We had a super time there and so happy to see your small restaurant busy at this precarious time. The meal was absolutely delicious and the price point was excellent. We will be sure to come back and recommend it to others - in fact, we already have.

You should definitely let the enticing smell as you walk past the door pull you in. While not inexpensive, the Beach Pea is definitely worth every penny - and every calorie. The innovative cocktails and Salt Cod Bacalao was a great way to start the evening. The one appie shared between the two of us was more than enough as the flavours are so fulsome and rich. We both opted for the Scallop and Rabbit Risotto which was perfection. The rice was perfectly cooked, with a lovely creaminess without being mushy, and each mouthful of tender scallop, ribbons of rabbit meat, dried cranberry and walnut was heaven.

Topping that would have been difficult, but the panna cotta (for him) and almond cake with ginger ice cream (for me) were delicious, without being oversweet or too rich.

Portion sizes are generous without being overwhelming. If you are of a smaller appetite though, I would recommend sharing the starter and dessert if you can.

It’s rare that you go to a restaurant and every course is absolutely perfect, yet that was the outcome at the Beach Pea. The grilled octopus was magnificent. Lobster pasta was amazing! Scallops were incredible!

Try the clam and pea toast, you won't regret it. Main course of scallops very good. Carbonara good also but bacon a bit tough. Tasty though. Nice enough waitress. Delish mojito.

Our experience at Beach Pea was more than might have been expected given the restraints of COVID. The inventive dividers between tables worked magnificently well!
Service was friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure. The food and its presentation was truly outstanding, and a good many items come from the in-house kitchen. Everything comes together in a truly beautiful way at the Beach Pea in Lunenburg, N.S.
Honestly, we look forward to our next visit before this wonderful restaurant closes for the season...I believe at the end of October?

Our main meals were good, app was not so good and service was basic. I work in the industry, so I understand that things get busy and I know what it is like to serve. But there was no table checks, and no friendly chats. The host, was lovely, whom we assumed was the owner, she sat us. Our server was ok, I can't help but wish she would have made suggestions at the table, maybe asked us what brought us in (it was our 1st wedding anniversary) or if we were from the area and followed up on our meal experience. We would have ordered a second drink had she asked. We had another person bring our meals and our server didn't even pop over to ask if it was ok - even after cleaning the table right beside us, takes 2 seconds to ask. Your restaurant has high end pricing so when the service doesn't match, it feels like your value of experience is not there. Maybe she was just having a bad day, but in this industry you have to learn to put personal aside and be willing to bring your bright self to every table. It does impact the guest experience and thus the re-peat business. Also, as a comment/recommendation: the charcuterie board - was a bit of a let down. I would recommend using wooden boards for presentation and maybe adding some things other than meat and one horseradish. Even a few carrots, some local jellies or pea shoots would suit your name and brighten the plate. It was a regular plate, with brown meats in a circle, not the most appealing. Our service was such a let down and the food was just ok - after our meal we didn't even want to stay for dessert, we hit up the ice cream shop instead. Your atmosphere was really cute, it's too bad your service wasn't more attentive seeing as it is an intimate place. We would tell friends that it was "ok". I don't mean to be negative in this - simply offer my honest experience, so take what you want from it. I will say that the one drink that I had with the basil leaf - was delicious!

We had a wonderful meal at Beach Pea.
The food was wonderful and our server was very informed.
The only thong to mention was how hot it was. It rained so we couldn’t eat outside - very little air flow inside with a Heat Pump that didn’t seem to be working for the AC.
Other than that, it was a truly great experience.
