Shediac is the lobster capital of Canada, so I just had to know where was the best place to go! After some thorough research, we drove to Paturel’s Shore House.
I wanted my lobster fresh and dipped in butter. The waitress highly recommended it served cold instead of hot. I took her suggestion. Cold lobster comes off the shell super easily, so I didn’t have trouble getting the tasty globs of meat out. Even without the butter, it tasted like it was naturally salted by the sea. It was so good I sucked this thing bone dry (including the head!).
I also got half a dozen oysters which were reasonably priced at $12. These were smooth and like the lobster seasoned by the seas.
I couldn’t resist a caesar with my seafood. They did the classic drink justice.
I loved this place. All our food was delicious (we had a picky eater in our group that tried other non-lobster food). They had a lot of kitchy decorations but the overall feeling felt upscale and not entirely touristy. In fact, the people sitting the table beside us sold me beer at the liquor store a few hours before. You know this place is good when the locals go here too!
It was raining, otherwise we would’ve sat on the patio because this view was gorgeous:
This place is a must, if you’re looking to eat seafood in Shediac!
