Three of us arrived in Twillingate Tue September 5th, traveling from Gros Morne Park towards St. John's. We were just coming to enjoy the sunset with a nice QuidiVidi beer and camera in hand, when we were encouraged to come back for dinner, which we did. We had the best dinner experience of our entire 10-day trip in this cozy, new restaurant, with yummy lobster/shrimp toasts, two of us having lobster, one coconut curry shrimp penne, and we were even Screech'ed in with a delicious banana flambe -- no need to kiss the ugly lips of a cod! We took the whale watching boat tour the following afternoon (unfortunately no sightings) and returned the evening after for a repeat performance. Nick was a fabulous chef and Carol Ann and her crew were very hospitable, friendly, and in for a laugh.We accidentally stumbled upon some of them Friday evening at QuidiVidi Microbrewery in St. John's...

The open floor plan, the quick server and the views of the inner harbour added to the flavour of our meal.
A delightful place to sit and read relax a while. Great outdoor deck to enjoy the fresh sea air and views or sit inside and listen to the chit chat of other visitors to Newfoundland.
The food was very good, but all I can remember is the ice cream and the Quidi Vidi beer....
Easy parking and just a few steps from a harbour boat tour if you wish.

My family visited Twillingate for the first time recently. We had the absolute pleasure of having lunch at the Canvas Cove Bistro. The menu boasts a flare of fine dining while offering very reasonable prices. The food was fabulous - coupled with the friendliness staff - making this a most enjoyable experience. My mouth just waters at the thought! You cannot go to Twillingate without visiting the Canvas Cove Bistro. And for an extra treat, Iceberg Quest Ocean Tours is onsite so you can take in a tour and enjoy a full Twillingate experience!
