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 set menu that changes monthly.


Due to the small nature of the restaurant, we work on reservations only.

At this time we are fully booked for the 2017 season. To be added to the waitlist please send us a message with your preferred date.

Reservations for the 2018 season will open January 1st.

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 in Montreal, Denmark and Sweden, 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.
