Hey judithyo, I think you may have mistaken QVFC for another restaurant, QVFC is a food truck that sells fresh local cod fish. No pork on the menu.

Their fish and chips were AMAZING! The chips were fresh, hot and SO good. They give you so much you can't finish. They were my first fish and chips in Newfoundland and I don't know if anything else will beat it now.

Enjoyed the cod bites and fries. Service was good and friendly. Paris well with the brewery options next door. Beautiful setting with fun coloured picnic tables. Note: Limited parking in the area.

No cod was ever fresher! Whoever QVFC sources it’s fish from must have delivered it straight from the ocean... Can be delivered to the Quidi Vidi brewery next door whilst you sample the local beers. Simply wonderful!

My husband and I are visiting from the states, and we have travel to several other countries. This place was recommended to us and we were not disappointed exclamation It's an outdoorsy type of place right next to the brewery, which by the way is...More
