I traveled solo and went to Raymond's on a recommendation. I had a lovely table by the window. The staff was very attentive to me and noticing that I was alone, they brought me magazines and the wifi password. Presentation was lovely and food was...More

We had the 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairing and enjoyed all the dishes. Particularly enjoyed the pasta course and appreciated the local flavour. Wine pairings worked well with some interesting choices. Meal was well paced and service friendly.

Raymond's is known for perfection. The head chef is Jeremy Charles and I first sampled his cooking at Atlantica with my elderly parents (80's) They rarely drank and I never drank in front of them so fine dining around the world is inexpensive when you...More

Hallo Raymonds Restaurant...I'm coming to St.John's late June from T.O.... I kinda like your menu...not too crazy for fish although i might change my mind at the last minute....anyway ..what wine would you suggest to sip with the duck breast? I rather have a sommelier replying and not trip advisor's visitors. thx

Has anyone ever brought a child there? Is it allowed or frowned upon?

We brought our kids who are 10 and 12. They loved it! They are quite used to eating in restaurants, though, and love trying new foods. If your kids only eat mac and cheese and chicken fingers, they will hate it.
Is there a dress code?
