Had lunch there after a lovely day at the museum. Local specialties offered. Not very different from the food that you can get anywhere in Newfoundland, but the setting is spectacular! Best view of St John's from the restaurant windows!

If you plan to have lunch here, get your name on the wait list when you enter the museum. We waited 45 minutes for a table, then 1/2 hour for our food. Maybe it was an exceptionally busy Wednesday afternoon (after2:00pm). The food, especially seafood chowder was very good.

This is a place that you go to Experience the Views, Quiet Environment, Nice Food and Nice Service. The Food is wonderfully done and the portions will fill you even if they look smaller. Ask for a Window seat if possible. Great views of St. John's Harbor and Signal Hill.
Turn your phones off and enjoy the surroundings.
A Nice little balcony for you to go out to and have your pictures taken with the Harbor and Hill behind you.
A very relaxing, quiet and enjoyable atmosphere.
Not a place for little Johnnie to run about.

We both had the fisherman's bake, with local beer (Iceberg beer) and very much enjoyed the meal. The café was very busy and service was a bit slow but the good food and the great view made it worthwhile. We also very much enjoyed the museum.
