Frag cod was on the menu and didn't disappoint. We were looking for something late with a young child and this fit the bill perfectly. Kids menu to boot

Good but pretty bland typical family restaurant fare. No real local flavour to speak of, but lots of "staples" for less adventurous eaters. It gets a hearty meh

This is a very nice restaurant with a great view overlooking the harbour. It's attached to the Quality Harbourview Hotel and is close to several other hotels in the area. Once we discovered it we ate there several times during our three-day stay in St. John's. It has a nice variety of menu items so almost everyone can find something... More

We visited St. John's for a few days last month and stayed at the Quality Inn next door, so this was a great, convenient place to eat for us. It turned out that was a good choice. The bacon-wrapped scallops were terrific, nice and fresh, and cooked perfectly. The 1892 Beer was cold and the Iceberg Vodka and Tonic was... More

Waiter went out of his way to get us more information. Unfortunately the smell of fish extended to the lobby of the hotel. Friends were not happy with their fish dishes. May salmon was good.
