Average food in a location with an incredible view.

The Atlantic Restaurant is a part of the iconic Keltic Lodge Resort. It is located in a different building than the Purple Thistle dining room in the main lodge, but the view is almost as spectacular.

Our experience at the Atlantic Restaurant was so bad, I was convinced we were on some candid camera show! First, the positives - the view is amazing and the very hard-working manager realized how bad things were going, not just with us but with every table, and tried to remedy the situation. We were staying at the Keltic Inn and... More

My husband and I were looking for a great place to eat after a round of golf at the Highland Links, we should have kept looking...... Although, the restaurant has a great view overlooking the ocean the quality of food was very disappointing. Everything we ordered was served luck warm and bland.

We stayed at the Keltic Lodge for one night, and the only dining room that was open was the Atlantic. We weren't hungry enough to have the buffet (at $24.95/person), so had fish & chips instead. It was OK at best, and vastly overpriced for what it was. Also passed up on their buffet breakfast ($19 per person) the next... More

We visited the Atlantic Restaurant recently and were very disappointed. It is a casual, buffet style restaurant and the only item that we felt was enjoyable was the fish chowder which was excellent. The rest of the food on offer had been in containers for some time and kept warm. The ham was tough, the salmon tasteless, the chicken had... More

One of the best lobster roll we have ever eaten and the lobster pot pie was delicious. The service was superb and we really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant.

We ordered simple foods, burger and fries, fish and chips and a sandwich and waited over an hour.....as we got our food they let us know our order got 'lost'. Maybe they could have mentioned that while we were waiting.....with empty glasses sitting in front of us. In the end my burger was delicious but I'd never go back. Also... More

We visited the Atlantic Lodge and dined at the Atlantic where Sherry Hawly was our attendant. There were a group of six of us who arrived just before 2 pm. No doubt our late arrival caused an inconvenience to Ms Hawly but her service was superb and if we caused her any trouble she didn't show it. She is a... More

This was one of the best places we found to eat in the Ingonish area in terms of price and quality. The restaurant feels a bit like a chow hall in the sense that it is one very large room with high ceilings and lots of tables. There are many, many windows. The view is good from anywhere in the...
