We enjoyed the food here. It offered some variety to fish and was very plentiful. The cafe offered wifi, but it was a little slow on the wifi.

Food and service is average but a gluten free pizza crust makes me happy! Also put the effort into serving my daughter with the dairy allergy. One of the folks at the table pointed out the soggy nachos they received but hey, they ordered nachos. It's seems to be a place not worried about that.

We dined here twice during our stay in Tadoussac and enjoyed both meals. The atmosphere was relaxed and the decor quirky but it was an enjoyable experience with good service. We thought it offered good value for money and whilst the food wasn't restaurant standard it was perfectly fine for an evening meal and suited us as we didn't want rich food at every meal on a longish trip to Nova Scotia.

Did I really just pay $20.45 for spaghetti with meat sauce to go for my child? Food is way too expensive for a very casual restaurant in a small town.

The food at the Yellow Cello is somewhere between average and very good, but our waitress Larissa and the fun atmosphere that she created brought my over-all review to "very good". Larissa was a new waitress and it showed, but she was a hoot because she was so open about her mistakes and the fact that she was still on a steep learning curve. She made us laugh and smile and generally upped our entire dining experience.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is bright and cheerful (and yellow), although certainly not fine dining (and there were food bits under the table at my feet, which was a little off-putting). The food is just okay - nothing to write home about, but nothing to complain about either. We were very surprised to receive our bill and realise that the lobster pasta special was $25 per plate! That was certainly over-priced for what it was. But over-all, we enjoyed our dinners.

I'd recommend trying the Yellow Cello while you are in Baddeck. And please say hello to Larissa if you are fortunate enough to have her serving you. :)
