Had one piece fish and chips. Fish was fresh and the fries were well done. Delicious coleslaw! Highly recommend it to anyone in Glace Bay or Cape Breton.

We were 7, and had mainly appys and drinks. I was intrigued by the greek pasta and was not disappointed. It was outstanding, as were the tai chicken bites. Nachos were good, but my wife found her hot wings way too salty. She couldn't finish...them. Overall the service was excellent, the place was packed but we were never left wanting. The music was absolutely outstanding- 2 young local guys with guitars. They played a little bit of everything, even had the girls dancing in their seats! The music was not overpowering, you could still carry on a conversation. Overall a great evening out!More

Sometimes they get it right, and the dining experience is enjoyable. It very much seems to depend on who is working. My partner cannot eat egg or meat for religious reasons (Hindu) and previously we enjoyed Talo, as their veggie burger doesn’t have egg, and...they will sometimes pan fry fries for him. This time, unfortunately they put mayo on his burger, which ended up making him very sick throughout the night - he didn’t realize until a couple of bites in that there was mayo. It also took about 45 minutes for our food to arrive, on a very quiet night. When we brought the mayo/egg issue up to the server, she was very dismissive. She offered no reparations, I.e., new burger, reduction in bill, apology. I see all the reviews touting how allergy friendly it is - I’d give it a miss if you have an allergy. I find the service very inconsistent, and clearly their adherence to dietary restrictions is unimportant to them.More

So finally got to have lunch here and as a party of 4 we were not disappointed. Mussels, FANTASTIC, Tomato/cucumber salad, GOOD, Grilled Vegetable Goat Cheese Salad, SO GOOD, Monte Crisco sandwich GREAT,Steak Sandwich, very good, Bruschetta, AMAZING. This is an amazing place to eat....The food is cooked TO PERFECTION. You can tell the owners take pride. My question though, is if you take such pride in serving such great food, why do you not have great coffee (may be only a little thing) people love their coffee, and it was very disappointing that all 3 of us agreed, you need to up your coffee and maybe introduce special coffee, espresso maybe, or just a really great cup of coffee. Sorry I couldn’t give you 5 stars. All in all though, give this place a try, but don’t order the coffee until they perfect the art of coffee making ( i think they forgot to add the coffee)More

I had the pleasure of eating at Talo twice in 2 weeks, and I loved it. It’s a cozy, intimate spot, with great staff and fantastic food. I enjoyed the Trio, as well as, the Butternut Squash Ravioli...they were both amazing and I’d recommend them...to everyone. I’m anxious to try their Gnocchi as well, but it’s been sold out each time...so I guess that means it’s really good. With a great location, across the street from the century old municipal theatre, it’s great for an evening out with friends and family.More

A good experience for the whole family, including a vegetarian who’s lactose and gluten intolerant and a picky preteen. The server was patient and helped us each find something to eat. We were all happy with our meals. We all loved the avocado fries!!

Talo is such a great find in the Glace Bay area. Their menu is seasonal, keeps some classic favorites but always has something fresh and new. The desserts are baked in store and are delectable. The space is beautiful and trendy whether it is to...join your friends for brunch or to have a dessert and glass of wine while listening to local music.More
