Rhubarb is directly in front of the Oceanstone Resort. 8650 Peggy’s Cove Road, Indian Harbour, NS B3Z 3P4902-821-3013

If you want fresh, locally-sourced food served in a casual atmosphere among friends, Rhubarb is it. We absolutely loved the portabella burger. The atmosphere is oh so comfortable.  We all enjoyed our meal, and the service was amiable, fast and plain old just great. When the weather just right, sit on the porch and enjoy the beauty of the ocean and the surrounding area.
