This has to be the best place to eat I think I've ever been. Chef was eccentric came and chatted and we had a laugh. Gave us some little extras for free. Superb

The restaurant was recommended by our host and it did not disappoint. The owners and the staff were warm and welcoming, the food was superb, and the service was unparalleled. If I lived in Cape Breton this would be my go to restaurant. The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection. Also, the decor was lovely and it was nice... More

The food was ok, nothing great, the place was dark and it's small. There is a sign on the front door which is always there and says that's it is full. They also complained about noise that a child made there which really sucked....not impressed at all.

Wow, wow, wow!! What an incredible restaurant! They say that success is never a how or a what, it's always a "who." Owner and chef, Richard, and his wife have created a place that not only serves incredible food, but delivers an amazing dining experience!! From the moment we were seated, you could feel that this place was different. Less... More

This little space is a hidden gem....the building is very unassuming to the point if your eye doesn't catch the sign you will miss it _ it doesn't look like much from the outside. There are not enough wonderful words to describe the food here. The food is prepared to perfection and the portions are perfect...Fish lovers delight but lots... More

One needs to know about this restaurant or know someone who does. It is off the main street and would be difficult to find without help. It sits very close to the water in a building that is not well marked. Once you get inside though, it is warm and inviting. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The menu... More

Fabulous restaurant, don't miss the lobster ravioli, it is fabulous as well as most of the entrees on their menu. Be sure to have a reservation or you probably won't be lucky enough to dine here.
