Where to eat in Halifax and PEI?
- R. Carter
I'm going to Halifax and PEI soon for a vacation and have been told that they're both culinary wastelands. Any recommendations to disprove this?
The dining room at the inn at Dalvay-by-the-Sea is WONDERFUL. One of the best meals I have ever had, and absolutely the best piece of beef I have EVER eaten! I am working on planning a vacation around just eating there again! The dessert with dates in it is worth saving room for.
There was a feature in the tavel section of the Globe and Mail a few months ago where the author is quoted as saying the restaurant in the Delta (along with another in Halifax) were turning heads in New York. He seemed to think it was excellent. I just returned Sunday from a week visit to Nova Scotia and P.E.I. and found very good seafood at the lobster suppers in both Baddeck, Cape Briten and St Anne,s church in Cavendish P.E.I. Also in Margaree Harbour there is a small seafood store on the beach. The lady will cook your lobster for you for 50 cents a pound more and provide you with everything you need for the picnic benches outside. In Charlottetown I had an excellent salmon dinner at a dinner theater at the Rad
hotel. The show was pretty good too!
If you are in Lunenburg, check out Magnolia and the hilcrest cafe.
Finally, be sure to try the french fries at "Buds spuds" truck on Springdale street.
