    Our New Year's Eve dinner was exceptional. We had the following dishes: Carol, our waitress, started us off with a lovely glass of wine for my husband and the peach drink. Then she served us an a lovely scallop dish as the amuse bouche. First Course: RAVIOLI - house made lobster ravioli, sauce Nantua, Acadian Sturgeon Caviar and my husband had OYSTERS six Sober Island Jades, watermelon mignonette, house cocktail sauce, lemon. Second Course: I totally enjoyed every bite of the SHRIMP FERGOLA pan roasted sustainable Tiger Shrimp, tomato & roasted garlic fumet, leek, red pepper, pimentón DUCK FRITE Brome Lake Duck Breast, hand cut fries, rapini, béarnaise sauce Third Course: AFFOGATO orgeat ice cream, almonds, espresso CHOCOLATE chocolate panna cotta, shortbread, caramel budino, sea salt, crème fraîche We have been eating at the Beach Pea Kitchen and Bar since it's opening years ago and we highly recommend it. It is one of our favourite restaurants to eat at. The good is also great and the service is exceptional. We were greeted by Sylvie and later we had the opportunity to chat with Martin (the owners of the Beach Pea). They also own The Salt Shaker Deli, which is open all year, and Bar Salvador, The Fish Shack and The Oyster Bar. All of their restaurants serve wonderful food. Have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to eating with you again in April when you re-open for the season. Thanks for an exceptional evening of fine dining. Patricia and David Watson

    We enjoyed our meals very much. The only two things we would mention is it was a little cool in the room and we wished we’d not given up our coats. Secondly the red wine glasses that are used are not to our taste…difficult to hold with small hands and ugly.

    Really enjoyed our visit - we were there for a special occasion and the food was delicious. Enjoyed the wine options as well. Our seat was close to the heat pump and so I was too hot - but usually I'm too cold so overall it's a win.

    Service was good. The food was disappointing: string beans undercooked and very crunchy, scallops were warm but raw, scallops and shrimp were without flavour or seasoning in Pasta Sepia and pasta was not al dende but overcooked.

    We chose to eat at the Beach Pea for a family birthday celebration because we know that we’ll have an excellent quality meal. The wine selection is great. The calamari and the pasta dishes were delicious!! We hope to return to the Beach Pea in December.

    There is nothing better than the anticipation of biting into a perfectly prepared scallop! The aromas and excitement are obvious and abundant here each visit and while we have tried probable every item on their menu, no matter which scallop dish they are featuring, it perfect each and every time. We have experienced excellent, courteous service each and every visit and look forward to returning again soon!

    The food at Beach Pea Kitchen was delightful. I had the sepia pasta and caesar salad and both were delicious. The staff was relaxed and knowledgeable and we felt so comfortable in the space. My partner had the burrata appetizer and the halibut and enjoyed them both. We will definitely go back.

    Beautiful resturant, wait staff were very good, a little disappointed with the lack of acknowledgment of my birthday as it was asked when booking online, which at that point was communicated it was my 50th celebration. It's minor but, I'm not sure why bother asking if nothing comes of it. Seeing the table over from us had a birthday girl at it that was acknowledged and comp drinks were given...truthfully it kinda stung. Steak was ourstanding, and my dish Scallop Sepia was good but unfortunately the pasta was a little too salty but I'm sure it was isolated. Overall, we enjoyed our experience and will give it another try again in the near future. Kindness Regards Lisa Courage

    Ambience was good, Calamari was disappointing (small portion) and paper napkins didn't impress for a $150 meal in an upscale restaurant. Scallop and Rabbit Risotto was excellent.
