Remarkably slow service and disorganised. Queuing for 20 mins, waiting for 30 minutes for a cup of coffee in the morning. Unwilling to cater to my dietary requirements. Hotel noisy at night due to thin walls, creaky floors. Bar staff = brilliant! Give them a...raise!More

Planned a meal with friends who live out of province. Our reservation was at 6:00pm, our food arrived two hours later. Our server never checked in with us and we had to ask another server what happened to her and our meals. In the mean...time two other tables, who came in after us, were served. When we did get our food, they were tasty, however we never got any satisfactory reason why we had to wait two hours.More

A pleasant place for dinner; a good menu, sort of innovative wine list, interesting beers and Newfoundlanders serving. Only a pity that I didn't go back on my second night

In the restaurants defense we were r super hungry when we sat down to eat. They did a great job of departing bus tour from regular reservations which we really appreciated. Service was very good and quite attentive but food was only average. Probably wouldn’t...recommend to others visiting the area.More

I have been to the Mystic 4 times in the past 2months. Meals were delicious but service is pretty slow- even if there are few people in the restaurant.

We have been staying at Sinbad's while waiting for our household effects to arrive, so its been almost 2 weeks. The dining room has great service, the staff are all very friendly and accommodating. We had some really nice evening meals- salmon with partridgeberry sauce,...steak, mussels, lots of really good local fare , very elegantly prepared and presented. The buffet breakfast that is included with your stay is good. Hot and cold buffet: bologna, bacon and sausage, sauteed mushrooms and tomatoes, pancakes/waffles/french toast, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, toast, muffins, cereal, fruit and yogurt. Decent coffee, juices or tea are always offered as well. A couple of times a week the chef does special egg cups with things like sundried tomatoes/spinach, cheese/chives, these have been a highlight during our stay . Really nice for a change to the usual offerings when you have been staying as long as we have. Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant!More

This restaurant was top notch. I had the opportunity to have late night drink, breakfast and a fine dinner here. With every visit I was given a very warm welcoming greeting and sat down in the lower level by the fireplace. Food was very good....The Strawberry Infused Beef Tenderloin was out of this world. Great combination of flavor. Breakfast was very good with plenty of options. Food was great and service was even better. Thank You.More

Lots of choice . Love the bread roll with the flavoured butters. Appetizers and main courses flavourful and piping hot. Not a fan of the dessert tray with the displayed non appetizing looking desserts. Service is slow.

Staying at the hotel after a long journey four of us decided to eat locally. Glad we did. Service was top class from very competent and well trained staff. Food was really good with all of us agreeing on that point. My onion soup, steak...and sweet were as good as anything I have eaten in Canada in the last ten days. Very good and the perfect end to a long day. Thank you.More

This quaint little restaurant offers the best food! Portion size is perfect. I have been here many times and have never been dissapointed! My favourite place to eat in gander. It's a little on the expensive side but perfect for "date night"
