Hôtel de la marine

Costumed staff in period restaurants prepare and serve delicious food and beverages based on 18th century tradition and recipes.

Enjoy a full meal or a light lunch at the Hôtel de la Marine (#31) and the Grandchamp House (#32). Here the townspeople and off-duty soldiers would have eaten, drank, gambled and gossiped. Plan on sharing a knife, as you'll get only large spoon as your eating utensil!

For those who prefer a modern experience, L'Épée Royale Café (#29) offers a cozy stop for hot and cold beverages and a variety of pastries.  Groups can pre-arrange a dining experience by calling 902-733-3552. 

The daily fare varies with the season. Please check in advance for menu options and our ability to accommodate any special dietary requirements.


Restaurants and gift shops are run by the Fortress Louisbourg Association, which is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the presentation and preservation of 18th century Louisbourg. Revenues generated are used to support this mission. For more information, please call 902-733-3548.
