Business Details

The Canteen on Portland is a sixty seat restaurant located in a space once occupied by the Sun Sun Café - a family-run restaurant on Portland Street in Downtown Dartmouth for more than 40 years. 

Our restaurant offers a bright, cheerful space to enjoy a special occasion, a hand-crafted cocktail with friends, or a business lunch with colleagues.

We have created the restaurant to feel like a home away from home. With a large window looking into our kitchen, you can watch the culinary team working hard on our many dishes, while being taken care of by an experienced front of house team.
