Something fun, funky and fresh for everyone. Great wines by the glass and inspired cocktails are dished up by schooled mixologists in a hip and trendy lounge, making it a great place to end your day or start your night.

Had lunch here with two friends on Saturday. The weekend brunch menu offered both breakfast and lunch selections. The three of us opted for sandwiches and salad. The burgers are HUGE, and both the vegetarian option (lentil and cilantro) and ground beef burger got high marks. The club sandwich, served on zucchini bread, was also good. Sandwiches and burgers come with soup, salad or fries. We were too full for dessert! Nice to see interesting vegetarian options in a hotel restaurant.

Most traveller's expect hotel restaurants to be acceptable but not exceptional. Tempo, in Halifax ' s Delta Barrington Hotel is exceptional. The cuisine was first rate, the atmosphere separating itself yet siamese twinly attached to/from the hotel in which it is located and the down east service made this one if my favorite spots for a great meal be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. The only thing making it less than perfect is the limited wine selections.

This place has a great breakfast menu! We ordered the large fruit tray with yogurt and granola. We also ordered the Tempo Benny. We are Eggs Benedict connoisseurs and this is one of the best Eggs Benedicts we have ever tried. If we are ever in Halifax, we would definitely come back here for breakfast.

My usual stops to Tempo is to pick up lunch/supper as they have a great ready to go selection. Tasty salads, delicious smoothies, and wonderful sandwiches.
They're also very good to go in and sit down. For the most part the staff is on top of it, and the atmosphere is nice. It's a little more pricey than the usual place I would go to grab a burger. But it isn't too bad. The food is good, and their specials are usually amazing. I would suggest going at least once.

I ate brunch at Tempo while attending a conference in Halifax - I wasn't staying at the Delta Barrington but was advised to eat there by colleagues who were (and had eaten there regularly). This restaurant is modern and clean, and fits the style of a young, well-travelled professional quite well. While the decor, food presentation, service and main dishes were excellent I found the sides to be boring and under seasoned. Smoked salmon is a particular favourite of mine and Tempo's Salmon Benedict lived up to the hype, but the side grilled potatoes (that looked amazing) were bland. I enjoyed the idea of the fruit garnish but other local restaurants do it better - either Tempo should commit and do a fantastic fruit garnish or choose something different to set them apart.
