What a beautiful restaurant. The server was very nice and seemed completely not bothered that we had two small kids with us. The food was yummy - they had lots of gluten free options. Although if you're not gluten free, the homemade pasta was fantastic.

If all you want is a tasty pizza for a reasonable price this place is good and it does stay open later than many places in Annapolis Royal

My wife and I ate there (dinner) as it was close to where we were staying and had a very good meal and were well looked after. A lot less formal than many eateries maybe because the décor was more up to date and the waitress were all young and jovial.

We visit Bistro East a few times each year and it is one of our favourites. Most recently we had a light dinner that, overall, upheld our usual high expectations. My husband had salmon fish cakes and a salad. He enjoyed his choice very much. I had a small green salad and the prosciutto wrapped scallop appetizer. Salad was excellent.... More

Comfortable atmosphere, staff were friendly & accomodating.The menu is varied & includes some nice seafood options. Our party of 4 all ordered the seafood extreme prepared with home made pasta. The chef was very obliging to serve the pasta with olive oil as opposed to the cream sauce on the menu to meet dietary restrictions. The pasta was delicious with... More
