I've dined here several times since moving to Gander 3 years ago and I've never had a miss. I've tried practically everything on the menu from the starters to dessert and it has all been absolutely delicious. I will say that I find the atmosphere to be okay. Some of the tables are too close to each other so it... More

We spent a night in Gander on our way further north and were surprised to find a restaurant this good in a small town. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was attractive, well prepared and delicious. Nice wines and drinks. Reasonably priced. Casual yet nice for a special celebration.

We had a recommendation for Bistro on Roe, and found it a lovely change of pace from some of the other dining options. We decided to have 2 appetizers each to make for a lighter meal and found the food and service top notch. Perhaps it isn't the cheapest option in town, but the freshness of food and great service...

My husband and I dined here and we wouldn't hesitate to go again if we were in Gander. It's a fine dining experience well done. Service was spot on. The food beautifully presented. A joy for the palate. Good wine list. Don't let the tucked away in the small strip mall site deter you!

This doesn't like much in the outside, being in a strip center, but quite nice and elegant on the inside. A wonderful menu with fish, pasta, beef entrees. Everyone in our group was pleased with the food. Fresh preparation and homemade pasta. What a great find in Gander!!

This was an unexpected pleasure in a strip mall - well-prepared and interesting dishes in a pretty room accompanied by a jazz playlist put together by someone with a good ear. It was so good that I wonder how it survives, because it wasn't busy when we ate there on a Saturday night. But our server said it's been around... More

Discovered this restaurant when reading reviews on a restaurant in a nearby community which compared the experience to the Bistro on Roe and said the other restaurant came up far short. That was enough to peak our interest and we booked. We are very glad we did. The waitress, Rachel, was excellent. She recommended the cod on homemade fettuccine with... More

During our visit to Newfoundland, my girlfriend and I had dinner at The Bistro on Roe. It was an excellent meal. We were drawn by the excellent reviews we had read online. The restaurant is in an unusual location - a business plaza. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked inside. The restaurant is cozy and clean and has a... More

Booked reservation ahead of time. Had butternut squash ravioli, it was very creamy and tasty. Also tried a taste of the chicken Alfredo, that seemed good too. Also enjoyed the bread that came before the meal. Service was very friendly. Sadly we were too full for dessert...
