Simple and wonderful

The seafood was local and flavorful. It was artistically presented and the service was great. The view from the dining room was beautiful in any kind of weather.

We did not stay at the cottages but decided to have dinner at the restaurant. We requested reservations and were provided a menu several days prior to our arrival for pre-ordering our dinner, a choice of a two or three course meal. We arrived at the small restaurant with about a dozen tables to find a quaint atmosphere with nice... More

The breakfast came with our stay at the hotel and I was very satisfied with my meal both mornings. The coffee was excellent.

When we stayed at Seascape Coastal Inn, one of the perks was a breakfast included in the price. The breakfast is only served at certain hours, however, the staff will tell you when it is. The breakfast I had was an omelet with fresh ingredients, toast, home fries and coffee. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. The breakfast lasted... More

This restaurant is no longer open to the public. Guests at the Seascape cottages can book a table but have to do so in the morning and choose their meal selections when booking. That was fine by us and translated into a delicious meal with seamless service and spectacular food. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't dine there the... More

Stopped in while touring the Cabot Trail. Had the lobster club and it was packed with lobster let's just say I was not disappointed at all! The staff was very friendly and attentive. The outside area was super busy as everyone wanted to go there. When my party arrived there was not a space outside for us. Staff told us... More

Stayed at one of the cottages. Enjoyed generous daily breakfasts and dinners were so good that we ate here everyday. The owners go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need and ask if there is something you would like if not on the menu. Wonderful hosts and food.

My husband and I enjoyed a good meal here but found the portion sizes a little small. We were hungry travelors and really needed just a little more on our plates. We eat out a lot and would rate the food as average but the view as spectacular. The staff was friendly.

we ate there once, and i think i will never go back. They pretend to be a "fine cuisine" restaurant… how they can call them a "fine cuisine" restaurant when the fish and chip i had was less good than the one i got in a fast food for half the price? How then can pretend to be a "fine... More
