  • Salty's On the Waterfront

    4 out of 5 stars

  • La Cave

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    La Cave is a wonderful small "cafe" style restaurant in the basement of a building. The ambiance is incredible: each section of the restaurant devided into their own "private " rooms for a maximum of intimacy. The staff is great, deserts and coffee remarkable, but unfortunately, entrees are not what they could be. This is definately a great place...

  • Maxwell's Plum English Pub

    4 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    After a long day of visiting many of the sites in Halifax, we decided to pop into Maxwell's Plum for a quick drink and a small bite. Turns out they have plenty of beer and cider on tap, so much that it is almost hard to choose one - so I didn't, I chose a Sampler which allowed me to have 4 different choices in 8oz glasses, perfect size to sample...

    Halifax Restaurants

    Can you believe that I almost forget to visit this restaurant after being 6 weeks in Halifax. Even in such a short time you build up habits and taken shortcuts to Spring Garden Road and missing al the fun The Fireside has to offer. Well it's a fabulous basement place with a cosy bar section and even cosier dining section hidden behind the bar....

    The Wooden Monkey is a modern restaurant with a great interior (eye for details). It has an eco-food set-up (organic and macrobiotic food) with a bar at ground level and a restaurant section on the first floor. The food is somewhat overpriced, but the atmosphere is cosy.

  • Your Father's Mustache

    4 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    Your Father's Moustache calls itself the Halifax's Landmark Pub & Eatery. I dropped in at a busy Fridaynight and got a prompt service from one of the many waitresses. The crowd was young, students and alike and some hundred voices were competing. The food from the grill was served fast and had a basic Canadian quallity. Again quantity was more than...

  • The Henry House

    Halifax Restaurants

    The Henry House is a small but excellent restaurant. It serves homebrewed beer and the food and service is like in good old England. Great place! This restaurant surely is on top of my favorite Halfax restaurants. The history (quoting the building plate at the front): This house was built in 1934 in a suburb of Halifax. Its side hall plan,...

  • Tim Hortons

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    Make no mistake...Tim Hortons does indeed have Everything bagels. They may not be listed anywhere, you may not be able to see them because the clerk is strategically positioned directly in front of them. Oh, but they are there. If you don't ask, someone might ask for you and you'll feel like an idiot. In the morning, especially if you're grumpy,...

  • Boondocks

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    Boondock's is a little off the beaten track. It's out in Eastern Passage on the Dartmouth Side of the harbour at the Fishermen's Village area but is well worth a drive. The restaurant is next to the harbour looking over the cove and beach area. Lots of windows make it bright and airy. The restaurant is decorated in a nautical theme and the tables...

  • Rouge's Roost BrewPub

    4 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    Wouldn't send my worst enemy to Rogues Roost The greasy portions caused such severe Food Poisoning that I was kept from work the next day. The dirty bathrooms remind you of a Bus terminal. The staff, all men, could take some lessons on what service is, and common manners. After more than a decade in business it's clear to anyone who walks through...

    Halifax Restaurants

    Eating out with kids can sometimes be tricky so that's why we were happy to find the Harbourside Market: Kevin and Alex headed for The Burger Gourmet, while my sister and I got something at The Mad Greek and Pizza Del Forno. There was also a seafood spot that seemed to be very popular and a pub. And the great thing is that after we all got what we...

    3 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    The food here is so so. Sorry but it looks so much better than it really is . In summer a lot of tours go here. The food is over priced. The best part is the covered patio. It's hard to go wrong with fish and chips.

  • Outside of Halifax

    Halifax Restaurants

    Near the end of our journey around Cape Breton we had returned to the north shore and were in the small village of Inverness. At the time I was craving a meal with a touch of international flavour but thought that I was likely out of luck. We were really amazed to discover, hidden away down by the waterfront, a tiny restaurant called the 'Casual...

    Halifax Restaurants

    For all you low budget weekend visitors and students with little money at the end of the month Bud the Spud is your saver. Parked at Spring Garden Road next to the Public Library Bud serves hot stuff from the back of his van. BTW the hot dog & saugaces vendor at the walkway next door is even cheaper. Fish & Chips

  • Montana's

    3 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    Montana's, located in the incredibly busy Bayers Lake Industrial Park, is a very popular, fun, casual barbeque style restaurant. The atmosphere and menu are almost identical to Jack Astor's. I'm not sure who came first, but one should sue the other. You've all been to restaurants like this: paper table clothes that you can write on (they even...

    1 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    It's a chain restaurant. If you are uninterested in getting great local food then go here. I got pasta here once (that took forever to get) and it had a cup of water in the pasta bowl with the pasta ( I didn't order soup). I also ordered a smoothie and they gave me the wrong flavour. I thought the service was poor. There's nothing more to...

    Halifax Restaurants

    Great restaurant with a wide ranging menu that is sure to have something for every taste. Good, central location with a view of the harbour. It was early and quiet when we went in which gave our friendly waitress the chance to stand and chat while we looked at the menu. It was difficult to choose as there was such a range to choose from....

  • Highland Cafe

    Halifax Restaurants

    This was a great find and one that came about looking for beer, as is usual for me. I had enjoyed the Propellar beer at the Split Crow and saw the brewery was on Gottingen Street. It was where the hostel we were to stay at was located and supposedly a cool part of town so we wandered over there to check it out. Glad we did as right in the same...

  • Pogue Fado

    4 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    Pogue Fado is an Irish pub on Barrington Street (downtown Halifax). I went there twice and really liked it. The interior looks like a typical pub, and the service is good. It can get crowded and noisy later in the evening, but that's one of the charms of a pub! On some nights they also have live music, though I didn't stick around for it. I had the...

  • Split Crow

    3 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    Old and atmospheric Maritime pub that has you imagining another era with a convenient location and its own beer too. I had an okay Halibut with mashed potatoes for CAN$9.25. The potatos were instant and fish a big dry. D had an awful piece of shark and didn't feel too well later that night. I will say that perhaps the fish suffered from lack of...

  • Crawdad's Crabshack & Oyster Bar

    Halifax Restaurants

    Crawdad's is a Cajun-style seafood restaurant located in the heart of the Historic Properties district. (second floor of the Privateer's Warehouse). It's in probably the oldest building in the oldest part of town.

  • The Halifax Alehouse

    4 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    The Halifax Alehouse is a bi-level bar/pub and restaurant housed in a historic building, between the Citadel and the waterfront. We had lunch at the Alehouse, and we enjoyed ourselves a great deal. The food was typical pub cuisine - filling and probably unhealthy, but who really cares. Eating in pubs isn't the way to keep in shape, right? The...

  • Bluenose II

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    The Bluenose Restaurant is on the corner of Duke and Hollis near Historic Properties and it right downtown. It’s almost like a diner type of atmosphere and you could call it a “greasy spoon” sort of place. The menu was great and so was the food. I had the Eggs Benedict.

  • Granite Brewery

    3 out of 5 stars

    Halifax Restaurants

    The Granite Brewery at first strikes you as being somewhat run-down, a place old legionnaires might hang out. But luckily, with every pint of their own brand of beer, the atmposphere becomes cozier and cozier. I'm still working on this tip.

  • Peddler's Pub

    Their were a lot of very good retaurants in the area, but one of my favorite spots to go for lunch was Peddler's Bar & Grille. They had great lunch specials that were reasonably priced. We also went there for happy hour (4:30 - 6:30pm) & supper a few times and the meals were also very good. (The beers always tasted good, especially during happy...

    One of my favorite spots that I remember well is Mexicai Rosa's in Halifax. There was great service, a real cool Mexican atmosphere and great Mexican food which I like so I thought it was all great. Overall it was a fun place and I would go back here for sure. Baked Apple Dessert or Ice Cream I think it was. It was great!!

    Fiasco. The first thing that comes up in my mind is a total disaster. But this restaurant is totally the contrary. It's a 100% quality place with nice romatic corner and an excellent selection. Entrance is a little hidden; you have to enter through the central building lobby. Only plus points (at a price). Business hours: Mo-Sa: 5PM - 11PM Su:...

    Another pearl in downtown Halifax. The restaurant, formerly known as Soho Kitchen has moved from the hidden location at the end of Granville street to next doors to the Economy Shoe shop at Argyle Street. It's now called SOHO Bar + Grill. A visit is worth while. Great atmosphere with wooden tables and church seats. Excellent food and at Tuesday and...

  • Birmingham Bar & Grill

    Halifax Restaurants

    Halifax Restaurants

    Tribeca is a Bar & Bistro, also serving food. The Bar part is probably the most important one, as this part of Granville Street is not a good location for a restaurant (I remember that the Soho Kitchen moved from next door). What's positive about this place: -Great lookthrough onto the harbour (if you have a window seat -Metro Parking Garage at...
