My husband and I wanted a relaxing dinner, so we opted to have our salads, mussels and wine outside on the patio while enjoying the sun as it was setting. Then we moved into the dining room to order our entrees. ( I didn't want all the food coming on top of each course so this worked out great and gave us a break to take in all our surroundings between apps and the main) The service was great, food was delicious. The mussels were yummy. Although the mussel broth is a secret, I figured out some of the key ingredients and our server confirmed that I was getting close, so I am going to try it out at home this weekend. This is the second time I had Jost Pinot Grigio in restaurants this summer and I have to say I am really enjoying it and will pick up a bottle to try at home with those mussels I am going to cook up this weekend. I think the Rusty Anchor is one of the few restaurants on Cape Breton that offers both an ocean view and the sunset from an outdoor patio. We usually eat here once per year but most often lunch time. Having the opportunity to stay in Pleasant Bay and enjoy an evening meal at the Rusty Anchor was a treat.
