About Us

OVERVIEW

Chives Canadian Bistro is conveniently located in beautiful historic downtown Halifax at 1537 Barrington Street. The restaurant boasts a warm and unpretentious décor where you will enjoy extraordinary casual dining in a chic interior that captures key elements of the Canadian landscape; water, wood, rock, and sand. Join us for dinner and you will discover how our urban café décor introduces elements of traditional French urban bistros with long banquet seating, richly painted walls, and chalkboard menus.

Another key feature of our restaurant is The Vault, a leftover from the 1950’s when our space was occupied by The Bank of Nova Scotia. The actual money vault now stores our wine as well as a unique and intimate dining space.
