“Our 2nd, 3rd and 4th visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

So we are hooked on this heavenly restaurant. I am not sure how anyone can find fault with this place. The food is amazing! As for the owners, I would have to say that if you feel the you were not welcome it is to bad. I am sure that the problem would have been that they were sooo busy that a hello just did not find it's way to you. The couple are warm and welcoming and enjoy meeting new people. The food is good and the menu changes according to what is in season.
We just celebrated my father in law's 90th birthday there. It was the perfect place to share a meal and a bottle of wine ( that we brought).
I hope that this review encourages more people to pay them a visit. Be sure to ask for the chocolate carrot cake. Then you can describe it somehow!!

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The owners of this establishment will make you feel like family, unlike what a previous reviewer had to say. They must have looked and behaved as second class or no class when they showed up.
The pizza is definitely worth eating and the Chocolate Carrot cake is to die for.

“Tasty pizza and glorious sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We ate here after hiking the Skelink trail and driving along the coast. Started by visiting the goats and then were able to sit at the bar (they only have a few tables...I would suggest booking). Rhubard lemonade lovely (though we wish we had remembered to bring some beer or wine) and excellent pizzas. We watched ours sizzling in the oven. The parsnip soup needed more seasoning....I think it would be very good with curried spices. And the evening sunset was a stunner after a lovely warm day. Do visit this place so they stay in business as they are a real gem.

“A must go place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We loved this place, went for lunch twice and dinner once. They don't have a lot of seating, so a reservation is good to have. It's a new restaurant, I think the only wood fired oven on the island, with a young chef who will do well. There are raised beds and gardens were organic produce for the restaurant grows, including wonderful greens and garlic, which you don't see enough of in Newfoundland. The pizza is made to order with a tomato or pesto base, and is the best pizza I have ever eaten at a restaurant. We also had soup, roasted parsnip, pan fried cod, it could have used some lemon or sauce, and really good salad, followed by crime brûlée, also the rhubarb lemonade as mentioned before was really nice. The view is wonderful. It's really in the middle of a small village, and you have to watch for the signs, but full of people all the times we were there. The bread is the best! well worth the extra effort to find.lovely friendly people.

“Find this for sure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This new spot is a must on your tour of Trinity area. Call for a reservation though - it is busy. The garden fresh veggies are picked just outside the door. The homemade pasta delicious and the pizzas...well... get a send to go!
