Cafe napoleon is now owned by Cutie formerly of C & C and is now open Wednesday to saturday evenings as well as lunchtimes. The menu is very interesting and I had lamb chops which were the juiciest and tastiest I have had for many years. Atmosphere and clientele good and some good wines. Give it a go.

Visited this lovely restaurant based on other reviews to learn it changed names as of 8 Nov 16. Belinda, the owner, serves all things local and does a fabulous job. I would recommend this quaint restaurant for its value and taste!

The staff was so accommodating. We went in for lunch and the folks made breakfast for our children. I was determined to try some local food. Napoleon did not disappoint. We will definitely go again on our next adventure.

Right in the heart of historic Redcliffe Quay, Cafe Napolean offers a quite break from the hustle and bustle of downtown St John's on busy days. The menu is varied and suitable. As a cafe it's not expensive and has great clean toilet facilities which might interest some tourists.

We stopped at this small cafe for lunch, excellent quality, reasonably priced and the owner is charming too. We are staying Sandals nearby, but if you come in on a cruise ship , look for Redcliffe Quay and the Cafe Napoleon

Wonderful for a quite coffee or salad for lunch. Look for this coffee shop, especially if the cruise boats are in, and it is shaded and quite

Beautifully nestled in the heart of Historic Redcliffe Quay in St. John's, Cafe Napoleon was formerly an old sugar warehouse by a busy dockside. Sympathetically renovated, the restaurant serves a cosmopolitan menu using the finest fresh, local fish, meat, vegetables & fruits. The homemade desserts are just mouthwatering!
Dont want to eat, then just chill with a Cocktail in the new Lounge Bar looking out at the beuatiful gardens and watersedge. You can be certain of the warmest of welcomes and excellent customer service from owner, Lisa and her team.
