I was there with a group for a special occasion so I won't include our main dish but I had their pea soup as my appetizer and it was amazing! We'd just come from hiking Lookout Point and I wanted something warm and hearty and that is definitely what I got! Delicious flavours, I could have had 3 more bowls! The staff were so lovely and inviting and the front room has beautiful views of the Harbour.

My partner and I ate dinner on two occasions at this Inn. Food was delicious. We ate delicious fresh cod and a variety of roasted vegetables. Service was very friendly and informative.

Breakfast needs to be more varied as it tended to be rather monotonous with same offering each morning. May I suggest pancakes, bacon, sausages, frittatas, etc.

We ate here twice and the food was delicious. If the lobster dumplings are available order two servings! Nice wine selection, lovely ambiance and the view! You have to see it to believe it

If you are looking for fine dining with high quality food and elegant atmosphere this is your only choice in Woody Point. Your next equivalent choice is in Neddies Cove or Rocky Harbour, close enough to be almost visible, but about 80 minutes away by road; such is the geography of Gros Morne National Park.

The setting is elegant but casual, in the sense that there is fine linen, glass, and cutlery, and the wait staff is well-dressed and generally knows what they are doing, but as this is a holiday destination, with hiking as a primary activity, the guests are expected to arrive in casual dress. If you can get a window seat, go for it, as the view of Bonne Bay is quite beautiful.

While there is a choice of traditional meat dishes, the emphasis is on seafood, quite fresh, and well-prepared. Service is efficient, and helpful if one needs information on a particular dish. Our young server freely admitted not having some answers, but then went off to get the information we asked (rather than making it up, as can happen!). The restaurant itself is relatively quiet, with no televisions, although there is occasional infiltration of noise from the adjacent bar, but not loud enough to be disturbing.

As it happened we were here for dinner on our last night in Newfoundland, and so we splurged a bit on wine, appetizers, mains, dessert and cappuccinos. But it was all worth the amount charged, and with a good tip the total bill was still less than for a far more indifferent meal at another fine dining restaurant visible across the Bay, but a long drive by car.
