    Phenomenal experience from start to finish. Every detail is considered re: your meals, ambience, restaurant cleanliness and service. This is a fantastic addition to Pictou County if you’re looking for a fancy dining experience. 11/10 will be back and recommending this restaurant to everyone.

    We went for a late Valentines dinner and it was well worth the wait. Our server Angela was very attentive and made us feel welcome upon arrival. We started with mussels and the crab/prawn cakes as appetizers and both were excellent. As much as we always say we are going to try something different we usually land on the steak. They had a surf and turf special on that we couldn’t pass on. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the seafood was very well cooked. A Crème brûlée finished off the meal and we left already talking about our next visit. Thanks again Tilly’s

    On a scale of one to ten, the whole evening was a twenty. Every course that was served was perfectly timed and the food presented beautifully. The taste of the multiple courses were beyond delicious. The courses took me out of my comfort zone and then in return gave me a culinary experience. Without a doubt, it was the best tenderloin I've ever had. The smoked trout...... oh my gawd! The staff were their normal friendly and efficient selves. They make the dinner that much better. Thanks to you all!

    I had the burger and it was the best burger I had since I lived in Alberta. I forget who the young lady we had as a waitress but she was amazing and very friendly. I would give this place an 11 out of 10 if it was even possible.

    My friend and I have been regulars since they opened in 2022, so we couldn’t pass up a chance to try the Menu Prix Fixe Chef Brad was offering for January 23 - 25. The starter was either a bowl of the daily soup or a panzanella salad. We both chose the tomato basil soup, which was served with a warm roll. The flavours were a delight to the taste buds. The middle was meatball pesto with house-made meatballs, marinara sauce, parmesan and pesto drizzle, also served with a warm roll. Again, the blending of flavours made this a very enjoyable entrée. The meal ended with sticky toffee pudding with ice cream on top, strawberry slices, blackberries, blueberries and a salted caramel drizzle. This was just the right size and not heavy after a bigger meal. We also enjoyed a glass of wine and a decaf coffee. Tilly’s staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu. Our server Delaney started with the wine offering of the day, and once we settled on that, went on to explain the menu choices in detail. As I’ve stated before, the old-world charm of this once Bed and Breakfast makes dining here a very enjoyable experience.

    I treated my partner to a birthday dinner. The food was simply delightful, and the service was next to none. We had appetizers, tomato basil soup, marinated squid, & oysters on the half shell. For entrees we had the beef tenderloin & chicken/ chorizo. To finish, because we were almost too full for dessert, we shared the truffles & port. Perfect amount to finish the meal. I would highly recommend Tilly’s to anyone looking to have a quality meal in a comfortable atmosphere. And…. There was even a birthday card waiting on the table when we arrived, signed by the Tilly’s team . It’s the little things 💕 Outstanding experience.

    Service was excellent. Food was really really awful. Even the burger had unknown awful sauce on it. Everything has a strange tomato undertone. Won’t be back there.
    Tilly’s KitchenResponded on January 20, 2024
    Hi Nicole, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I truly wish you had raised your concerns with us when you were here. We could have suggested we steam your Atlantic Mussels in white wine and garlic rather than the smoked tomato sauce. The Grilled Atlantic Salmon entree with vegetables, smoked tomato sauce, and corn salsa can also be substituted to not include the tomato components. This is our first 1-star rating for food, and as a small business owner, I would very much appreciate the opportunity to make things right. I can be reached at contact@tillyskitchen.ca

    Amazing food, the noise was a bit loud but that can’t be helped. The music was amazing and a great volume, it was just the noise of people chattering around us. They probably loved it too! The food and everything was amazing. They were amazing about my allergy, I didn’t care so much but they took it very seriously. We got a full course, appetizer, main, and a coffee for dessert. The alcohol was mixed wonderfully and the waitstaff was absolutely amazing. So friendly and helpful with everything. Would highly recommend to anyone!
