Quispamsis, New Brunswick
July 22, 2003
We arrived at close to 8pm on Friday evening and the place was packed. They don't take reservations, so we put our name on the waiting list and were told it would be about 25 minutes before we could be seated. We then went for a stroll along the beautiful brick lined streets instead of waiting in the restaurant with the rest of the crowd.
The restaurant's luxurious decor of gilt, velvet, and chandeliers would lead you to believe that it's an expensive place. In fact it's quite the opposite. Once we were seated and handed our menus, I was very pleasantly surprised at the prices. Most of the entree prices included a salad, bread, and spumoni ice-cream for dessert. The only extra I paid for was an Italian creme soda (which came with a souvenir glass). My total bill came to around $15. This would be a great restaurant for anyone who likes good value (the food was good and the portions very generous). It's a great spot for families due to the reasonable prices, but also perfect for a couple on a date. The only downside is the wait that you're likely to encounter due to the obvious popularity of this restaurant.
