First off, yes the food is great. I've been there twice. The male servers are quite attentive. The first time I came only for apps with a friend, and we took quite a while deciding, because everything sounded so good! The waiter was understanding and...More

Great Mussels...I had the pan fried cod with a herb butter, which was tasty; my companion had the daily special of salmon stuffed with pesto and goat cheese, reportedly excellent as well, Good service, good wine list and pleasant atmosphere.

I don't know why a restaurant would put anything scented at a table that wasn't food. Each table has a small oil lamp full of scented oil lit and while subtle, it definitely effects the taste of the food. The food itself is average. It...More

First of all, this restaurant is so cute, it is perched on the side of a really steep hill, is brightly coloured and attractive and is about a 2min walk from downtown St. John's. Although the outside is quaint the inside is very modern with...More
