The first thing that strikes you about this restaurant is its green and white nondescript building in a narrow street (I am glad they had their own parking lot) in the rustic Quidi Vidi Village. Then you get seated in a quaint room with a low ceiling and a wood-burning fireplace (the server explains that this is a national historic site, being one of the oldest wooden building in North America). After which, you look up the menu written on the chalkboard wall. All this history and the cozy and feels-like-home atmosphere adds a unique touch to our dining experience in Mallard Cottage. Service was informal and friendly. Food was all scrumptious. We tasted the seared halibut and lobster and it was fresh and done well. It was a unique St. John's culinary experience!
