We had the most wonderful dining experience here in a long time. The view is extraordinary, the service was impeccable and congenial and the food was masterfully prepared and presented from start to finish. We felt incredibly well taken care of and send kudos to the chef and his team.

Are group had nothing but good things to say about our experience at the Panorama. Our server was very accomidating and knowledgable. The food was the perfect size portion and excellent taste at a reasonable price. Great selection of wines and food for the area. Just a great experience overall, I would recommend this to everyone.

Great experience across every meal. Loved the Tagliatelle, Lobster, Cornish Hens, Pancakes, Egg sandwich, and eggs Benedict! Canadian Manhattan was also perfect!

Spectacular views and food was very good. However the meal was spoiled by inebriated foursomes that “warmed up” at the bar before dinner.

My husband and I have been to Panorama several times when we have visited Cabot. We are always happy with the food and service. It can get to be a little noisy sometimes but that is to be expected when there are often large groups dining together after golf.
Can’t wait to return!

I found the Panorama very disappointing. Although the view is spectacular, the food was not what I had hoped for at all. My husband order the halibut which he said was okay but a bit dry. I ordered a seafood pasta dish. It was good but a bit over salted for my taste. The dish had an adequate amount of seafood. There were a couple of clams, three shrimp and three mussels. The mussels were the disappointment. I couldn't believe that one wasn't opened. It wasn't like I had ordered a pound or two. There were only three. It seems to me that plating takes precedence over taste so how could you miss that? It wasn't as if the restaurant was busy. There were only people at 4 tables and two of the tables were already eating when we arrived. I mentioned it to the waiter who said "I'll tell the chef." The hostess was delightful. She was friendly and helpful. The waiter was alright, but was clearly more interested in chatting golf to one of the other diners. While the view is amazing, the food, especially for the price, is less than stellar.

Wonderful location with the most stunning views. Food was excellent - flavourful and well prepared. Service was friendly and attentive, while also being unobtrusive. The server took note of our sons love of bread and brought a generous second helping, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Excellent experience.

Quality dinner meals and menu which is a bit surprising for a golf resort. The views are wonderful and the presentation creative. Every meal we had was of high quality. Prices a bit high but you are in a resort and have to realize you are captive!.

Although our food was ok, the menu was limited and we were stuck with monkfish that we were assured was "fresh" but it sure tasted like it had been previously frozen. The wine we had was good, and we were able to enjoy the evening with friends. Our server was pleasant, polite, and efficient.

Beautiful scenery. Try to plan your meal around sunset. Beef carpaccio and oysters were excellent. Monkfish and halibut dishes also fantastic. Extensive wine list but pricey.

We were at Cabot Links for the Golf experience and were delighted to also enjoy a special dining experience as well. We were a twosome and the two some tables were petite in size, so we sat at a foursome and the extra space for dining was welcomed. The meal was outstanding and each dish had a lovely presentation. My husband is not a seafood fan, and yet he loved each seafood dish for the fresh quality and unique flavors. Our only challenge was the table next to us was loud and used less than gentile language, but that is NOT Panarama’s responsibility. Once the group departed, we continued our lovely dining experience. It’s definitely a special occasion place and quite remote. Views before dark of the coast were gorgeous.

the restaurant is part of a golf course and hotel so you can look out onto the course through floor to ceiling windows and if you hit sunset time its spectacular.
