Absolutely disgusting! A small soup $6.99 (3/4-1 cup) and a large soup $10.99 (1 1/2-1 3/4 cups). They served it with dry, very thinly sliced bread. Served in bowls that almost took your appetite away just looking at them wondering how clean are these dishes....More

The restaurant is an interesting idea by bringing you back to the settlers time. However the food was pricey and service was not very attentive or friendly.

While in the forteress, you hate to experience traditional 18th century food and athmosphere. Excellent food, good and friendly service.

Okay, it is 1740 and food is served simply and quickly. Sharing a table with strangers gives you a chance to meet someone new. And the only utensil is……a spoon. A rather large spoon. Dig in.

We only had a short time before our guided tour, but the waitress was exceptionally helpful. The fish soup was like nothing I had eaten before, but I hadn't eaten in an 18th Century tavern before. It was quite substantial and tasted really good.

Nice variety of traditional style meals. The cod dinner was terrific (and I'm not a fish fan). It's a fun environment with table sharing among diners. Service was quick and as always at Louisbourg, bilingual. It's a memorable experience when at the fortress.
