The food in this lovely modern spot in a garden with views of the fens is awesome. A terrific chef has come up with a unique menu - south east Asian fusion with an emphasis on fresh whole foods. Fresh local produce with Asian spiciness. I had some vegan noodles (quite a few vegan choices at lunch and dinner) with the seafood soup as an appetiser. The soup featured local mussels, shrimp and fish in a thin and spicy tomato soup which was delicious. The vegetable fish was full of fresh, tasty vegetables. I only wished we were longer in Charlottetown so we could visit again. Service was not that fast and the wait staff were so busy we were left waiting both to get a seat (several tables were clearly free but they were too busy to seat us or even greet us) and take our order. They need more staff at busy times.

Best seafood chowder on the island (and I tried most of them). Very good menu, great service in a wonderful setting and atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Dunes.

I finally stopped at the Dunes Gallery. And it is certainly worth a stop, or perhaps many visits as there is so much to look at. There is all kinds of jewellery some from the other side of the world, and some Canadian. There are curios from Bali, Thailand, and other parts of the world, there are beautiful wood carvings, glassware, artwork, clothing, and just so much to look at. What is also wonderful is that there is actually something for every price range, even your children could find something to buy. Just beautiful beautiful items, almost like a museum, it really is worth taking a few trips to just really take it all in and enjoy it, the architecture is also pretty interesting and beautiful. **accessibility … The stairs into each gallery are quite steep I think there is a chair at the top of each one though, there may be a ramp but I did not see it. There is no place to sit down once you're in the gallery, and it is quite large and there is lots to see, so I would recommend that they put in a few benches here and there**

Wow! A place to see every type of art, amazing pieces; statues in the garden, wood carvings, pottery, paintings, furniture, jewellery, clothing, just to name a few! We spent a nice hour just browsing, the cafe was not open yet which was disappointing but will return again.
