“Good Local Food in a Rustic Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We had a 5:30 booking in the fully booked dining room. The menu offered two choices of appetizer and main course and a dessert of Newfoundland berry pudding with Screech sauce. The carrot and orange soup was very nice and the green salad with cranberries and nasturtium was small but colourful. We all chose the hazelnut encrusted salmon with dauphinoise potatoes au gratin and roasted root vegetables. The alternative was lamb shanks. There was plenty to eat and the food was delicious. The best place to eat in Trinity.

“Go for the Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

It was fun going to the Twine Loft for dinner; they offer a three-course meal (appy, entrée, plus dessert and coffee or tea) for $39. The food was good, if not over-the-top divine, and there was so much of it that my friends and I all ate our leftovers for dinner the next night.

“Well prepared and presented food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We enjoyed the supper here so much that we came back a second night in Trinity rather than try another place. There was only two choices for the main course but we were fortunate to have just what we wanted each night. Check in the morning or the night before to see what is being offered. This is a place to dine rather than eat and reservations are recommended in the summer season.

“Excellent service and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The pecan encrusted salmon was yummy, the chocolate hazelnut dessert left me wanting more ( although it was a generous serving!) Excellent and attentive service.

“A terrific dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Others have said it all but I just want to add a few notes. Aside from the really great lamb shanks, the wine selection was good. The three-course meal is $39 per person, very reasonable for the quality of food. Sunset on the dock with a glass of wine before dinner was wonderful. The service was very professional and still friendly and personal. I would highly recommend this place. There are two sittings so book early as it is small and fills up.
