Welcome to The Pearl Eatery

Now CLOSED for the 2018 season.  Thank you to all who shared their time and stories with us.  We look forward to welcoming you again next season Beginning in June!

The Pearl Eatery is located between the picturesque fishing village of North Rustico and Cavendish Beach on Prince Edward Island’s North Shore. Once you set foot into this award winning eatery, it becomes apparent why it has become a destination restaurant not to be missed.

  The eclectic décor is a collection of old and new. Everything has a story. Original artwork is bought and sold, allowing change that compliments the evolving menu. A collection of tables precisely meets the needs of each space, tucked with chocolate leather chairs. It is a room that keeps the senses engaged.

Chef can be seen collecting herbs and edible flowers from the garden just off the kitchen door, while farmers, fishers and foragers come and go, leaving a bounty of local ingredients from which the menu evolves. The Pearl strives towards excellence, with the philosophy that sharing a meal that is fresh and creative is simply the way it should be.

  • “New Owner has maintained quality and Experience”

    We last reviewed this restaurant in 2014, and eat here at least once a season. Four of us chose different entrees and split salads and desserts. All choices were presented beautifully and judged delicious! The amuse bouche was an added treat. This restaurant has yet to be surpassed by any for fine dining on PEI!


  • AMAZING!!!

    The restaurant is small and intimate with wonderful decor. Each course was fresh, well presented and oh so good. Our wait staff, Victoria, was outstanding. This was one of those special, memorable dining experiences that we will never forget!

  • A true gem in Cavendish

    Delicious food, great service, very interesting décor, coffee served in local pottery mugs, and you can often see the chef picking things from the garden to be used in your meal!
