Staying at any of the Prince Edward Island accommodations may be a great idea if you are an absolute foodie. While you are here, you will not fail to notice the extensive farm lands and large fishing docks across the island that churn out fresh produce of potatoes, strawberries, raspberries as well as large quantities of lobsters and oysters, respectively. Go for a Prince Edward Island vacation rental situated close to where the numerous culinary festivals happen. Festivals like the Fall Flavours and the Shellfish Festival encourage the visitors to try out the eccentric island's cuisine. If nothing else, do try out the local cuisine at the restaurants.
Water Prince Corner Shop
This tiny eatery in Charlottetown is one of the favorite eating joints on the island. The décor is informal and very comfortable and you feel at home. While here, try the Prince Edward special mussels. This place is renowned for the fresh fish; even the Fish and Chips preparation is delicious. The lobsters are also worth a try.
Boat Shop Steak and Seafood Restaurant

The Pilot House
Run by Chef Guy LeClair, the Pilot House features an extensive menu that is simply great to the palate.
