Our party was comprised of four adults and we came over from Woody Point for fresh fish. It was a quiet Monday night and so we were seated beachside looking over the bay at Trout River--all the better to enjoy a very colorful sunset at the end of our meal. All of us ordered fish (turbot, cod, cod cheeks) and neither the scallops or lobster so cannot comment on these. The fish is so well cooked (not over done) that it doesn't come close to needing any tartar sauce (and, none is served!). Our mussels, served as an appetizer, were good and the wine broth just right. I liked the buns! They are big and fresh and yes, most likely come from a commercial provider--regardless, the food is excellent. The service was also good and we good-naturedly served as a "test" table for a new server. She was pleasant and efficient with a good sense of humour. If in Gros Morne, reserve a night to have lunch or dinner here; you will not be disappointed!

We had for lunch a simply named but totally excellent fish burger and the freshest and most delicious lobster on the island. Several days later we drove back down from Cow Head just for a second lunch. Superb again! Fish cakes were delightful. Service both days was excellent! 1892 on tap. A little slice of heaven, harbour side, in this tiny fishing village.

My husband and I dined here as it came highly recommended by our inn owners. We were not disappointed. First off, I must say that my husband does not eat fish, I repeat, he does NOT eat fish. Well, he was forewarned that he would have to suck it up as we are traveling Newfoundland where they are known for their seafood.. He ordered the cod and gobbled (almost all of) it up. Our waitress was very sweet and became our personal photographer, we wanted pictures of us and the beautiful sunset.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

The Dead whale is gone so there will be, we can honestly say, no whale meat tonight!. But, if you want an exceptional feed of lobster or snow crab this lovely little restaurant overlooking Trout River's bay is a great spot. Service might be a tad slow but when you are visiting and travelling in western Newfoundland--what's the hurry? Indeed, take a walk along the extended boardwalk along the shore passing right before the restaurant. Explore the wonders of delicious fresh Newfoundland fish; indulge in a plate of cod tongues if available and, most of all, take on a mighty lobster or enormous snow crab. This is a fish restaurant and, if the wine list is short, the Quidi Vidi beer list is good. Enjoy the scenery; drool over the fish; and don't worry yourself too much if the service is a trifle slow. A great place for sea food.
