Inspired by the seasons, The Bite House is a 12-seat restaurant located in a century-old farmhouse on Cape Breton Island. Our food is prepared with the best ingredients the area has to offer – either sourced from small independent farmers, foraged, or grown in our gardens. We also carry a small selection of wine, beer, cider and juices we think you’ll enjoy.


We serve a 9-course set menu of smaller bites and larger dishes that changes monthly. 

Dinner is 80 dollars per person.


2019 is currently SOLD OUT.

To be added to the waitlist, please email eat@thebitehouse.com with your preferred dates and party size.

We will start accepting reservations for 2020 on January 5th 2020, 8PM.

In order to be accommodated, dietary restrictions must be mentioned at time of booking.

If you need to cancel your reservation, please let us know within a week of your booking so we can pass the seats to the waitlist.

Bryan Picard grew up in a French-speaking village in rural New Brunswick. Greens and roots were grown in the backyard. Fish and game were brought home by his father. After a number of years cooking and travelling in Montreal, Denmark, Sweden and Australia, he’s back in the Maritimes, and even more appreciative of what the countryside has to offer — amazing food, lush environs, and a sense of community.
