A Magnificent 4.5-Star Destination Along Cape Breton's Cabot Trail

Four-Course Fine Dining

Advance Reservations only

Are you looking for a personal dining experience? A special time to relax in a quiet candle-lit atmosphere soaking in the last rays of the sunshine as it reflects on the Lake. The perfect meal at the end of a busy day comes to mind – and there it is before you, delicious, from the home baked rolls you never have time to make to the finishing touch of a dessert to remember.

We provide fine dining for the convenience and enjoyment of our guests. We are not a full-service restaurant as we are small and serve only one selection each evening.

The first couple to book dinner and choose a single menu will decide the menu for that evening.

We have one seating promptly at 7 pm.

$65 per person plus applicable tax. Gratuity not included.

Guests are welcome to bring their own wine (no corkage fee). We do not sell wine.

Please Note:

We require a minimum of 72 hours advance notice for meal reservations: 1-866-929-2721. Substitutions may be necessary due to availability.

We do not serve dinners on Wednesdays or Sundays.
