The road to Lunenburg is a rainbow of rolling landscapes, weathered buildings and ocean views boasting postcard-perfect Maritime scenes. Lunenburg is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and Rime Restaurant + Wine Bar is the coin I added to this pot of gold, in May 2014.

Rime is named for the Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, chosen to pay tribute to the nautical and cultural nature of this World UNESCO Heritage town. At Rime, we love to swap stories with our guests, whether they are visiting for the first time or we know them by name, and with the farmers, fishers and producers who are behind each dish we serve.

Of course the food tells a story too – the story of the land, of the producers, the history of a region. Season to season, we are inspired by these stories and our flavours reflect that fresh, local, creative narrative.

Rime is a unique opportunity to enjoy friends, family, and memorable meals showcasing the best ingredients of Nova Scotia. We look forward to your visit.
