We stopped here based on good reviews here, well I have to say it was very disappointing, they brought wrong soup and the food was quite bad. We ordered salmon sandwich and mussels dish with tequila sauce. salmon sandwich was very simple: salmon, lettuce & tomato with no sauce, very dry and not tasty at all. Mussel dish was the bad side, it was smelly and not well cooked, no tequila sauce for sure, i do not think they even made the sauce themselves. I know that area does not give you so many choices, but this is not something you even want to try. To be fair the decorations and paintings inside were cool.

Stopped in on a whim for lunch while driving through Rocky Harbour on our way up the northern peninsula. That was one of the best decisions we've ever made. had a couple of warps and an espresso which were a pleasant alternative to the deep fried fare we'd been eating during our vacation in Newfoundland.

Great coffee is very scarce in Newfoundland and this was one of only two places that we found in our three week trip. Make the most of it!

We dined here with high expectations based on the rave reviews. However, we were a bit disappointed! Out of 5 diners, only two of us enjoyed our meal. The stuffed chicken breast ordered by 2 of of our group was very tough. It was actually difficult to cut with the knife provided. When my wife politely complained, the server's response was to bring a sharper knife! For nearly $30 per plate we expected better than this. Maybe the chef was having a bad day, but at this price point, I expect both better food and better service. We will not be returning for a second time.

It is great but service very slow & can get crowded while waiting. If you want something to go on your way to a hike etc - then I suggest you can ahead & pre-order. We took sandwiches to hike Green Gardens & had a gorgeous picnic on the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea. Wonderful... Mayan Hot Chocolate & Monster cookies great too!
