Welcome to Governors Pub & Eatery, a superb Cape Breton seafood restaurant renowned for its fresh-from-the-ocean seafood, home-cooked meals and fabulous, friendly service. Located in the historic home of the first mayor of Sydney, Governors is a mixture of old world in a contemporary, vibrant setting, with two outdoor patios overlooking spectacular Sydney Harbour.

You’ll find a warm and relaxing atmosphere in either the traditional comfort of our lively Celtic-style pub upstairs or in the ambiance of the casual fine dining restaurant located on the first floor.

Both offer outstanding selections of local delicacies, including fresh lobster, scallops and haddock, as well as hand-cut steaks and a variety of baked goods made daily. Every item on our menu is made from scratch, created from high-quality fresh sustainable local ingredients and prepared to your request. With our wide selection of bottled and draft beers and fully stocked bar, we can satisfy anyone’s thirst.

Family-owned and operated for two generations, Governors is an exceptional Cape Breton seafood restaurant which prides itself on fantastic food, great service and homemade cooking with a gourmet touch.
