The Five Fishermen
Unfortunately I am only ableUnfortunately I am only able to get to this restaurant once every couple of years---It is a wonderful dining experience each and every time !12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFreinds from "away"As this was a corporate dinner where we hosted guests from "away". Our guests were from Nunavut on this visit. We usually like to take guests to Five Fisherman on one of their first few visits to Halifax. The menu and food is exceptional with a lot of historic relevance in the building. I always ask the staff to have someone tell us a ghost story and portray a little of the history (The staff has allways been great and the stories always add to a memorable evening). Our guests always enjoy the open mussel buffet and we can always count on some great Atlantic Canada Seafood that we like to show off and also Nova Scotian Wine. Thanks for always keepeing the same high standards with freindly and professional staff. We will be back often!!7/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mussels ever!!I've tried mussels a few times and never really enjoyed them until now. With the 5 Fisherman they come complimentary with any entree and wow who needs a entree after having 3 plates of mussels! The entrees were just as delicious but I really could've just ate the mussels. I can't say enough about this place so go and see for your self.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable Service!!!My hubby loved the Mussels, We both loved the wine and the Service was wonderful!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLandmarkFive Fisherman continue to deliver quality service and excellent food.

As always the food was delicious .... the ambience wonderful and the wine perfect! As always we do love spending the extra for a fantastic meal!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMJust Like I RememberMy partner and I flew to Halifax (from Toronto) for the long weekend. I remember over 10 years ago going to Five Fishermans. It was memorable. The food for me was exceptional as I remember. I started off with the seafood chowder while my partner had the lobster bisque. The lobster bisque didn't taste good (burnt or too much cognac?) so it was returned and replaced with the chowder. My main was Lobster Stuffed Digby Scallops while my partner had the Arctic Char - both delicious. Dessert however was a little disappointing though, but the evening was wonderful. After dinner,we had a look around the restaurant after dinner and would have liked a table in the dining room with the stained glass windows. Oh well, next time.
Hoy & Goossens, Toronto5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceThis was our second visit to Five Fishermen, this time for dinner and we had a wonderful time. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly, and the kitchen staff accommodated our request to get an appetizer from the menu that was typically only offered downstairs. Very fresh and unique dishes. That mussel bar is dangerous!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday TreatNothing like good seafood when you're from the prairies!! Great food and service. Found the window seat a little cold, but that might not have been from the outside?!?!? Fun evening!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent qualityExcellent food, service and ambience. This is the case every time our family goes to the five fishermen. Even years apart, the quality of the food always stands up and impresses. We make it a point to take people there that have never had the opportunity to dine there. We would recommend it highly5/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
