  Halifax: Former Fireside restaurant
by pieter_jan_v

Can you believe that I almost forget to visit this restaurant after being 6 weeks in Halifax. Even in such a short time you build up habits and taken shortcuts to Spring Garden Road and missing al the fun The Fireside has to offer. Well it's a fabulous basement place with a cosy bar section and even cosier dining section hidden behind the bar. Great service Halifax-style and something to return once a week.

Revisited in 2006 and had a great dinner on the upper floor. New was a security guy at the frontdoor. It lost some of its cosyness, but the food still was great (mmm, onion soup!).

2016 update: I was triggered by local member tvor. The restaurant is no more. It's completely gone. The website just said: Error establishing a database connection. Clear enough (and sad).
