Friendly staff, attractive, dining room, great service, and a wide selection of food and the portion sizes of very generous. What I did not like? All the seafood had cheese and I am dairy intolerant, and the vegetables have zero flavour.

We walked in to a grumpy old lady. Scratch that. I can not call her a lady. We walked into the restaurant to be greeted by a grumpy old woman. The meal came in a reasonable amount of time. Dianne the waitress was very good....She tried to keep all tables under her care taken care of. I had surf And turf. The lobster was ok. The flavour of the steak was ok as well. It was done to perfection however the cut was inferior. It was riddled with connective tissue. My Long Island iced tea seemed to be very weak. I purchased an extra shot of both Vodka and rum to make it better. So on the whole I’d say in our experience, the food was ok. However under par for the prices of the meals.More

We had an excellent lunch with ocean views and friendly helpful staff. Then we found our car wouldn’t start and the same staff went out of their way to help us solve this problem. They found us a mechanic and an overnight place to stay...with smiles and words of encouragement all the way. A truly wonderful Cheticamp experience . We will be back when next we travel here from BC. We have a wonderful feeling about Cape Breton especially due to our grand experience at this restaurant.More

We enjoyed a yummy supper at the Harbour Restaurant. I had the haddock and it was delicious, with mashed potatoes and veggies. Our server was friendly and attentive. The view was perfect, overlooking the harbour and fishing fleet. Everyone (the staff) was very welcoming. I...wouldn’t hesitate to go back again.More

Greeted by a grumpy lady. The food was average. Looked like the lobster for the roll, came out of a can. Drinks were great. Pay at the bar as you leave. Didn't enjoy my dinner.

Our dinner was very, very good. We both got the haddock. What I found to be a little under par was the seafood chowder which was watery. The seafood itself was tasty but the lack of a thick chowder was disappointing.

Central location in Cheticamp and seating for our large family made uo choose this restaurant. There was a beautiful view at sunset, the service was excellent, and our meals were delicious! I enjoyed the cod and scrunchions, although the scrunctions were too hard to eat...easily. Nice mashed potatoes and a few veggies came with it.q My appetizer spinach dip came with more red, green and natural nachos than I would eat in a year. I felt badly about the waste. Our server was great. I passed on dessert because they did not have real whipping cream.More

recommended by our hotel, and sadly coming only 4 hours after a gluttony fest at The Doryman lounge up the street...but everyone else in our group had second dinner and we all enjoyed it. As is typical for the Cabot Trail, the waitress was delightful,...worked with us on our orders and the check(S). I had seafood chowder and a salad, trying to eat light...and both were very good. I find the chowders up here different (and IMHO better) than chowder back home in Maine and NH where they tend to be overloaded with potatoes for body and bulk at the expense of, dare I say, seafood? Not so here. Nice view, too, right on the harbor.More

Real turkey in the sandwich so I was happy!! Others loved the seafood fettuccine- great sauce. Grilled haddock was very good and the chowder was also very good.

The Harbourview was recommended by the owners of the motel we were staying at, as a good choice for a dinner location. It wasn't overly busy when we arrived, but got busier as the evening moved along. We had a table close to a window,...which overlooked the harbour and setting sun, which was nice. Our server(can't remember his name) was exceedingly good and looked after us very well. The menu was typical for the area, with obviously a wide range of seafood options, as well as a wide variety of other meal selections. One note, we were warned that the lobster and crab options were double the market price of other restaurants in the general area. From what I remember, the lobster dinner was advertised at the door at close to $80-$85. If it has changed since we visited in mid-July, I stand corrected then. I had the Acadian-Style Morue En Cabane(cod), while my wife had a burger. Both were very good. We also shared the crab dip appetizer, which was very good and a very large portion. Overall, the service and food was very good. Not great or spectacular....but good. It would be worth it if you are in the area to check the Harbourview out.More

Stopped in for lunch. Our server was very knowledgeable about celiac and dietary issues. Lots of good options available. The gf lobster clubhouse was great! The gf bread was good and did not fall apart. Choice of salad or mashed potatoes as a side. Good...size portions as well. Lovely view of the waterfront. A really nice place to stop and enjoy safe gf food. .More
