Pretty good!

It is better than a typical hotel restaurant. Service is just ok but the food is wonderful. I had the salmon for dinner which was lovely and the breakfast was pretty standard but good!

Very much enjoyed our filling start for the day before the hilly walks about town. We both enjoyed the fluffy scrambled egg, sausage/bacon with crispy hash browns platter. And the coffee was excellent! Overlooking the Harbour was like having dessert!

I wanted a window seat but that area was booked already. We had a wonderful young lady server who knew her food... More

We ate here in anticipation of some seafood but the place was a bit disappointing. The seafood plate (trio of shellfish with pasta) was not worth the $30, there were only 3 of each, mussels, scallops and shrimp. Pasta was a bit dry. Touching the menu sure wanted me to go wash my hands...would not come here again.

Six of us went to Rumplestiltskin's on a Saturday night. It was very busy but fortunately we had reservations. Service was good and staff were friendly. We had a window seat which was great. It was very noisy as the restaurant was full and we could not always hear each other but not a big deal. I ordered the chicken... More

This restaurant is located in the Quality Hotel, right on the harbour front in St John's, at the foot of Signal Hill. It has big all round windows with a great view of the harbour and city. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and it's always comfortably busy - a good sign in any restaurant! I had breakfast, lunch and... More

I love breakfast here it's the best way to start a day before walking the trails. I can recommend the steak and eggs, missing it already.

Enjoyed a delicious meal here with great service and a fabulous view of St. John's harbour. The place was jumping on a Friday night and many folks had to be turned away but that was perhaps because Rod Stewart was in town so lots and lots of tourists. Highly recommend,

Good food, nice staff, a bit pricey and a bit slow service, but enjoyable. Beautiful harbour views at night!
