We enjoyed a delicious supper here on our visit to Annapolis Royal, eating supper al fresco on their deck overlooking the water. Our lobster dish was delicious, and the service friendly and attentive. Accompanied by a delicious Nova Scotia wine it was a charming supper

May be the best in the area! so, lower your expectations
Yes, it is definitely overpriced with friendly attentive service, unless you get a temporary waitress who has no training, experience, or waiting knowledge.
Food items: scallop ( highly recommended). If you do not mind to overpay for this high quality scallop.
The haddock fish is really good.
The spaetzle is an authentic Bavarian dish
The lobster risotto should be named something else, it is deceiving As it has no resemblance to the real Italian risotto ... I do not recommend it at all.
Wine selection is very limited.
In a nut shell, quality food , mildly expensive...but for the area, is acceptable.

The staff was friendly and professional. The food was very good, we both had salads for our lunch. The scallops were very, very good. Overall a very pleasant experience, especially the view. It is a bit more expressive than what we're used to, but that is what vacations are for.

We have eaten here a few times over the years and as time goes by, our disappointment in the lack of lobster in their dishes and the higher prices has us concerned. The food is very good but if you are going to charge $23 for lobster linguine and there is barely any lobster in the dish, something is very wrong. Yes, we know that you want to make money but when you continue to do something like this when we have made previous comments to wait staff, it is up to the owner to make sure that you please your customers. I don't expect to see a whole lobster in the dish but I expect to see more than three or four tiny pieces of lobster and one very small claw especially when lobster is so inexpensive to buy in Nova Scotia. The risotto dish also has the same issues. The owner can also be very abrupt with customers as we have witnessed. She needs to trust her staff that they will be able to provide sufficient service since we have never had a bad experience with wait staff. With some simple changes, the restaurant could easily return to its former excellent reviews and we hope that the owner will take our advice.

Lovely cozy cafe offering a good selection. We both had the schnitzel which was very good but it was made of pork versus veal. Evening was cool so unable to sit on the outside deck, which looked wonderful. Server was very courteous and attentive
