A friend and I made reservations here looking for a nice Saturday night dinner. What a charming place! We were served a simple but flavourful meal focused on fresh, local ingredients. Desserts were exquisite (try the chocolate potato cake and bread pudding!). The wine list is extensive with multiple local choices. The owners were beyond welcoming and absolutely lovely. Would...

I will start by saying have good directions and plenty of time before you head here. We have been pretty disappointed with the food so far in N.S. other than great seafood. What a relief to sit down and enjoy food crafted from the freshest ingredients and presented without being overly sauced. Just let the food speak for itself. As... More

Wonderful inn but the food is the star! Best dinner we had in Nova Scotia, and we ate very well there.

It took some driving, but we were happy to have decided to have dinner at the Chantrelle. The food was excellent. Unfortunately, there are not many really good restaurants on the Cabot Trail, but this is definitely an exception.

Just to clarify, this wonderful restaurant/inn is not located in Baddeck. It is about 25km away located in St. Ann's. I just wanted to point this out, as we were walking around Baddeck and searched on Trip Advisor this place came up and so we made reservations (which is a must). We continued about our day and when it came... More

The Inkeepers at the Water's Edge Inn in Baddeck told us about this restaurant which is overlooks St. Ann's Harbour. What's special about this restaurant, besides it's spectacular locvation on the Cabot Trail, is that everything they cook and cook with is sourced within 100 miles of the restaurant. A charming small inn on the top of a steep hill,... More

We stayed at the inn as well as had dinner there. It is a very quiet relaxing place. The meals both dinner and breakfast were outstanding, well above the standards of other more expensive meals we have had recently. Well worth the visit.

We just enjoyed a most relaxing and satisfying dining experience on September 10 at Chanterelle Country Inn located 36 km north of Badeck along the Cabot Trail. The menu identifies the 20 local sources for all of the organic food. Owner Earlene Busch was a charming hostess. We started off with cocktails in the cozy den and then moved to... More

With so much of the dining fare in Cape Breton geared towards bus tours discovering the Chanterelle Restaurant was a rare and delightful find! Here the service is individual and refined. The owner and her assistant (Earlene and Keith) go out of their way to attend to your dining delights while offering a very homey and personalized service. The menu... More

I have a summer home down Cabot Trail from the Chanterelle Inn, this was the first time I had eaten at the Inn. It was remarkable. My nephew is a chef from Boston and is a food snob--he loved his beet and blueberry salad, lobster bisque, leg of lamb and bread pudding. My meal was also fabulous. The local ingredients... More
