At the end of the road....overlooking the water....lovely food in a quirky green building. You can see the spectacular sunset from the window tables! Great gift shop.

Food was good but very over priced. Service was lax. The owners kids were eating crab and lobster when we got there....guess who paid for that! Go to the local cafes, good food, great prices.More

Another first-rate restaurant in the St.Anthony-L'Anse-Aux-Meadows area. The service was both friendly and very efficient. And the food was exceptionally good. We would highly recommend.

We focus on organic , fresh and local cuisine.. nothing processed. We have vegetarian choices like butternut squash , sweet potato with fresh ginger,roasted root vegetable, wild mushroom and others, salad made with arugula and kale, stir fry's, pastas, etc. We serve everything from local (mussels ,snow crab, lobster, cod fish, scallops, shrimp, halibut, mackerel, capelin, calamari, etc) .Local lamb, Fresh chicken with bone in and skin on., grade A tenderloin beef, pork and so many more choices. We use the local berries that ground in the area for the desserts. We only open from Late May until Mid September because that is when the food we serve is Fresh and available. We prefer not to open after later because it would compromise the quality of what we are trying to achieve and prefer not to serve over process chemically altered food.
