The best place in town. Try the blueberry scallops. When it's crowded it gets a bit noisy, though. Recommended.

This really is the ONLY restaurant in Gander. It won't win any rewards for ambiance, but the food is just wonderful. Service is fast and friendly and the prices are very reasonable.

Very tasty food with some unique dishes. Great staff and lovely decor. My only criticism is that the restaurant can get a little noisy as the dining area is one large room.

Went with a group in the middle of a blizzard, they kept open for us on a miserable night. Food was decent- a set 3 course menu for $35, with some interesting choices- not usually what I expect for dining outside of St. John's.

Bistro On Roe was certainly a treat. The food was fantastic and beautifully prepared. The ambience was contemporary, decorated with a splash of colour by the beautifully displayed traditional local art. All four partrons in my party were all satisfied with our meals. I had...More

I would consider this restaurant to be in the mid-price range. Not cheap but not overly expensive. Certainly felt it was excellent value for what we ate. Quite honestly the food we had was amazing. Very much above average... More
