Chefs Renee and Barbara specialize in Haute cuisine, a very high-end French cooking.Acute attention to detail is employed in all aspects from the private dining rooms to the menu and the table settings...Thank you to two beautiful people who could be rocking it in the city and choose to share their experience and creative culinary genius in rural Maine in a beautiful atmosphere. We enjoyed ourselves so much on our anniversary that we decided to celebrate my husbands birthday here as well. Again the wife and I went to the Canterbury Royale, this time for our 21st anniversary. I say there is no place that will outdo Barb, and Renee for service, and taste.
From the amazing soup, the exquisite hand rolled croissants, lobster Thermidor and rack of lamb, the food was just perfect.
You will fall in love with the shifts and leave wishing you could start the evening over again I have been fortunate enough to eat in fine dining restaurants from Spain to San Diego, but I’ve never been in a place where the food was not simply served, but sung - and by two of the most gracious and unassuming ladies you will ever meet. One of the top fine dining experiences we have ever had.
We travel places, just for culinary "experiences" and then plan the rest of our trip around that.
We had no idea that this amazing restaurant was literally in our "back yard", across the USA border in Fort Fairfield, ME!
You will have to make a reservation but it is well worth the wait.
We were so glad we went and we will be BACK and I will tell everyone I see how amazing this place is. We could never have imagined such a class act tucked away in Northern Maine-we are very lucky!
