We ate here twice during our 6 day stay in Cape Breton during Celtic Colours, and the fiddle music was right up there with what we heard in the concerts. The food was great too, this was our favorite place in Cheticamp. They have great hot chocolate (ask for it with Rum!), and the chowder, mussels, and other seafood dishes... More

My party of 3 ate at this restaurant during the height of the Celtic Colours festival. The service was friendly and quick even though the restaurant (mid sized) was packed when we got there (though we didn't have to wait for a table). All three of us enjoyed our meals as well as the free live musicians that were playing... More

Our mini road trip around the Cabot Trail in early October saw us spending 2 nights in the Cheticamp area. We chose the All Aboard based on Trip Advisor Reviews which our B&B Hosts supported. We were not disappointed. The entertainment was excellent as was the service and food. Mussels for two reasonably priced and fresh. Fishcakes were very good,... More

Very nice place. The food (pan fried haddock and mussels) was excellent and we very much enjoyed the life music by a trio of talented musicians.

We stopped in randomly at this restaurant. The hostess was fantastic! She offered us the special (crab cakes, rice, and veggies for $13.99), and answered any questions we had about the menu. She suggested dessert and coffee at the end of our meal and it was well worth it - the strawberry shortcake is amazing! And gigantic! There is live... More

Okay, I went on the advise of friends and double checked trip advisor. This place did not disappoint. From June to October they have live entertainment every night 6 to 9 pm. That made the night what a nice touch! The service was spot on, we were there with friends and all enjoyed their meal. We were to full for... More

We ate here twice ...which says something on itself!! I had haddock pan fried both nights the first night it came with oven roasted potatoes that were more like deep fried but the fish was excellent. The second night I had the same dish and it was even better with big pieces of very fresh pan fried haddock and real... More

I had hoped to experience some real Acadian music on our trip and an evening here provided that. The atmosphere was friendly and lively. The food was quite good also, although for the kids, I would have hoped that milk or juice would have been options for their meals; more nutritious than the kool-aid they were offered. We enjoyed the... More

This place was a real gem! Not only was the food great (good portion size) but the local guitar and fiddle player were UNBELIEVABLE!!! We tried a number of the menu items and sat there for over two hours listening to the wonderful music! The ambiance and decor are not fancy but the staff is friendly, making for a fabulous... More
