The building is very unique with lots of history and offers a different kind of experience we were eager to try out. The restaurant, however, still has to iron out some wrinkles after ownership/management has changed. There is no liquor license (even though the sign...More

Excellent food, nice seafood chowder, loved the berry crumble, loved the atmosphere. And the nearby root cellar!

We came to Elliston for the day to see the puffins. Having driven from St John's, we were hungry when we arrived, and a quick search on Trip Advisor revealed Nanny's Root Cellar Kitchen. We stopped by, and were delighted with what we found. Service...More

Had the best fish cakes with mashed potatoes and salad there! Highly recommend this restaurant if you're in the area.

In a former Orange Hall, easy walk from anywhere in Elliston. Nice service, we both had excellent chowder and patridgeberry crumble, along with other good Newfoundland dishes. If you're staying in Elliston or nearby, definitely worth visiting.
