I was pleasantly surprised with this hidden away gem of a restaurant. You can easily miss out on this place if you don't look for it as it does not have much of a store front in this strip mall fashion. The food was perfection and they always have some interesting menu for the day above the regular menu which... More

It's definitely the nicest place to eat in Sackville. The food and service are both great. The Chef often visits the tables to check on your experience which is a nice touch.

Everything about this place was just OK. The food was a reasonable portion size but it was largely under seasoned (I had the bruschetta burger with fries). The service was painfully slow despite there hardly being anyone in the restaurant. The outside is very deceiving (it's in a little strip mall), but it is a very small place with comfortable...

server was nice, had a reservation and would recomend making one. the wait for food was long, 45 min from ordering and they said it was because they were busy, which i get... but let us know ahead of time not after waiting 35 minutes. on the plus side even though the wait was long the food was excellent.

Our family of four ordered, curry chicken and shrimp pasta, sausage rigatoni, pan fried haddock, seafood fettucine. I had the curry chicken and shrimp pasta and LOVED it. The garlic bread is different, but good. Hard to explain, more crumbly than what I'm used to, but tasty (we added cheese to ours). Service was a bit slow at first, but... More

Delicious food and friendly service both times I have been here. Burgers to die for and fresh, crisp side salad - not your basic lettuce and tomato. Garlic fries are out of this world……Clean and sparse - not a lot of atmosphere, but if you want yummy basic food and go with good friends you will not be disappointed!

What a wonderful food experience. The service was exceptional. My husband and I had a gift card and went to try out Chef's Menu. What a hidden gem for foodies. The decor is not fancy at all, but the service is excellent and the food is beyond expectations. It is obvious that great attention is paid to food preparation and... More
