My wife and I love Trio Restaurant for the consistently great service and the quality of their food. Both are needed to make a great dining experience. Recently we had supper at Trio with my Aunt and her two daughters and one of their children. The service was remarkable, personable and warm. The manager event upgraded our child's order from...

Great service, relaxed atmosphere, good music, but over all, the food is just absolutely amazing. And if you end up coming to this great hotel restaurant, don't be suprised to hear the latest musical or theater play on the lower level. Extravaganza for everyone.

I had the seafood platter and everything tasted like it was microwaved from frozen. There's no excuse for a restaurant in Nova Scotia to serve crappy seafood. Especially one that's on the water and charging close to $30 a plate. The music was so loud I couldn't hear the server or the person I was dining with.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much Trio had changed since eating there many years ago. The photos do not do this place justice. The atmosphere during our evening meal was quite pleasant. The service was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. The staff seemed to really take pride in their work. The stuffed Mediterranean chicken supreme was delicious and plentiful... More

We were so excited to go to Trio Restaurant for a birthday supper. However it will be our last visit there. The fried halibut was dry and overcooked, like it had been microwaved. The crab cakes we could not even taste the crab. The service was just ok as we had trouble getting our meal rang through with their electronic... More

The Trio is in the Cambridge Suites hotel on the Esplanade in Sydney NS; don't be fooled that it be "just" a hotel restaurant, as it is far from that! What it lacks in ambiance it makes up for in a very good menu and the food is out of this world. Highly recommended by this traveler.

This restaurant is in the Cambridge Suites hotel. The food is really good. The service is really good. It's pretty hard to make a garden salad anymore than a garden salad, but it was possibly the best garden salad I have ever had. The crab cakes were great too. My friend had the best salad and loved it. The atmosphere... More
