I and the family ate the best Halibut and Snow Crab ever. The kids asked us to take them back the next day to eat more snow crab. Everything else we ordered like some baked goods for dessert were also good.

Description
We are a family owned restaurant located in the center of Ingonish Beach, on the Cabot Trail. Due to our proximity to the ocean and freshly caught Lobster, Mussels and fish, we specialize in Seafood dishes, but also feature Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free options. We also have our own bakery with daily homemade bread, pies, pastries and bars. Again, with Gluten free options. Where and when possible we do our best to source our ingredients locally, to get the the freshest ingredients in our dishes. We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner 7 Days week. During peak season we are extremely busy, but, assure you, that you will be always be greeted with a smile and great service.
