I took my husband to Newfoundland for his birthday. We chose the Bay Roberts Hotel for an overnight to celebrate his actual birthday, because it has it's own restaurant, which gave us the impression that it's an upscale dining spot. The ambience is cold and unwelcoming. We asked to have the fireplace turned on, but it was not working... apparently... More

A pleasant surprise to find this very classy restaurant in the harbour town of Bay Roberts. Our last dinner in Newfoundland before returning home, we were pleased to find nicely cooked cod and delicious braised lamb on the menu. Friendly service and a view of the water at dusk made this a delightful ending to our vacation.

My husband and I took his parents here for dinner this past August while we were out visiting around the Baccalieu trail. The restaurant is in a hotel and not at all what you would expect for a hotel restaurant. The atmosphere is quite unexpected, beautiful and quite modern. There is a lovely seating area that overlooks the beautiful gardens,... More

The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and the service was great . Most of our meal was perfect... the Ceasar salad was very flavourful and the lemon torte was scrumptious. We did not enjoy the marinated steak with apple BBQ sauce, but everything else was great.

Never felt so humiliated,to be ignored and left feeling like you don't belong.To be seen and yet not as much acknowledge,made us feel like we were not good enough,we must not have been dressed the part or something."Disgusting",is the best way to describe the experience we had tonight,what would have been our first time to this establishment.good luck

We both had the fish and chips. My husband had the salad and I had a carrot soup. We both enjoyed our dinner! A nice view out the windows as we ate. And the people that work there are so nice too.
