"Charming & Delicious"

Chef Ron did an amazing job accommodating for us as vegans. We had the vegetable chickpea curry, veggie lentil soup and vegan peanut butter cups. Beautiful vibe and amazing food. What more could you ask for?

"Locally Sourced, Fresh Food "

The food at Go Bistro was outstanding, and you pay for what you get: locally sourced, fresh food by excellent chefs at a small local restaurant.

~ Emily, Halifax

"Best Seafood I've Had"

The restaurant was amazing. Delicious homemade bread, gnocchi, and the best seafood I’ve had. We got to know the chefs Nicole and Ron, and they even made my favourite dish lamb shank. It was cooked to absolute perfection.

"Exquisitely Delicious"

The bistro onsite was the best meal we had in all of Cape Breton. The food was fresh and exquisitely delicious. I would highly recommend eating there.
