This is my favourite restaurant on Cape Breton Island. Never have I had a bad meal and I've eaten there many times. The only downside is you may have to wait for a table but it is well worth the wait.

First night in north Sydney, and we were recommended to this restaurant by our bed and breakfast host. It was a small little restaurant, but the food was great and the service was amazing.

We went during a holiday and the place was jammed packed...But that didn't stop them from providing us with great service. We didn't have a reservation but we were seated within 20 minutes.
