“Best restaurant meal in a month of travelling!”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

We stayed in Pubnico for two nights at the lovely Yesteryear B & B. We had two wonderful dinners at the Red Cap Restaurant, the best food we ate in a month. We could hardly believe the
quality of our dinners in this relatively rural area. Wish we could go back tonight! The
restaurant closes early, around 7 pm, so don't miss it.

The rooms were basic but very clean. I had a quiet and restful sleep.There are not many places to eat in West Pubnico, but the Red Cap Motel turned out to have a nice restaurant with tasty food. I would recommend the Red Cap for reasonably priced rooms and good food.

We loved this little restaurant,. We were on our way up the 103 when we needed to stop to feed our little girl. We saw the restaurant advertised in the Taste of Nova Scotia 2012 culinary adventure guide. We didn't stay at the hotel but the restaurant is well worth getting off the highway!

The Chef here is a young lady named Amy Scott, and her food is on par with any fine dining restaurant, anywhere.
I have been a Chef for almost forty year, and while I do not know who trained this Chef, "they done good" and should be very proud.
Wonderfully presented and perfectly seasoned, and do not leave without trying a dessert. The read pudding with a citrus infused simple syrup is something worth the trip.
My only concern is the early closing times, but this Chef is bound for big things, she is that darn good!!!

We stayed overnight and had dinner that night - wonderful food, very comfortable room, and best of all, they sent us a Thank You note for visiting them! Am now planning a visit during tourist season so we can enjoy the Acadian Village experience! This is how success is built!!!

The Red Cap Restaurant is both "a quaint, out-of-the-way place" and a venue that offers top-qualtiy, complex, gourmet fare. This is a (French) Arcadian fishing village and the traditional Acadian RAPPIE PIE (featuring roasted chicken) is incredible. So too the seafood -- especially the haddock with lobster sauce, seafood lasagna (with haddock, scallops and lobster) and hot crab dip. Wednesday nights during the summer there is live, local musical entertainment so expect longer waits. Great blueberry pie (in season) too. Staff is very friendly and utterly without pretensions. The motel next door is clean and economical. This is the perfect restaurant for any traveller looking to experience genuine, local, small-village Nova Scotian culture.

We had a great stay at the Red Cap Motel. We would definitely stay there again. It was very clean, quiet, comfortable. We were going to a wedding in the area and the motel was highly recommended. We would highly recommend it.
