The menu had a welcome variety and quality, not expected in a sleepy, rural Newfoundland town. It looks like it would be a perfect spot for a wedding reception.

We happened on this restaurant by chance while looking for a lunch spot. What a delight. Although we didn't have reservations, there were a couple of tables available and we were given our choice. The view over the water was lovely. Service was quick and attentive, and the food was plentiful and delicious. We both had fish dishes, both were... More

The only complaint one has about this delightful restaurant with its picturesque setting is that the time it is open is far too short. The food is delicious and the service impeccable. The staff is welcoming and certainly familiar with the menu which has a good variety of local cuisine. Almost every table has a good view of either the... More

Lovely food with more than generous portions. Friendly, attentive service. Lunch menu is varied and good value for money. Beautiful situation with many tables near the windows overlooking Holyrood harbour. Very clean throughout. Parking in front and also at the side. Highly recommend.

A beautiful setting with lovely grounds, The Tea Garden is a gem. Lunch was delicious, with pan-fried cod, a garden salad, and chocolate cake. Nicely presented by staff who were professional and so friendly. Fresh flowers on the table, shining flatware and well-pressed linens - all make for such an enjoyable visit.

This restaurant is absolutely beautiful, with a fantastic view of the water. The food is fantastic. I had the cod au gratin which used a really nice cheese and a cream sauce that wasn't too heavy. The berry vinagrette on the salad was light but flavourful. Overall, it was a great experience and I look forward to going back.

Lunchtime on the highway, where to go? Thanks to trip advisor we took a lunch in this beautiful place. Victorian style house outside and inside. Pan fried cod was the best I ever had. Lovely garden salad.
