Gezellig

To describe Newman's in Cannon Beach I need to import a Dutch word for which there is no adequate English translation. That word is gezellig. The sense of the word is comfortable, enjoyable, delicious, friendly, cozy, quaint, all of the above. And the ambience, food, service, and company at... read more

In our travel and dining research we read about this little restaurant in a historical house and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed in our selections -- lobster ravioli and a foie gras pasta. Our disappointment lay in not getting hold of a decent half bottle of Oregon Pinot noir. We had been to the Soter... More

Excellent food, great service, and outstanding crab cakes. It's small, ruatic and homely. Quite pricey, but definitely worth it.

Very rarely the perfect experience happens, where the service, food, atmosphere, company all come together in impeccable fashion for a memorable culinary evening. Our experience at Newmans was not that perfect evening. It had the potential to be, but wasn't. The restaurant was well reviewed, the locals raved about it, the place we stayed was the former employer of John... More

We were driving all over Cannon Beach on a Tuesday night this past March and many restaurants were closed as I think the town has certain days it shuts down in the Winter. I got onto my Yelp app and this little gem was one of the top rated places to go to. We had perfect service and the food... More

A tiny place with a tiny kitchen that turns out very good traditional European style cooking. All of the food was very well prepared and was delivered very timely. A bit disapinted by the absence of more seasonal ingredients and vegetables. A high end restaurant experience at the beach at a reasonable price

This tiny restaurant has terrific food and a lovely, small house feel. You must make reservations, though. My duck was perfect and the foie gras on it and on the pasta appetizerr was delicious and a solid portion. Good wine list and friendly and helpf service.

This restaurant is a bit pricey, with no beach / ocean view, but the food is excellent! The salad with gorgonzola cheese, walnuts, pears, and balsamic vinaigrette and lobster ravioli were superb! Excellent wine list. We were served by Jen on June 30. She was ABC (Above and Beyond the Call of duty). Thanks, Jen. I hope that your boss... More

We had a fabulous dinner in a very quaint setting. The restaurant was once a private home and it's quiet and intimate. The service was great, as was the food.
