Went there with a small group for our staff dinner - had no problem with the food or the service, both were excellent; however, we were seated in their wine cellar and we all found it quite chilly for the entire time we were there....More

This was the 3rd time I have been here in as many years. Went with family for a holiday dinner. There are many new restaurants in St. John's but decided to play it safe as well as limited openings given the holiday season. A few...More

Twice here and the food has never let us down. Thumbs up to the chef for the great work. A special mention has to go for the Choc Lava dessert. That was indeed "laava-licious!"

I generally lower my expectations whenever I attend a group function at a restaurant as plating and serving 110 meals simultaneously can put handcuffs on the kitchen in their attempt to maintain flavour and flair in their culinary compositions. I now may have to retool...More

Description
While the burgeoning restaurant scene in St. John's has witnessed epic change during the past two decades, the one constant of culinary perfection is Bianca's on Water Street. The top notch kitchen amazes every lunch and evening with tantalizing menu items and daily features pulled from the chef's… penchant for turning fresh local ingredients to plated master pieces. The food style is best summed up by owner Bianca Tzanov as, "regional avant-garde style that has Mediterranean roots". Pair the kitchen magic with one of the most celebrated wine cellars in Eastern Canada (Perennially recognized by Wine Spectator), and you'll soon understand why Bianca's has become as iconic as icebergs and whales to the fabric of Newfoundland dining. Whether a visitor or local, all agree, Bianca's is a destination not to be missed.
