We enjoyed dining at this restaurant on the water. The food is delicious and menu is varied, with offerings other than seafood available. Seafood is available, of course. They actually served vegetables, which we always miss while traveling. Would certainly dine there again. Ask for table by window with water view and make a reservation for that.

We stopped in here on our way back to our hotel. The place was packed, and you couldn't get in without a reservation. But the hostess was accommodating every client she could, by seating them at the bar, or asking them if they would wait a short period of time. I had fish and chips and my husband had a... More

We ate at this restaurant years ago when we were touring Cabot Trail, so we decided to try it again. Food is very good. I had scallops and my husband had a seafood pasta dish. Service was excellent and staff very friendly.

Everything was closing for the season so we were happy to find a place for dinner. Not everything on the menu was available but what we did have was lovely.The seafood chowder was a very generous portion and really quite delicious. The bacon wrapped scallops were okay..would have been better without the maple syrup sauce. Our mains were pan fried... More

We'd called ahead and were advised that the restaurant was about to close for the season very shortly so, a road trip to Cheticamp was in order for us and a couple of friends. Not ironically the restaurant overlooks Cheticamp Harbour and a small marina which we'll add to our memory banks in case we ever find ourselves sailing up... More

We were shown to a table by the window with a good view over the ocean while we had our evening meal. Our meal of seafood special had included in the price an apple pudding with caramel sauce which made the meal very good value.

Seafood chowder was good but we had better in Halifax. Fish was good. A gentleman played music during our meal but because we were close it was much too loud. Nice environment for some with views of the harbor. Service was average.
