Everything was delicious. Literally everything. Appetizers, mains, desserts. Unfortunately, they fisherman didn't catch any halibut that day, but the meal was still incredible. Not usually a fan of blueberry pie. This was the exception.

We often still talk about our meal here. Will definitely return whenever I'm in the area again.

Had the seafood chowder, blue mussels, lobster dip, Caesar salad, salmon, strawberry shortcake, and blueberry pie.

Unfortunately, did not discover this gem until September, 2017. Even at that time of the year and continuing into early October (2nd visit), it was very busy. This is why! Delicious, imaginative seafood, attractively presented; friendly service; comfortable, well appointed, coastal surroundings,themed staff uniforms and the perfect harbour side location. Love, love, love it! My personal favourite is the pan fried, beautifully herbed haddock and seafood chowder poutine. Look forward to this spring and the opportunity to try out more of the menu! This spot has the perfect combination to keep you coming back.

Was visiting with my in laws who are from Ireland. Mussels were fantastic, as were the lobster rolls. Bust spot, but we were there off-season so didn’t have to wait too long for a seat. Highly recommend!

We spent a lot of time planning for our June trip to Prince Edward Island and one restaurant that kept showing up on review sites was the "Blue Mussel Cafe in North Rustico Harbour.

AND NO WONDER.............what a super place for a first Island dinner or dinner at any time.

We didn't have reservations, although we went in mid to late june before the tourist season really started, but it was still very busy for a Monday evening. With no waiting, we were seating in a lovely area with a super view of the harbour.

I started with the steamed blue mussels for an appetizer and they were to die for. SOOOOOOOOOO good.

My wife had the pan fried haddock, while I had the sautéed scallops. Both meals were beyond delicious.

Although, only open seasonally from May to October, it is out go place for a wonderful meal in a world-class setting.

Can't miss dinner

Very attentive wait staff. Food was soooo delicious. We can't wait until our return visit. Wish we would have been able to try more items from the menu.
