We had the usual suspects: - fish bites (great, little bit spicy haddock) - lamb burger - one of the best burgers in the world - absolutely amazing - red beer and blueberry beer And great service. The interior is also very welcoming.

I always tend to have a meal at the Old Triangle when I am in Halifax- the food is good and the ambiance is welcoming. After seeing a play at the Neptune Theatre this is a good place to spend some time.
