Inside The Pearl Eatery

Welcome to The Pearl Eatery

The Pearl Eatery is now closed for the 2016 season.

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 Pearl opened her doors in 2007 after a year of thoughtful renovation. 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.

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!

Sophisticated food in a lovely venue.

We stumbled on this restaurant when another was full and they were able to accommodate us without reservations. The food was simply excellent. We are looking forward to our next trip to PEI. This restaurant is a destination to count on.


Inventive but approachable food cooked perfectly.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal experience with our daughter at The Pearl. The staff accommodated our last minute reservation and the service was very friendly and attentive but not hovering. This dining experience was the best we had on our PEI vacation. Inventive but approachable food cooked perfectly. There was no comparison to the other places we visited on the island.
