The Barn Restaurant


Last weekend we visited The Barn Restaurant in Gilbert’s Cove.

This cute B&B / restaurant is right nearby Gilbert’s Cove lighthouse. Watch the sign on HWY 101. A path branches out to the restaurant from the gravel road to the lighthouse.


When we arrived, several chickens welcomed us.

I ordered pan fried haddock dinner. It came with a bowl of soup with a corn muffin (can be replaced with salad), creamed or baked potato, vegetable and dessert. CA$18.95. The soup and corn muffin was terrific!!! I enjoyed my main dish and dessert as well, of course.

We had two young children. They kindly offered custom menu such as a half portion of pork tenderloin with potato chips instead of regular choice of potato. My daughter got a burger which was not on the menu. Excellent customer service.


Another note.

They use the vegetables from nearby farm (Wild Rose Farm, Certified Organic) when available. Fresh, local organic vegetables made our dinner even more special.

They display interesting crafts, too.

A bright, cozy and beautiful restaurant. If you are tired of commercialized restaurant in a busy town, try this hidden treasure.
