Perth Andover is my home town. Travelling back from Toronto after 35 yrs ago, I was so delighted that finally someone had the courage to open such a wonderful restaurant. Charles and Shirley ( owners) are delightful and the food was simply delicious, inventive, creative and like something I would expect in downtown Toronto. The view was really wonderful and... More

We simply could not believe that this amazing bistro could be found in the village of Perth-Andover....Montreal yes, but a tiny village in NB?!! We never expected to find such a jewel! We had seared jumbo scallops on pickled beets, sauteed portobello mushrooms with a red pepper remoulade and chevre, Duck confit with asparagus, and pan-seared Salmon with a tarragon... More

Had lunch on a cool rainy day and was delighted with the French Onion Soup. Not a traditional recipe. Instead, it was light and seasoned with fresh herbs - absolutely delicious. My shrimp and asparagus crape salad was a unique blend of fresh greens, vegetables and tiny pieces of fresh watermelon, pinapple, and cantaloupe. The dressing blended the flavor so... More

Very nice bistro located just across the river (bridge) turn left, in Perth Andover NB Excellent brunch, nicely set up with fine decor and good choices on the menu.5 minute detour off the Trans Canada is well worth it if you wish to avoid fast-food eating. Service was good and friendly.

We stopped off for lunch at this rather unassuming looking restaurant for lunch. It was the perfect spot on a warm day, overlooking the St John river. Our order was for sandwiches/paninis and we expected simple refueling food. The quality was great, freshly prepared and really tasty, a lovely surprise!

The food itself was actually quite good, how ever I didn't enjoy the atmosphere of the. The service wasn't great, but the food made up for it. The restaurant does lack in special forms of coffee like latte or espresso. The value wasn't great a normal sized sandwich but didn't come with a side ex salad, the price was $12.50.
