“Really good toutons!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

For those of you who don't know, toutons are balls of deep fried (or pan fried) bread served traditionally with butter and molassas. They really know how to make them among other great traditional dishes. We make sure to stop by for lunch every summer when we visit Gros Morne.

“Best fish dinner on the Rock - www.oldloft.ca”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

They need to update their web site information on TripAdvisor and on the internet. There are two sites a .com and .ca

The .com email does not seem to work, tried to send a message about the incorrect spelling of the name shown here, Lofy.

About the food:
Entre: Delicious squid (calamari) , flavourful and tender.
Main: Fish and chips, pan seared, lightly floured pieces of cod, with a side of vegetables and choice of potato

Best fish dinner we had on the Rock!

“These people know how to fry fish!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

My mother was born in Woody Point on July 15, 2012 and so we had lunch there to celebrate. How good it was to discover the amazing Old Loft Restaurant. We had the fish of the day which was cod. It was cooked perfectly and was as fresh as fresh can be. Be advised that the chairs and benches are not very comfortable. But it was almost obscenely cheap! there is a lovely gift shop and they sell hand made quilts, sweaters, socks and mittens. Five pairs of socks and our gift needs were satisfied.

“Great food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Not a fancy restaurant with rough sawn lumber for the interior, but the service and food were great.
