We're local and we've eaten worldwide. The food here is awesome, creative, and fresh! Service was very attentive. What all other 5 star reviews said is true. European-style pace allows for proper enjoyment. Kudos to chef. We'll be back. Reservations recommended.

Tried for first time. Expected it to be good from reading all the reviews but quality of food far exceeded my expectations. Very casual atmosphere you'd expect for a Bistro with excellent food. Service was slow but does not change my 5 star rating. Can't wait to return.

I go to Chinched for special occasions, as I'm a student and can't afford to eat there as frequently as I would like. With that being said, the food is worth every penny. It is always fresh, with great Newfoundland twists. The staff is friendly, and the setting is intimate. Chinched definitely has the best food I have eaten out of any restaurant I've tried across the province!

We live in the St. John's area and went to Chinched to celebrate a birthday. We have been there before and enjoyed it. We chose this restaurant because their dishes are always a bit unusual and change depending on what is in season. We also like the casual, friendly atmosphere. On this occasion all this held to be true. The food and service was excellent. We did find Chinched highlighted meat dishes more on this most recent visit and our only criticism would be there were limited vegetarian options.
