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.

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.

Romantic location for an evening dinner. Tables all have an ocean view. Great 5 course meal. Staff friendly and service was great! Would recommend.

I ordered hamburger and chips and my hamburg tasted like a frozen boxed pre made burger from a supermarket I would not order it again. The staff were wonderful and the place has an awesome view and clean. My food was very disappointing.

Not sure how this compares to New York restaurants, but I can assure you this is a decent place to eat, and one of the better meals we had in Cape Breton. We had a light lunch, and returned for dinner. Nice waterfront view as well.
