Rhubard Restaurant was beyond AMAZING! We were staying at Oceanstone for a staycation/hubby's birthday and he was absolutely SPOILED! The food was some of the best we have ever eaten and the service was top notch! We will definitely be making our way to this restaurant again!

The restaurant has tasty locally-sourced food, nice staff and atmosphere. Price matched the quality of meal and the portions. The seafood chowder was to die for. One of the best meals I have had in Nova Scotia!

Another anniversary meal at Rhubarb. Excellent meal once again, outstanding service by the lovely staff. We both had the crispy haddock which was delicious. Thank you for making our evening special and the complimentary champagne.

We decided to enjoy the associated restaurant with our stay at Oceanstone. A short walk up the hill from our room. Friendly staff. Good selection. A bit pricey, but more formal and higher quality selections.Good seating.Comfortable. A nice dinner and drinks for 2 while having a romantic getaway.

We stayed at Oceanstone and made a reservation for the restaurant upon arrival. The inside is quaintly decorated and we had a nice table. Our server was attentive. A lovely warm biscuit was served before our food arrived which was very enjoyable. I had the chef's special which was pesto veggie pasta, it was delicious. My husband got the Full... More
