The food is innovative, fresh and extremely well prepared and presented. Just about everything on the menu appealed to me, including seafood crepes filled with scallops, shrimp, haddock and mushrooms and chicken camembert with asparagus, garlic and a white wine herb sauce. Unfortunately I just couldn’t get past the appetizer menu. There were so many temptations that instead of a main entree, I chose a couple of appetizers. First was a mango and spinach salad with a buttermilk dressing. It was a big salad, loaded with sweet mango pieces and baby spinach leaves. My next appetizer was baked eggplant with pancetta, goat cheese and tomato sauce. The combination of smoky pancetta, mild goat cheese and tangy tomato sauce had my taste buds working overtime. My sister’s meal was equally delicious. She had pork tenderloin with a mushroom demi glace sauce. It was accompanied by whipped garlic potatoes and a
vegetable medley of beans, brussel sprouts, carrots and cauliflower that was steamed to perfection.
For dessert we shared a lemon mousse that was almost too pretty to eat.
It was surrounded by raspberry sauce with small cream hearts piped along the edge.
Kathleen was our server and she was extremely friendly and attentive.
The restaurant is open from Tuesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. Entrees range in price from $15-25. Reservations aren’t accepted for lunch which starts at 11:30. Dinner reservations are a must.
If the food isn’t enough to tempt you to stop, there is also a gift store in the front of the restaurant. There is a wide assortment of Nova Scotian made pottery, jewelry and art. It’s very attractively displayed and prices are reasonable considering the quality of the merchandise.
