I had went to this place for supper with my family and it was great our only issue was they had someone singing whom was obviously tone deaf. Great food and excellent service.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner as guests of some friends from Germany and another couple. The food is above average and the atmosphere and ambiance are indicative of what will be a very delicious meal. This is fine dining at it's best. There are several choices for appetizers and the members of our party each had something different so we were... More

While staying on Isle Madame we were looking for some place a little 'upscale' to celebrate a birthday - wine, good food, all that. Best bet, after a bit of searching, looked to be the Bras D'or Lakes Inn. We were lucky, too, as the dining room was closing in a few days (seasonal). Lovely, rustic decor, view of the... More

After a week in Nova Scotia we have had a definite low for steamed lobster dinner. How do you get burnt lobster claws. What self respecting kitchen would send that to the dining room. Exorbitant price to boot.

My wife and I are regular diners at the Inn but this night was "special". They have the "La table et le droit" which is a three course special. Tonight it was Halibut and chef Jean Pierre cooked it superbly as usual.
