Nice setting with beautiful view of the harbour and sunsets on the ocean. The food was quite good, and the staff were friendly though a bit reserved. The only drawback was the live band downstairs in the bar. They started playing around 8pm and from that point the restaurant was quite noisy.

This dining experience had an opportunity to be swell. Great view, linen on the tables, lovely menu, surprising wine list. Everything was going great until the tour group arrived. The front desk advised us of their time of arrival so we reserved a table 1/2 earlier. Wine came, appetizers and salad, but then the group arrived. We saw little oF our overburdened waitress or our mains for an unreasonable time after. Sort of took any semblance of fine dining out of the equation. In their defense, the house salad was the best I had eaten in the whole 2 weeks of travel. The mains when they showed up were well prepared.

With a great view of the sun setting over the ocean, we started with the chowder. It was not what we expected..yes, plenty of fish, but very thin. More like a fish soup in 2% milk! We recommend the chef visit Legal Sea Food in Boston. Our entree was steamed lobster...very good, cracked perfectly and good sides. Our sever was very hospitable. The wine menu, while limited was adequate.

Side dishes were plain and lacked seasoning. Stuffed chicken was very good, however fish seemed rather bland. Brownie Dessert was very dry and boring while the Apple Crumble came out cold.

We dined twice at the Oceanview restaurant and were very pleased both times. Yes, it is upscale in atmosphere with linen table clothes, etc.,but the prices are no higher than other restaurants serving the same type of food in Rocky Harbour. Feel free to dress casually as that seems to be well accepted here; jeans and a sport shirt for men and slacks and a shirt for women are fine. The food was of very high quality, we ordered seafood both times, the service was excellent and prices were reasonable. A suggestion- make a reservation and you are much more likely to get a table adjacent to the windows overlooking the harbor; which adds to the dining experience.
