Default Best restaurants in Halifax, etc.

We will be spending one day in Halifax, Sydney, Charlottetown, Quebec and Montreal. What are the best restaurants to have lunch in in each of these cities? We feel it is not worth going back to the ship to have lunch when you have the opportunity to have good local food.

Hi, I live in Halifax. There are many wonderful restaurants here.
Along the waterfront I would highly recommend Salty's or the Lower Deck (great place for the feel of the area). They are both past the ferry terminal. If you want to sit by the water just go past the ferry terminal and into the indoor market/mall -- there's lots to choose from there (including lobster and the clams are great) and you can sit outside overlooking the harbour. I also recommend getting an ice cream at Cows -- it also a great place to shop for souveniers. Another good snack is Beaver Tails (pastry), located along the waterfront .... so yummmy. Murphy's on the Water is another good place. From the outside it looks like a store but go inside and to the back and there's a great restaurant for lunch, with good fish & chips and seafood chowder.

Hope this helps. Enjoy your time in our beautiful city.

Dear Deb,
Thanks so much for the tips for restaurants. It is always great to get the advice of a local person as to where to eat. If your travels ever take you to Virginia Beach, I can give you some great advice as to where to eat and what to do! I am so looking forward to seeing your city and only wish that my husband, Rob and I would be able to spend more than just one day there.
Linda

As a resident of Charlottetown, let me direct you to "Piece o' Cake" restaurant in the Confederation Court Mall downtown! Great spot for lunch!

In Halifax we took the self guided walking tour using the map we picked up at the visitor center in the terminal. We found a restaurant about two blocks above the bay called McGelvies. Excellent food and Crabcakes to die for. Have a wonderful cruise.

As a very frequent visitor to Prince Edward Island I can recommend a very nice restaurant in Charlottetown. We really enjoy the Pilot House. It is near the Confederation Center. While in Charlottetown I would suggest visiting the Founders Museum or going to a matinee of the play Anne of Green Gables at the Confederation Center. Charlottetown is a lovely, well kept, and walkable city. It is a very safe place to visit and visitors are made to feel very welcome.

I spent a week in Nova Scotia last summer and in Halifax we were sooooo impressed with the Sweet Basil restaurant which I believe is on Upper Water Street somewhere near the Halifax Casino. Our most memorable and enjoyable meal. I would recommend it to anyone! For dessert, the Sweet Basil ice-cream sounded a little bizarre but it must be tried. A fabulous experience.
