We were pleased to have the opportunity of eating food that was not deep fried, seemingly the favoured cooking style in NL in too many places. Had excellent scallops and cod with a beet salad. Well served in a stylish environment

Just wrote one rapturous review for this gem of a restaurant. Inventive and delicate cuisine. Try the scallops on mini ravioli w herbs and roasted almonds and a dash of lemon in a divine creamy but light sauce !

Gnocchi was overcooked. Drinks were OK. Starters weren't bad. There are better places in St. John's to go for a good meal.

Had an amazing dinner, scallops, lamb, pork bellies and delightful desserts and wine to add to a fun filled evening in a large wooden wine barrel and a great waitress. A must go.
