Oysters and dining in PEI

tuttebene | Jul 24, 2011 04:43 AM

I'll be travelling to PEI again this summer for 5 days :)

I've been to PEI many times and I make Carr's a regular stop but I think they only have malpeques. Are there any other places with good fresh oysters and a larger variety? Upscale or casual will do. Are there any places that I may have visited but overlooked as good oyster choices - Merchantman, Gahan House, The Dunes,etc.?

I also plan to attend the Tyne Valley oyster festival for one day and would appreciate any advice on which events or day to target.

On this trip, I also want to explore dining options in Victoria by the Sea and would welcome recommendations for any type of food, not just oysters. For lobster suppers, I've only ever been to New Glasgow because it's so good but are there other destinations I should consider trying?

And I've come across the Fisheries dept. doing seafood demos in the past but I can't find any current information on the location of these demos this year. Can anyone help provide a schedule or link?

Suggestions and advice much appreciated!
