As one of the premiere seafood restaurants in Halifax and still going strong, you should expect a special experience at Five Fishermen, starting with the mussel and salad bar---complementary with every main course---and one of the great wine lists in Halifax. They boast “from the sea to the skillet in the same day,” which speaks to the freshness of the fish and the flavour. Finally, you should know that even though the ground floor is going through renos---the new Five Fishermen Bar & Grill to open soon---they’re still serving the fish upstairs.
