It was a dark drive in and out of this restaurant but it was worth it. The service was exceptional and the meal was delicious. We tried to go back for breakfast the next day but it was, unfortunately, closed. In the morning, you could see the view of the ocean which was pretty spectacular.

There is not a lot available in the area as far as dining goes so if you are staying at the resort you might as well give the restaurant a try. All in all it wasn't bad, a very nice fresh Caesar salad but the rack of lamb just seemed to be lacking something. A seasoned crust, grill marks, something,... More

Although we made a reservation with a window view of the ocean, all the tables were reserved when we arrived. During our meal which ended near the closing time, a number of the reserved tables were never occupied. The salmon was cooked perfectly but the vegetables were not fresh. The bread selection was freshly baked. Although the desert was supposed... More

The location cannot be beat...such a lovely view of water and the sunset. Unfortunately for us, our party of four was not seated by a window, but rather closer to entrance near a very large and loud party of guests, which made it difficulty to converse across our own table. The food, however, was excellent. The multi-course dinner, which my... More

Upscale restaurant along the waterfront which serves decent food that doesn't mimic the fried seafood, fries, and coleslaw served at every other restaurant on Cape Breton. Enjoy a meal while watching the waves just yards away from their windows. Be aware, however, that they charge $4 per person if there is a musician playing between the bar area and the... More

A slightly more upscale restaurant on the Cabot Trail but quite reasonably priced. Very friendly and attentive staff, great view of the water and the sunset. Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their meal. Salmon, snow crab and lobster haddock were all fabulous. You have to try the desserts.

We tried this place on a whim because we were hungry and saw the sign as we drove by. It's part of a resort complex near Margaree Harbour. Perhaps because we had no prior expectations, we were pleasantly surprised by our experience. This facility is a cut above the diners and restaurants typically seen along the Cabot Trail. The decor... More

We had a delicious meal here and were there for the 8:30 spectacular sunset. The food was all very good and featured local seafood, along with a complete bar menu.

I visited the Island Sunset Resort Restaurant in August 2016 for their Steak & Ale Special. Tuesday nights feature this special along with fiddle music. There is a $4pp cover charge and the steak special is $24 for steak + baked potato (or fries or rice) + veggies + a beer (or wine). The waitress we had was FANTASTIC (sorry!... More
