The Pearl an eclectic eatery

The Pearl is an eclectic eatery located between the picturesque fishing village of North Rustico and Cavendish Beach on PEI’s North shore. VIEW MAP


There is a love of detail that shows up not only in the food, but in the artwork and creative ambiance of The Pearl, which offers casual fine dining in this serene rural setting. The constant evolution of the menu draws it’s inspiration from the many farmers and fishers who supply the restaurant with local Island produce.

Evening at The Pearl

Maxine Delaney has owned and operated The Pearl since its inception in 2007. Her passion for the restaurant industry was developed through her involvement in opening and operating restaurants in PEI, Halifax and Vancouver. A background in the film industry as well as fashion design, show up in the ever changing décor and ambient energy of the room.


Maxine did much of the renovation on The Pearl herself, with friends offering helping hands. The slate tiles on the countertops and floor of the bay window were salvaged from the roof of a Cardigan Estate formerly owned by Dr. Alexander Best, whose father Charles is of insulin fame. The beautiful wide wood moldings around the bay window came from Westwood, a Charlottetown Estate demolished in 1980. Everything in the room has a story.

We believe that sipping a glass of wine and sharing a meal that is fresh, creative and visual, in a beautiful, ambient setting, is simply the way it should be.
