An amazing collage of wonderful moments ...... steep gravel country drive to the top, delightful views from the walking paths off the parking lot, meander down to "base" camp (wear walking shoes.....flip flops work but are hard on your toes), we visited at high tide, so amazing to watch Dory rip in action, wind buffeted as we gandered around the lighthouse (take a sweater), kids enjoyed the rock walk below the lighthouse and had their version of the Inukshuk constructed........best surprise = walking into a 'closed' resturant and welcomed by Chef Darcey...who then gave us a hearty welcome and a 3 item menu....amongst our group of 8, we tried all three dishes and all where fabulous......the bill was shockingly low for the wonderful meals consumed. Take the trip....its pleasantly different! Cheers to the Light House on Cape d'Or.

We decided to stop here for lunch on June 19,2013. Their voice message on their phone said that they opened May 21. So we drove the long and difficult road out to it (following part way a road grader). The view was indeed breathtaking. As we parked we saw some people eating at a picnic table near the parking lot. At the top of the trail was a sign that said, "Cafe below. Come on down!" We did. It is a long difficult climb for us seniors but we expected to have lunch at the bottom. What we found was a locked cafe with no sign. The windows were open and we walked all around but there was no one there (except for others looking for lunch too). I don't know the reason it was closed but they could at least have put a sign at the top of the trail saying that they were closed. The view did not really make up for the long drive and long difficult walk and no lunch!!

My family and I stayed the night in the Lighthouse Keepers House which was comfortable, clean and homey and we also enjoyed an amazing dinner with darcy in the "Kitchen". We received personal service tailored to exactly what we needed, partly because we were the only ones there that evening but mostly because of the attentiveness and skill of our host. My son was just turning the corner after having his wisdom teeth removed and was still a little sore and swollen. Darcy made sure to prepare a meal that he could enjoy but made no compromise on the quality, flavour and execution of the food. We didn't have to order, the meal was perfect and exactly what we wanted. The views are spectacular, and the comfortable the mood of the dining room compliment them perfectly. Dessert was wonderful but the real dessert was the sunset. We rose the next day to see the sunrise and enjoyed a breakfast that again anticipated our wants perfectly. to top it all off the prices are extremely reasonable. I've given the restaurant a $$ rating which means "causal sit down service", which in truth it is but the food and service are on par with most fine dining establishments I've gone to.

Hard to believe that the best chowder in all of Nova Scotia is right here! And ever more amazing, the chef is from Manitoba (shame on all the local chefs!). Short menus are the best! We all tried something different ... none of us were disappointed. Try the desserts ... lovely!

The lightkeeper's kitchen at Cape d'Or is being run by Darcy and family, providing a personable and attentive atmosphere. The food is fresh, local and seasonal. The view from the big windows overlooking the Cape and Lighthouse are breathtaking, with the sunsets being the icing on the cake.
