Long Description:
The Bicycle Thief is a truly Italian restaurant which is capable of presenting a huge selection of seafood accompanied with a huge selection of pasta, all served with just the right sauces and garnishes. This is a place which truly loves food (they say so on their website). A small selection from their menu includes:
flash Fried Calamari in Calypso sauce; Atlantic Halibut in spiked Orange Marmalata lacquer; Cioppino - Italian Seafood Stew with Lobster, Jumbo Shrimp, Scallops, Mussels & Halibut sautéed with San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, fresh Herbs; Pistachio honey-crusted Atlantic Salmon; Home-grown Mussels sautéed with tomato, Caramelized onions, garlic, Basil pesto, White wine; Yellowfin Tuna Tartare with avocado, Sesame cucumber spaghetti, pickled ginger, Wasabi cream; Fettuccine all’Aragosta, N.S. Lobster, roasted garlic, San Marzano tomato, cream, Vino bianco, Parmigiano.
Definitely Italian and definitely a seafood lover's delight. Of course, they will also serve landlubber fare, such as beef, pork, wild boar, chicken and whatever else suits their fancy, but we're betting that most out-of-towners will opt for the seafood. They're right on the waterfront, how could the seafood be any fresher?

The Bicycle Thief offers both indoor and alfresco dining overlooking the harbour and a wine bar. A very popular establishment, the restaurant generally receives rave reviews for both the food AND the service. And NO, we still don't know how it came by its "slightly unusual" name.

The Bicycle Thief exudes a relaxed, come-as-you-are feel, in an atmosphere that blends Old School style with New School attitude. Drop by for lunch or supper, or pull up a chair to our wicked wine bar for a fantastic glass from our titanic selection. The Bicycle Thief offers North American food with an Italian soul, and legendary cooking that will steal your heart…
