“Two Thumbs Down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

Don't waste your time or money here. There is a WAY BETTER cafe not too far from here that has a lot more to offer. Had an espresso and my girlfriend had a cappuccino, I didn't think you could make these taste horrible, but we couldn't finish them. But you try for yourself and see!

“Gourmet Bistro Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2009

Cafe Phare is a quaint, French bistro in the center of Caraquet with a refined, yet casual, ambiance. Outdoor seating is also available. The waiter's command of English was somewhat weak, but he went out of his way to answer questions, give advice, get the orders right (he even pulled the chef, who spoke fluent English, out of the kitchen to help communicate). The chef is young, talented, and trained in Quebec. The meal was absolutely superb, and cooked perfectly. The menu has fixed-price 3 course meals (starter, soup, and entree), or you can order a la carte. There's a full bar, and superb desserts (I noticed quite a few other diners went there just for dessert). Meals run about CAN$35, but wine, dessert, tax and tip will bring it up to over CAN$50 per person. Personally, it think it is worth the price and would certainly dine there again.
