After visiting the lighthouse we stopped in for lunch. The fish and chips were fantastic and served with typical friendly Newfoundland hospitality. The only regret I have is not buying a jar of jam on the way out because so many people in town told...More

This restaurant is an absolute hidden gem in Bonavista. Seating is limited, so there is sometimes a wait to get in, but it is so worth it. They manage to find some of the freshest fish served in town, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Staff...More

Yummy soft serve cones that are a great price! Treat yourself after a hike along the coastal trail or a visit to the lighthouse!

Great place to stop when sightseeing on the coastline. Cod tongues are great but the ice cream is the best. Had a Sunday with partridge berries and fresh whipped cream. Friendly service. Great view of the ocean.

Generous helpings of comfort food (read: greasy), including fish as always hereabouts. Fish and chips, cod tongues, etc. For a change, I chose the steak sandwich which came drenched in rich gravy. This isn't a place for dieters! They were very busy which wasn't surprising...More
