    »China Town

    There is no actual Chinatown area in Halifax, so this large restaurant gets all the fame with the name. It's a short drive from the downtown area, north on the Bedford Highway. A large patio overlooks the Bedford Basin and the restaurant's own dock. The menu tries to cater to all types of Chinese food-lovers, so there are a few hot dishes sprinkled in with your basic deep-fried shrimp and broccoli-beef. The combination platter for two, which includes egg rolls and soup, is a hefty meal; all portions are generous. Timings vary for public holidays, call ahead for details.

    »Highlife Cafe

    Here is a great little place for a meal, from breakfast to dinner. The decor invites exploration and you'll be hopping up from the table now and then for a closer look at the drums, or perhaps or the beautiful suit for sale and hanging in the corner. The food is delicious African cuisine that will transport you straight to the deserts of the continent even while in the chilly weather of Canada. Try the curried chicken and beef stew or, for the vegetarians, plantain and rice. Portions are generous and the fire from the hot sauce can be quenched with a bit of mango juice if you go overboard.

The sparkling nighttime Halifax skyline provides all you need in the way of atmosphere, and there is a terrace. MacAskill's specializes in fresh seafood and a top-flight wine list.

    »La Perla

    Take the ferry across the water to Dartmouth for a memorable experience in fine dining.
