Fodor's Review

Installed in a heritage building across from the Grand Parade, this restaurant is splurge-worthy. Tables are backlit through a wall of stained glass, and the seafood is so good locals keep coming back. Main courses are pricey but each comes with complimentary salad and mussels. The three-course prix fixe (C$51) is an affordable alternative to à la carte choices, or you could go all out at one of the monthly dining events that feature a seven-course tasting menu with wine

pairings (C$125). For more modest, less pricey fare, head to the Five Fishermen Grill, downstairs from the main restaurant. Also open for lunch, it has an Oyster Happy Hour from 4:30 to 6:30 daily.
