We enjoyed an excellent meal here of fresh fish and chips. The restaurant is set near the water and has a pleasant but casual ambience. We found the prices to be very reasonable.

Nice establishment with a nice array of souvenirs and gifts. Wines are all Newfoundland berry varieties some of which were quite interesting. Full menu restaurant with some local favorites and, of course, iceberg water!
