  • I like this area, there were a lot of fun things to do. Some excellent restaurants as well as shopping. Don't miss out on the Ice cream store in the back of the boardwalk too.  more »

  • Beautiful way to see Halifax. Great restaurants cafe, museum, rent a bike. Go see the old streets of Halifax. You have old buildings mixed in with the new. Public gardens are beautiful. The new library is awesome and a must see. Visit the old City Hall. St. Mary cathedral is beautiful. So much to see
  • A great place to go spend an evening or afternoon walking around when there's not an event going on. Almost always has some type of music going (street performers) and food to be had (via trucks/stands). Plenty of benches if you get a little tired or just happen to want to enjoy the harbour breeze while you eat a beaver tail. When there *is* an event going on, it's still fun, since now you get to enjoy the crowds and new sights! My favorite is when the Tall Ships come in. Second favorite is when the Buskers Festival kicks off. There's just so many cool performances!
  • Us and the kids had a great time walking around enjoying all the things to do. Cool little shops and things to eat. The wave was probably the most fun.
  • Great to walk. Great restaurants. Great concession stands in the summer. Excellent for all ages. Great play areas for kids and adults. Excellent 3km view of the harbour, great to walk and there is a lot of places to rest and take in the view.
  • This was my first visit to Halifax and believe it or not after 31 years of marriage and 40 years after immigrating to Canada there are still somethings that surprise me. One thing that was not a surprise to me was the friendliness of the people and more over the welcoming nature of all the restaurants we visited. I was informed before my visit of the nature of those from the Atlantic cost but WOW my meal at the Halifax Waterfront restaurant was second to none. My wife and I shared the crab fritters, bacon wrapped scallops and oysters for dinner. All the dishes were impeccably prepared with one small exception the first round of scallop although great was a little overcooked. My wife and I discussed this while we had the rest of our dinner but before we had an opportunity to make our conversation known to the waitress that was not only great and well versed in her craft the chef had already sent a second serving of the scallops to our table. This in my opinion is not only the mark of a great chef but an excellent judge of what a properly prepared scallop should look like and react to your customers needs before they even know their needs have not yet been met. I would without any reservations recommend the Halifax Waterfront as one of your lunch, dinner or desert stop on your visit to Halifax. This restaurant once again is a MUST on any visit near, around or to Halifax. Thank you Halifax Waterfront for making my first visit to Halifax a more memorable and special occasion based simple on service and a great meal.
