We were so excited to go to Trio Restaurant for a birthday supper. However it will be our last visit there. The fried halibut was dry and overcooked, like it had been microwaved. The crab cakes we could not even taste the crab. The service was just ok as we had trouble getting our meal rang through with their electronic... More

Can't say enough about the service at Trio. So friendly and helpful! The food was also great and lots of it, reasonably priced.

The Trio is in the Cambridge Suites hotel on the Esplanade in Sydney NS; don't be fooled that it be "just" a hotel restaurant, as it is far from that! What it lacks in ambiance it makes up for in a very good menu and the food is out of this world. Highly recommended by this traveler.

This restaurant is in the Cambridge Suites hotel. The food is really good. The service is really good. It's pretty hard to make a garden salad anymore than a garden salad, but it was possibly the best garden salad I have ever had. The crab cakes were great too. My friend had the best salad and loved it. The atmosphere... More

Lovely experience from service to quality of the food. I highly recommend the prime rib served only on Friday and Saturday evenings.

We had very good food and excellent service. I only wish we had stayed at Cambridge Suites during our time in Sydney.

One evening this week my husband and I dashed in out of the weather between engagements and stopped in for dinner. My haddock was delicious. Cooked perfectly with a lite seasoning, panfryed - but certainly not greasy. The vegetables were slightly crunchy and the basmati rice a perfect accompaniment (I could have chosen fries, roast potatoes or salad). My husband... More

We made reservation several days in advance, were seated next to the kitchen and open prep area, there were lots of available seats! Ordered prime rib dinner, worst ever eaten. Meat was overcooked and gray, no flavor whatsoever!. Mashed creamy potatoes had unmashed half potatoes mixed in - horrible. Side vegetables were undercooked and fiberous. Rice was cold. Returned the... More

I had the seafood linguini and it was very good. It comes with garlic toast and was very filling. The seafood portions were plentiful. Will certainly return back to this restaurant if I'm ever in the area
