Tried the fish nachos for the first time and have to say, I am hooked. I couldn't imagine not getting fish and chips but they really surprised me. The mango salsa really added to the dish. I would highly recommend this place.

The upstairs is my preferred area. It had a great atmosphere and view. I had the clams and my friend the deep-fried fish. Both were excellant.

We had lunch before going on a whale-watching excursion. Service was good and the menu was seafood focused. Meals were tasty and filling. A good place for lunch.

Chafe's is definitely off the beaten path (well, only about a 15 minute drive from downtown St.John's) but offers up incredible fish and chips (and other seafood options) in a quaint restaurant in a tiny fishing village. Cod is the heart and soul of the...More
