Breakfast and Supper

Had both breakfast and supper here while in St. John's. During breakfast we came and waited to be seated. We were told that there was only one table left for two people and were seated at the smallest table in the whole place. During the next 10 minutes we watched 4 other groups of 2 people be... read more

Everytime I travel to St. John's (A few times a year) I make sure to get in a yummy breakfast at Rumpelstiltskin's! The restaurant has a great view of the harbour and a bright, cheerful atmosphere. The food is always very delicious, the tea is served in a little tea pot (I just love that!) and the servers are all... More

I had a rib steak which was charbroiled to perfection. Veggies were bland and the baked potato nothing special. The plate came sour cream and au jus included. Steaks are sikd by the ounce ($2.70) for triple "a" quality. Server did not bother to check how my meal was and wasn't overly friendly. Not rude either. It's located at the... More

The food was okay, however the management was extremely rude. We went to have breakfast, sat at a table for 3 of us for quite a while. Manager came up and told us we couldn't sit there, it was reserved, no reserved sign on it. Told us we had to move and we moved to another table, told again, "you... More

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat after a full day of meetings. Ordered the fish and chips and a local beer. The meal was okay but a bit pricey given the simplicity of the meal.

Go to this restaurant. The food was great, the dessert (apple crumble) was excellent, the service was great and the seating also great. Next time I will ask for a seat overlooking the harbour…that would have been excellent.

This establishment is attached to a Quality Inn. It absolutely exceeded all my expectations. The food was very tasty and the selection was broad enough for anyone visiting but what makes it a strong 4 is the politeness and professionalism of the staff and the view of the harbour. It's worth trying even if you're not staying at the hotel.

Food is ok. Service it great. Everything seems ok, but the pricing is seems a bit high for the food you get. My only real complaint is the bacon in my breakfast was too greasy. It had pools of grease in the bacon curves.
