1. Bluenose II Restaurant

1824 Hollis Street, Downtown Halifax

"Ate here twice in a 4 day visit!"

"I travelled recently with my husband 2 1/2 year old and we ended up going to this place twice in our visits for a few different reasons.It was super close to our hotel so we could walk there easily, the restaurants also has mostly booths which I loved and we had a great area to the side where we could park the stroller.

Staff were super nice and really good with our son. I ordered the breakfast the one morning and the full lobster the next time which was well worth it!The [next] time we went we ordered a kids meal for our son which was only $5.00 and came with a lot of food so well worth it. My husband ordered the fish cakes and the first and chips the second time."

4. Piatto Pizzeria + Enoteca

1299 Hollis Street, Halifax

"Exceptional pizza!"

"This restaurant may have some of the best if not THE best pizza in town. The atmosphere is great, for couples, kids, groups, friends, etc. Service was good too!

There's a bar like sitting area that kids could watch them toss the pizza. I will return! Only complaint may be that they had no gelato and would benefit from a bigger wine list!
