2017 season begins May 4th

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 house juices we think you’ll enjoy.


We serve a 5 course set menu that changes monthly.
Dinner is 65 dollars.


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

We are now taking reservations for November-December.

At this time May-October are fully booked. To be added to the waitlist please send us a message with your preferred date.

Reservations can be made by emailing eat@thebitehouse.com

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.
