One doesn't usually expect a lot from a hotel restaurant...Signal earns highest marks for service and delicious food! Our server was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a shellfish broth starter, pan fried local fish and beef filet. All cooked perfectly!

We stayed at Cape Grace so ate in the restaurant several times. We had dinner there our second night. The food and service were outstanding. We had an abundant buffer and hot breakfast there each morning. Josh is a fine manager.

With panoramic views of Signal Hill, Signal Restaurant provides a welcome setting on the water's edge. The menu is a unique combination of flavours incorporating influences from the many cultures that called upon this region in days gone by. The aged yellowwood furniture juxtaposed with crisp white linen, all skillfully positioned in the glow of the eccentric hand-crafted chandeliers sets the atmosphere for a new level of hip hotel dining.
