Delicious and creative! Balanced flavours in a friendly candlelit atmosphere. The warm kale salad is out of this world.

As we entered the door to the restaurant, we were greeted with amazing smells of the kitchen. It was worth the visit to just enjoy a drink and the aroma.

Had an amazing meal. Service was prompt.

Worth the drive from Halifax. While the appy’s were spotty, what they do well they do very well. Braised rabbit risotto with scallops was ridiculously good. Spiced cheesecake and the cheese plate.

The food and flavour are absolutely outstanding. The staff are on top of their game and know your needs before you do! Please keep the table dividers. They provide public health safety, a sense of privacy, and allow for a quiet conversation. They simply work.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Beach Pea. The food was lovely, table service excellent, and ambiance very warm and inviting. The only “negative” is that both the salad and risotto (otherwise delicious) could have had just a little less salt.

Mains and drinks were incredible. Appetizers were good but not worth the high price. Dessert needed some more flavour, we had the Almond cake.

Made a reservation here while on vacation and so glad we did. Food was fantastic. Started with and shared the calamari with my wife. I had the Scallop and Rabbit Risotto as a main and it was the Beal dish I have had in some time. My wife had the Hanger steak and it was solid as well.

If you come to Lunenburg, you gotta eat here!

Enjoyed our first visit to The Beach Pea. Calamari wasn’t as tender as we would expect, not as an appetizer and in the Pasta Sepia dish. The Calamari dish, overall was very tasty and would have been excellent if more tender, same for the Pasta. The Lobster Tagliatelle was good, but for us too much tarragon. We preferred the Magnolia Grill's Lobster Linguine. O really excellent service and nice ambience.

Both the drinks and food selection were outstanding. We ordered a variety of dishes for appetizers and main courses.

The Tuna tartar was under-seasoned, that is lacked salt and acidity which we were able to cure with a simple lemon wedge which greatly improved the dish.

The Gnochi were very slightly dense and the duck in it was fatty which made the meal very heavy. Something to cut through the fat, lack of some acid was a problem.

However all food was delicious, the ambience great and the drink selection was outstanding. We started off with Pol Roger for the appetizers and that was as always just beautiful, and a great French red Bordeaux for the main course.

Thank you it was great!

Delicious cuisine
We had the halibut and the Lunenberg Bay scallops but the servings were very small.
Expensive for what we had. Don't go too hungry!
