  • Vito's: Classic Saint John

    by muzikman69 Written Mar 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vito's is a must stop for anyone coming to Saint John. The ceasar chicken, pizza, and pasta is excellant. Prices are very reasonable, and you will always leave satisified. Remember to try and save room for some of the cheese cake you will see when you first enter the building.

    Address: Hazen Avenue

    Directions: Uptown near the aquatic centre

    Reggie's is a small cafe which is located beside the city market at 26 Germain Street. This is a must stop for anyone coming to the city. The restaurant is very cultured and friendly, they even yell your name when your food is ready.

  • BILLY'S SEAFOOD MARKET: DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

    by bricks Written Jul 31, 2004

    Easily the worst seafood experience I had in the Maritime Provinces, perhaps the worst ever. Unfortunately, Billy's Seafood Company was mentioned in most of the travel guides I read. My meal was overpriced and overcooked. We had tried to get a table before a comedy act the night before, but they were very busy, so we stopped after a trip up the coast...I truly wish we hadn't. The hyper waiter couldn't answer a simple question... what do you have for beer??..so we ended up with run of the mill pisswater beer. I'm not sure they served anything better. I ordered the Deep Sea platter and was looking forward to a fine meal, instead I got mostly french fries that were so overcooked as to be inedible, clams that were anything but "juicy" as advertised, and haddock fried inches away from incineration. The only redeeming feature of the meal was the Digby scallops which must have been cooked separately...they were quite nice. It was evident to me that the fryolator oil was past its sell by date, it's too bad the cook didn't notice.

    My companion's meal, while digestible, was a disappointment. She found that the garlic in her seafood dish so overpowered the lobster, it might as well have been pollock.

    I am from the New England seacoast and my meal would have been a hanging offense at home. Really, fried clams shouldn't snap like potato chips! I know now that I should have complained, instead of gamely trying to find something good about the meal...it doesn't always pay to be as polite as Canadians.

    The irony is that the evening before we had a perfectly nice meal, complete with scallops and microbrewed beer at Tapps, a brewpub a block away. We spent a 3rd of the price of Billy's Seafood and actually enjoyed our meal. And our feet touched the floor. What's with the chairs anyway, Billy?

    The Riviera Restaurant,: It Might Not Be There Now!,

    by Geoff_Wright Updated Apr 22, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Riviera Restaurant, Saint John. This was in 1965, yes 1965!!

    Favorite Dish: According to the bill stub, two of us had a meal with bier and coffee, and icecream for C$5.20! What would that be now, I wonder? The meals were Roast Beef and Roast Chicken, together with potatoes and veg, I think.

  • Taco Pica: One of Saint John's BEST Restaurants!

    by BobStephen Written Jun 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The eclectic dining room and ethnic music add to the superior food in this Guatemalan restaurant. All dishes are excellent with the chicken flautas being an especially popular dish. The staff are friendly and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and service. Do not miss this wonderful dining experience!

    Favorite Dish: The chicken flautas with rice, beans and salad is excellent - if you are really hungry go for the two-flauta dish :o)

    Address: 96 Germain Street

    Directions: Next to Trinity Church - across from Bustin's

  • Ming's Restaurant: Do not recommend!

    by BobStephen Written Jun 11, 2003

    Heard great things but sorely disappointed! Do NOT recommend - one diner's sauce tasted horrible and waitress said it was from a can. The owner refused to refund the cost of the meal even though customer could not eat it. If you want bland, canned Chinese food that claims to be homemade and a rude owener who does not care what his customer's think - he told us not to come back when we complained - this is the place!
