New favorite, fantastic food, went for brunch but wish we were there for dinner!

had the lobster bennedict, it was fantastic, loved the vinaigrette on the salad and the seafood was so fresh, grab a patio table if you can get one, the view off the deck is wonderful,

I cant wait to come back, if you're on the south shore, its a must visit!

The food was delicious and fancy. I had a portobello burger with beet soup and for a burger without any meat on it, it was one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. They also bring out a small basket of home made biscuits which are to die for. they have a bakery downstairs and we wanted to buy some, but it was unfortunately closed for the weekend.

Rhubarb is one of our regular stops and it is best to make a reservation, although not required. The food and service is consistently excellent.

Most notably is the Beet Salad, Homemade Biscuits and growing selection of Local Craft Beers.

This was our second visit having stumbled upon it last year after visiting Peggy's cove. This year we skipped the cove and drove from Halifax just for the fish and chips and the ambience. My husband opted for the fish cake special and I forced him to share as they were so tasty. Teen daughter raved about the pizza and grandparents enjoyed the lobster roll and chowder. Lemon and blueberry pound cake for desert was lovely. We had friendly and helpful service and loved sitting on the outside patio while enjoying our food and the views and the art work. We'll be back at christmas!

Our very last day in Nova Scotia we drove the lighthouse trail to Peggy's Cove. We came across Rhubarb Restaurant and Oceanstone Resort without knowing about them. The restaurant is so inviting looking that we turned around and came back to eat. We were very glad that we did. We sat on the back balcony on a stunningly beautiful day and just relaxed after the frenzied tourist rush at Peggy's Cove. The restaurant was quite busy but the servers were attentive and friendly. The food was worth the wait because it was delicious. While waiting I walked around the grounds to take some pictures and found the bakery under the balcony. I bought a pecan bar and some cookies for later in the afternoon. They were also very good. When you plan a trip to Peggy's Cove you should include a meal at Rhubarb's Restaurant on your itinerary.
