“A Nice Night Out”

Normaway Inn & Cabins
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 October 2016

The Inn is out of the way and not something you'd be likely to happen upon otherwise but still easy access once you know where it is. The grounds are impressive as you drive down a long treed lane way to a a 1920's lodge style building where we had dinner. The service was attentive although we did feel we were being rushed a little. The food was good although not exceptional. The real fun was afterwards where we enjoyed listening to an excellent fiddler in the living room which felt like being in someone's home in a private gathering. We would certainly recommend the whole experience as a good night out when you are in the area.

This location had been recommended by a friend in Nova Scotia and the Information Center at the entrance to Cape Breton made the booking for us as they said most accommodations on the Cabot Trail were sold out. The location is well off the main road but there are adequate signs. Very rustic and we stayed in the cabins. Restaurant was very nice and had limited but sufficient dinner offerings. The dining room was well staffed and very busy. The food selection was limited but sufficient. Quality of food and presentation was better than average.

Each time we vacation in Cape Breton we plan a meal reservation at this charming inn. Unique, home made and very good! It's part of an old inn and we love the atmosphere, the staff is very attentive and polite. Usually after our dinner we attend an event that's held in the barn.

The surrounding nature is just amazing, the room itself was ok. Service was very friendly and helpful too.

We had dinner there and our impression was, that's too expensive for what you finally get - leaves a bit the impression that they take advantage of the lack of competition... but despite the price, the dinner was good and healthy.

Annoying was finnally the fact, that bookings over booking.com don't include breakfast (which seemed also quite pricy). Alternatively, we had breakfast at "Dancing Goat" - which is just a 2min drive away and was just lovely!

Enjoyed a full 3 course dinner. Food was excellent, atmosphere was great and the after dinner entertainment in the living room was a plus!
