Not fussy, just good food. I had a fish chowder and poached salmon. Chowder was okay, the poached salmon was beautifully poached although could have used a bit of seasoning but good nonetheless. My dinner companion had the pan fried cod and it was quite...good. Homemade pie for dessert with a really creamy ice cream. While there visit the craft shop - beautiful handmade stuff by local people. There are beautiful handmade jackets by a local woman at very affordable prices.More

Our boat driver recommended this place and said it had the best fish and chips and order it with home fries. Best fish and chips is used a lot, but this is the best I’ve had. Caught local, fresh and the crispiest fry I’ve had....I’ll return and recommend to all my friends.More

You can't beat this restaurant for delicious traditional food. The pan fried cod--YUM. Ditto for the chowder. If you want entertainment, go on a Thurs night in the summer when you'll be treated to a local band and the Mummers! Mummers are dressed up in...funny costumes and get you out on the dance floor to try traditional dances whether you want to or not. Great fun, great photo ops, and great stories to tell when you get home.There is also a nice gift shop. You won't be disappointed.More

Our motel proprietor recommended we go to Northern Delight (already on our itinerary) for dinner and breakfast as towards the end of September, most other restaurants were closed for the summer. We found it, about half way to Lanse aux Meadows. We were welcomed and...our server was very friendly and helpful. We ordered the specialty of the house, pan fried cod cooked well with canned peas and perhaps the coleslaw was a bit heavy on the mayo, but still it was wonderful. You had to try the dessert, deep fried icecream, again a wonderful end to the evening. The following morning we arrived for breakfast, the restaurant wasn't open until 10 am but as we were going out all day, we needed a hearty breakfast - ham, the best ever and eggs, toast and we tried the locally produced partridge berry jam. The decore is pleasant with many painting by local artists. The restaurant closes the last weekend of September. Well recommended.More

Just barely made it to the Northern Delight after a late arrival in Quirpon. B and b hosts recommended and did not disappoint. Good local (to New Foundland) beer and fresh seafood as one would expect. Good value , friendly service and pleasant surroundings.

The chowder is a meal by itself. Filled with seafood and served piping hot. Tried the cod tongues just because, and even though they weren’t really to our liking it seemed like they were well prepared. Very nice and friendly staff.

Great east coast food, generous portions and homemade fresh quality. The music and the mummers dancing with the customers was the highlight though. What a fantastic Newfoundland experience !!!

Friendly service !! A little bit slow because the placed was packed and I think only had two waitresses on! They were managing take out as well!!! Fresh crabs legs were so delicious !!! Then we had the combo platter! Scallops, squid, halibut and cod...were great, but the salmon was over cooked and cod tongues were not crispy enough for my taste! Fries dressing and gravy were awesome! Mummers and local music were a nice surprise! I think Norm and Pearce were their names! I really enjoyed the local music... Grey, Foggy Day stuck in my head ever since ! A highlight of my trip home to the Northern Pen ! Will be back next summer !More

Wonderful local restaurant. Friendly staff and quick seating. Place was packed when we went. Had pan fried scallops which were the best I had ever had. Fish and chips were also excellent. Local musicians gave a great atmosphere, costumed dancers got everyone up, good fun....Very fairly priced for good quality local food. Highly recommend over some of the other restaurants in area.More

We ate breakfast here twice, while on our west coast trip. Great service from young waitresses, well-prepared food, especially poached eggs, coffee was good, too. A handy place on the way to L'Anse aux Meadows, and the North Shore. Also a lovely little gift shop,...with local crafts, quilts, jewellery, knitting, with reasonable prices.More

I can share with you that we had a person with us allergic to shellfish, and he was fine. I'm not sure about gluten free. Maybe give them a call and ask.
