As much as we enjoyed Neddies Harbour Inn, this attached restaurant failed to impress. It has all the earmarks of a fine-dining establishment, with an interesting-sounding menu, but the dishes that we ordered were pretty mundane, e.g., the seafood risotto was really what the Venetians call risi e bisi, with pieces of seafood inserted into it; the pork shoulder was...

Our meal was just ok and over priced. I would not recommend this restaurant. We ordered the seafood chowder which was bland and lacked seasoning. It just tasted like cream and flour. Portions are small. My wife was served an entree instead of the appetizer she ordered (the dish was small so we did not notice), but the server was... More

The ambience of the dining area is very Spartan and not very well layed out. The door to enter the room takes you right into the seating area. The door... More

Thank you for your review. I appreciate your remarks about the layout of our restaurant, we like to think of it as bright, cheery and uncluttered. We were limited with the lay out of the room and I'm sure that there are better floor plans but we are working well with what we have. I'm not sure how to respond... More

This place is the only fine dining in the park. The place at Sugar Hill does not compare. Warm welcome, friendly staff and waitress, great food. Unlike Sugar Hill Inn, when the staff make an honest mistake they admit to it and rectify with class. I would eat here twice over trying Sugar Hill Inn. Oh an here they know... More

You wouldn't think of gourmet fare in the middle of Newfoundland, but this restaurant could be put up against any of its peers in the big cities of the US or Canada.

Gorgeous view from the dining area. Located within or next to Neddies harbour Inn in Norris Point, close to Gros Morne Mountains. Excellent breakfast service and choices. Menu for lunch and super are of top notch quality. Service is good.

Excellent food and service. A.very pleasant surprise. The resturant itself looks very understated and uninviting at first glance. However the food and wine selection are great and the views amazing. Highly recommended !
