Food was excellent, service was efficient but extremely robotic. The grilled veggie panini is amazing.

After a tour of the gallery we went up to cafe. It may have been a bad choice on our part but we wanted to know what they could do with fish cakes. Apart from charge for them, they could do very little. Little being taste, little being amount of fish and little being service. I will say that thank goodness we ordered a salad, which was tasty, but not exactly a meal complimented by rather ordinary Quidi Vidi brewery "1896". Perhaps it was our bad luck in the choice of dish, but the cakes were almost totally devoid of any fish. a rethink by the chef on this dish is urgently needed.

As for the view it was marvellous, but we could have had the same view from the deck without paying for the privilege.

Nice spot with a great view for a relaxed lunch. Food is good and servers are friendly. The menu has lots to offer and prices are reasonable. There is pay parking in front and wheelchair access available. After lunch, take a walk through the displays and exhibits of The Rooms museum and gift shop. Always lots to entice you.

Visited the rooms during one of the first, which will be annual trip to St. John's. Enjoyed lunch with an old friend from College. Service was efficient, the staff were extremely friendly and food was hot and delicious! Will definitely recommend to future clients!

Tried the featured special, BBQ pork belly over scalloped potatoes and baby spinach.
Carmalized pork belly was perfect, scalloped potatoes not overly creamy, just the right texture.
My wife had the Lobster Nicoise Salad, Lobster super moist, fresh greens and the dressing was not overpowering.
Great place for lunch after the art gallery and museum walk through.
