P.E.I. Fish Restaurant overlooking Shipwreck Point

Outstanding fish, clams and scallops (and seafood chowder) at a modest price are served at Shipwreck Cafe in Naufrage, a small fishing village one hour drive north east of Charlottetown (sp?). The best we've had so far. Seafood platter the most expensive at $14.95, the other plates at $10.95 with chowder at $5.95/bowl. Get there early (6:00 pm) or wait in line.
Truly memorable (informal of course). Enjoy!
the shipwreck is amazing...we eat there all the time and without a doubt the clam dinner is the best
Just found them on the #16 and it was a marvellous experience. The food was delicious and inexpensive (3 courses for $45 for 3 people)--the chowder was chunky and the homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie was heavenly! Best of all was the entertainment...a family of Bald Eagles circled around the point and landed on the beach. It was fascinating to watch the adults and younger birds gliding and swooping down to the rough water for their lunch! Well worth a visit, 15 minutes from St. Peter's Bay...but bring your binoculars!
Replying to my earlier report in 2005, Shipwreck Cafe unfortunately not as good as it once was. Chowder now much much better in Murray Harbor at BREHOUT'S. Also, excellent sea chowder and most elegant settting is Dalway by the Sea on the north shore for about $12. Within national park, but you get a free pass to get to Dalway by the Sea if you tell park ranger that is where you are going.
