Well worth the short detour on the drive to Twillingate. Fantastic setting and home cooked seafood and other dishes. The lobster salad Kaiser was simply delicious as was the chowder. Order dessert even if you're not hungry.

Fresh lobster right off the boat! This was my first full lobster deal and it cost what I would usually expect for a good lobster tail. I had a 1.5 pound lobster meal for just over $30. Thankfully the plate led tailed how to attack this meal along with some friendly advice from our waitress. Well worth the drive from Twillingate, but don't be discouraged that it looks like you are wandering through a residential neighbourhood. It's back there.

Really nice to have fresh lobster at such reasonable prices. The portions are generous and again ... fresh.

We were steered to Sansomes by our lodging hosts Wendy & Dan Andrews... and we were grateful they did. Tucked away in tiny Hillgrade right on the shore... all of about 20 seats in the joint and everyone of them was full of locals. Best Calmari I have ever had, followed by the freshest tasting lobster, we picked from a seawater fed tank. Service was attentive and prompt. Portions generous... and then the owner... Elaine came over to chat us up. Just a great experience from start to finish.

We were out cod jigging with some other tourists who'd been to Sansome's the night before and they highly recommended it. This kind of recommendation is better than from the locals ;) so we decided to give it a go. It was well worth the drive and we liked that it was off the beaten path, down a winding road toward the shore. It was truly authentic - this is the best place to go for lobster. It was good value too - included a side, drink and dessert for the same price of a single lobster elsewhere.
