We were pleasantly pleased to enjoy the view and energy of the bay while eating a delicious luncheon. It was a small menu but selections superb.

We ate at Restaurant Compose twice over the summer this year - once for our Anniversary dinner and for lunch while entertaining family visiting from England. On those occasions we ate in the new attached sunroom patio. The fresh air and stunning views make the outdoor seating especially enjoyable. Last evening we tried the new feature being offered - a...

Being honest, we stopped in here tonight for dinner, for the first time. The ambiance is delightful and is a Fine restaurant. The food is from scratch, onion soup has home made beef broth, beef goulash is so tender and lean, home made breads, cordon blue is very good, even the coffee and tea is great. Presentation is high, however... More
