Breakfast at Rumpels

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.

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

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!

The fresh cod with scrunchions, the mussels and the fish and chips all made my stay at the Quality Hotel housing this restaurant exceptional. I first went to the restaurant because of the convenience but came back for the quality. The prices are also wonderful and you can't beat the harbor view. The wait staff are universally cheery and helpful.

Yes, this is a hotel restaurant but boy does it ever deliver! Located in the Quality Hotel Harbour View in St. John's, it is welcoming, affordable, and serves really good simple fare. For breakfast, I was seated at a table overlooking the harbor and my scrambled eggs, bacon, coffee, and yogurt were excellent. My server was friendly and attentive and... More

Definitely not exceptional, but very good. Our main reason for choosing this establishment was because of their exceptional handicapped accessibility, as one of our elderly guests uses a walker. Also, the staff were very sensitive to her needs. Two of our guests had the cod tongues which were cooked to perfection, a feat that is not that common in local... More

I wasn't thrilled when my husband suggested we eat here it wasn't one of the top picks on Trip Advisor. He assured me the food was great....it was amazing! Fast friendly service, great prices and scrumptious! Highly recommend it here! Beautiful view too.

Although this isn't haute cuisine by any stretch of the imagination, it does what is needed in the location it is in. Reasonably priced simple food with decent service. We recently had a large group there. The waitress was very good at juggling the orders and bringing the food. She was cheerful and helpful. The food was pretty good.

Rumpelstiltskins is in the Quality Hotel in downtown St. John's. We were told we'd have to wait at the bar for a table for 6 to become available - as we attempted to do that in the very cramped space we were told we had to move as the wait staff needed more room - it was never suggested where...
