Tried the featured special, BBQ pork belly over scalloped potatoes and baby spinach.
Carmalized pork belly was perfect, scalloped potatoes not overly creamy, just the right texture.
My wife had the Lobster Nicoise Salad, Lobster super moist, fresh greens and the dressing was not overpowering.
Great place for lunch after the art gallery and museum walk through.

The food was excellent and the views stunning. The service was above par. A must visit when you are at the Rooms.

The cafe is on the 4th floor and the view overlooking St. John's is spectacular, but the food was dismal and a total disappointment. The Lobster Nicoise salad and mystery dressing was barely edible and overpriced. Enjoy the fabulous museum, but eat beforehand.

I have eaten at the Rooms Cafe many times, the food is consistently excellent quality and when the weather co-operates, the views of St. John's are spectacular. The cafe offers vegetarian and Gluten free options, with enough selection to please children and adults. While the cafe does not accept reservations, the wait times are generally manageable (15 - 20 minutes).

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!
