Needed somewhere to grab dinner with a group of girlfriends in Margaree Harbour. Decided to not drive too far so made reservations at the Island Sunset Resort. The service was good, the food was amazingly good. Had the scallops which were excellent. Would highly recommend!!!!

We visited this Restaurant and had a delicious dinner. The menu was varied and offered some great seafood choices. The staff was so friendly. They visited with us and told us about some different activities that we should visit while there.

Excellent seaside dining, prolly the best in the Belle Cote/Margaree Valley area. Welcome was very warm, service is sterling and attentive w/o being overbearing. Scenery is fantastic, esp. in the evening. Food is superbly prepared, but shockingly expensive. Mahalo! Robby of Maui & Friends

Ridiculously bland and boring food, from the uninspired bread basket (squishy baguette from the supermarket) to the NOT crispy "crispy Caesar salad" with store bought croutons to the salmon main course who came on a dirty plate and was accompanied by some bland green beans,...More

This is a great place for enjoying a high quality dinner out while you take in views of the ocean. The food is fresh and tasty and the service is really good. The seafood chowder was delicious. The portions are pretty good, and the price...More
