Really friendly hidden little gem just off the main road but easily found on the GPS. Fast service- brought directly to us while we sat at the picnic tables outside. Fish was perfect in a crispy batter with lots of chips. Highly recommend this place!

Let's just say, that I have had better. But it's like any small town take out. It's a hit and miss. Menu options are fairly good.

This carry out restaurant is popular among locals and tourists alike. The fish and chips are among the best I've sampled on either side of the Atlantic, and the owner-cook Janet is hospitable and generous. Out-of-towners can enjoy their meal on a picnic table under...More

This restaurant is not strong on atmosphere (it's a Take Out) but the fish and chips are exceptionally good and the portions generous. Pouch Cove itself is a beautiful place, and an easy drive from St. John's. The Water Witch is a great place to...More
