We learned about the Fleur de Sel as we embarked on a huge road trip through the Canadian Maritimes and immediately made a reservation for our time in Lunenburg. The Fleur de Sel is a 5 star French restaurant serving innovative dishes with local ingredients housed in a cozy house near the water front. We found the food to be... More

Words cannot begin to show how the staff food and decor was it was outstanding.the ambience was relaxing and the music was beautifully done with our meal.

Don't go to this elegant little establishment if you are in a hurry, because each course is explained with pride and then is so artistically presented that you will want a moment to admire it before you savour the flavour. Lulled by the peaceful atmosphere, you are hardly aware of the passage of time allowed between courses. There are reasons... More

Amazing attentive service, and intimate atmosphere with small tables, candles, etc. Very cozy and even the music was great. Great food and amazing dessert. Amuse bouche were a bit weird but interesting. We started with oysters, salmon tartine (amazing), and beef tartar (okay). My hubby got the beef tenderloin with brisket (he wished there was more brisket on the plate... More

Dinned here in September with a work group. The service was excellent as were the meals. The vegetarian option is nominated by the chef on the day which keeps it interesting. Lovely ambience and our waitress was wonderful.

Recently went with a friend to enjoy their 7 course sampler menu. For 3 hours we were presented with amazing and different dishes, some part of the menu and some a complete surprise. Every dish was exquisitely presented and delicious, though a few were a bit over seasoned with salt. Over all a fun dining experience that I would definitely... More

This restaurant was highly rated and we were looking forward to a great experience. We were totally disappointed. The service was outstanding, but that was the end of it. I look for taste sensations and presentation, but both were sadly lacking. The food was heavy and the presentation was nothing special. We had the tasting menu, and there was not... More

Highly regarded restaurant with great service and lovely atmosphere. I have to admit I was completely unimpressed by the amuse bouche. I ordered the toro sashimi which was very good but did not need all the sauce on it - it overpowered the starter and took away from the sashimi itself which is supposed to be the star of the...
