The Bicycle Thief

Reviewed By Peter C

Lovely place right on the water front. Had scallops to start, they were perfect. Had fillet mignon and half lobster as a main. The steak was perfect, the lobster a little on the small side. All with a lovely merlot, and an excellent dessert. Not a budget restaurant, not overpriced either. A great atmosphere, excellent service, and really good food. Highly recommend!!

Reviewed By lanawl - Halifax, Canada

This is a real five star restaurant —especially for NS. Service, ambiance and amazing meals. My favourite is the ravioli with lobster, and the calamari is to die for!
One of few places in Halifax where they either know enough, or care enough to actually decant your $150 bottle of wine.

Da Maurizio Dining Room

Reviewed By AmberUrth - St. John's

The name seemed familiar but I'm not sure that I've ever been here before; I don't get to Halifax often. I chose it because I love Italian, but I ended up choosing the unusual option of rack of lamb with blueberry compote. I love rack of lamb and the mix with blueberries seemed so unusual that I couldn't resist. It was delicious. I started with their version of caesar salad which was also quite good. I normally don't like bacon with my caesar salad because it tends to overpower everything, but with this mix it worked quite well.
Overall, a delicious meal. I want to come back to sample the more traditional Italian dishes. I'd intended to have veal scallopini and some pasta, but couldn't resist the lamb rack with blueberries! Sometimes the unusual options are irresistible.

Gio

Reviewed By Lucinda03 - Halifax, Nova Scotia

Group of eight golfing friends went to Gio restaurant last night. The restaurant is part of the Prince George Hotel. The food was delicious especially the veal shank. Besides the beautiful restaurant and food the evening was made by our hostess and server Terri. She was so attentive to all our needs. Even stood on a chair to take a group photo!! Will definitely go back!

Food is consistently good as is the service. Food is prepared and is hot when you receive it.The size of the meal is always just enough that you feel satisfied when finished. A nice glass of wine or scotch finishes the meal off perfectly.

Reviewed By travelsoothesthesoul - Canada

I was shocked to see this place serves poor quality and poor tasting frozen bulk fries next to their claims of having the best fish around. I could not even focus on the fish as the fries were so bad. And nothing is cheap here. I would never eat here again because the fries are so cheap and so bad and that is a deal breaker. Please don't make claims about having the best fish when you can't even make homemade fries or home made tarter sauce.

Hi, as always we love your pizza. It is the best pizza in Halifax bar none. We were recently in for a sit down meal. We wanted to order a Caesar salad and a large pizza as we wanted left over pizza to take home...MoreLisa, what can I say? I'm a stickler for rules ... My bad.
