Food was excellent and service was great. Food was a little pricy but one can appreciate this as tourism is their main form of income.

Most of Lunenburg is very touristy now, however on the drive from Lunenburg to Mahone Bay, there is a little restaurant called the Old Black Forest Cafe and Gasthof that is well worth stopping at to savour the taste of Old Lunenburg which was populated by German settlers in the 1700s.
