“Lovely local fare.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were lucky to pop in to this restaurant. Just visiting in town, and looking for a nice lunch, and I saw there were lots of people inside, so we popped in. It was obviously a choice for the locals, and we were very happy to see a section devoted to Cape Breton specialities. We had the fish cakes and seafood chowder. The fish cakes came with a chow (green tomato relish... which was better than mine). It tasted like a nice home-made meal. Sure, the fish cakes could have had a bit more fish, but they were fluffy, well seasoned and nicely done. The service was excellent, friendly people! I would definitely recommend this place to others visiting this area.

“Our favourite place to eat in 'the Port'!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

We lived in Cape Breton for 3 years and had many wonderful meals at the Fleur-de-Lis. The staff were always friendly and attentive and the food was great. Prices were reasonable too. It was our "go to" place for a quick bite or a nice long lunch. We often went their for our work lunch break and could be back to work in good time. I miss this little place and it will be one of our first stops when we get back "home"!!
