My wife and I tour a children's show to schools and visit maritime Canada every few years. Over the past year, we've had the fortune of touring Cape Breton twice. The first time, hunger and few choices drove us to Main Street restaurant in Ingonish. We had lobster and fish of the day. Both were excellently cooked with fitting sides... More

This little gem in Cape Breton is a "must stop" if you are traveling in this beautiful area. Not only do they have wonderful homemade pastries and pies (I got a slice of the wild blueberry pie, which was to die for!), but also feature the best seafood meal I've ever eaten. I'm a seafood "nut", so this is high... More

I am not a "foodie", but for the first time in my life, I wish I had taken a picture of this meal. Picture a large plate with angel hair pasta centered and covered with a perfectly cooked 1/2 Lobster. The Lobster body is filled with a marinera sauce comprised of numerous islands of scallops and shrimp. Surrounding the Lobster... More

This restaurant was recommended by our resort. We arrived close to closing time but were warmly greeted and never felt rushed. Fantastic seafood dish with pasta, we would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Very reasonably priced. Come hungry for large portions.

We enjoyed this place for really fresh seafood and lots of choice. Ask about the catch of the day because it really is. Check out the bakery counter for dessert.

Our hotelier recommended this restaurant and we couldn't have been happier. It's nothing fancy inside or out, but our meal was memorable. Steamed snow crab fresh from Bay St. Lawrence, done to perfection and served with drawn butter and a large spinach salad. My wife was in heaven. I opted for the baked halibut in a light pernod cream sauce... More

We walked down from our B&B which was nearby. Very busy place. Our waitress, Margaret, was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was excellent. My wife had their signature dish, the angel hair pasta with seafood and it was fantastic. We would recommend this place to all.

AMAZING! I had the angel hair lobster pasta dish and it was delicious! Beautiful presentation with mussels all around the edge of the bowl. Scallops were tender and tasty. We will be telling our friends about this place and will definitely be back!

We like to sample local beer, wine, and food wherever we go and this place fit the bill on the local food and wine. We each had a glass of Jost red and white wine along with a lovely crusty baguette with our snow crab legs, which were quite fresh and tasty. My husband had the chocolate explosion cheesecake for...
