“Bleak”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Its crappy fast food prepared by indifferent staff, pretty much par for the course in terms of the whole Marine Atlantic experience as a whole. Just depressing and unappealing on every level. I would advise you to save your money and eat on the ferry instead but that would be even worse advice as those jokers who run the dining options on the ferry have no concept of how to treat customers or prepare edible food. Best advice I can give someone contemplating travelling on Marine Atlantic to or from Newfoundland is to avoid this awful restaurant and avoid the awful ferry and just hop a plane to/from Sydney instead and eat at a good restaurant instead

“The Ferry Terminal Restaurant is a Wreck”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

After two-and-a-half weeks enjoying Newfoundland hospitality and food, this dining experience was appallingly grim. We had passed on eating in Port aux Basques, having heard good reviews of the ferry terminal in North Sydney and expecting that there woud be some consistency within the company. Instead of having a meal in town, we checked in an extra hour early and ate at the terminal. Very bad choice.

Firstly, we asked about available hot food as there was a lengthy menu of choices in the entryway but nothing showing along the food line. We were told that there was gravy and soup in the steamer. Since these were not likely to satisfy, we grabbed a sandwich and a turkey supper from the cooler and continued on to the register. Twenty dollars.

I looked around for a microwave to heat the meal as this had not been offered at the check-out. No dice. Returning to the cashier, I asked to have the meal heated (it contained mashed potatoes, meat, and macaroni & cheese - all items that one would naturally avoid eating cold). Treated as though this were an imposition, the cashier gave it one minute in the microwave and returned it to me. Needless to say, this was not a sufficient amount of time. Cold mashies were dismal, meat was dry, mac & cheese was loaded with green peppers. I would have been better off going hungry until the next morning.

Newfoundland is a place full of fresh fish, friendly people, and folks who are eager to have you enjoy your visit. The folks who run this place should get on that ferry and leave, rather than create such a poor impression of their province.

“enjoyable trip”
Reviewed July 17, 2010

My wife and I and our rented auto took this ferry from North Sydney to Port aux Basques and back. The ferry had a restaurant with average food. In addition, it had live music which was quite entertaining, and a movie. Supposedly, it has wifi but we couldn't connect nor could anyone we encountered. However, the six-hour crossing was quite pleasant and we encountered some really nice people. The vessel rides so smoothly that one would hardly know he is at sea.
