We were fortunate enough to snag a table by the window and enjoyed viewing a glorious sunset – the show was fabulous! The meal was also great – well presented, flavourful and cooked to perfection. My husband and I shared a scallop appetizer – my...More

The three of us visited twice. Every dish was inventive yet authentic. The service is also attentive and friendly. The owner is a very nice person who writes children's books when she's not running the restaurant.

It truly is the end of the road as it’s the northern most restaurant in Newfoundland. The food was unexpectedly delicious and very much fine dining style.

Closed for season from September 15- May 27. Have a great winter! See you next spring! We focus on organic , fresh and local cuisine.. nothing processed. We have vegetarian choices like butternut squash , sweet potato with fresh ginger,roasted root vegetable, wild mushroom and others, salad made with arugula and kale, stir fry's, pastas, etc. We serve everything from local (mussels ,snow crab, lobster, cod fish, scallops, shrimp, halibut, mackerel, capelin, calamari, etc) .Local lamb, Fresh chicken with bone in and skin on., grade A tenderloin beef, pork and so many more choices. We use the local berries that ground in the area for the desserts. We only open from Late May until Mid September because that is when the food we serve is Fresh and available. We prefer not to open after later because it would compromise the quality of what we are trying to achieve and prefer not to serve over process chemically altered food.
