Best seafood chowder so far that we have encountered in Newfoundland. The fish chowder is the best with lots of fish (cod), lobster, scollops. the crab on a kiaser bun is to die for and the seafood pastas second to none

I had found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and was glad I did. The lobster was out of this world delicious. My daughter had the Cod fish and chips. The Cod was the best I have ever had. Moist and cooked to perfection.

You will not find a better seafood chowder anywhere! No filler, no potatoes, no celery, just generous portions of seafood in a rich, creamy broth. Fish and chips were also good, as well as a lobster roll, bursting at the seams. Spectacular view from our...More
