Visited with friends for cocktails and a few snacks. The charcuterie sharing board was delicious. Also had the Calamari and broccoli (suggested by server). Both excellent, broccoli was really good! Great drinks and servers were very attentive and friendly! I will go again !

Host at the restaurant in The Rooms recommend this place. It was wonderful, best food we had in St John’s. Extraordinary flavours, helpful service, great meal. Give it a try and avoid the pub fare everywhere to be found in the area.
