I had not been at the old location but my spouse was and kept raving about it. I really appreciated the range of beers on tap. The bartender was extremely knowledgeable. I also noticed that they had Teelings Irish Whiskey. I had toured this distillery while in Dublin. I strongly recommend to all whiskey lovers. The food was certainly different and original. Not really my type of food, but it was good and I appreciated the care placed into my dish.

I visited here on a Friday night for happy hour. They had a number of small plates and oysters on special. We ordered three small plates to share. The cauliflower was delicious! The service was perfect. Things that keep this from being a five star review: the food too what seemed an unreasonably long time to come out. I also thought the cocktail list leaves a little bit to be desired—I think they could go a little bit closer to old classics to have more impressive cocktails.

The charcuterie was fabulous We devoured it. My partner chose the ribs and pork plates and was very pleased. I chose the cauliflower and mushrooms on toast. Both were delicious. Loved the atmosphere. Be prepared to pay $$$

Our visit to St. John's coincided with the local excitement of a visit from the celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. Rumour was spreading that he dined here. Whether he did or not, it seemed great fun to think he might have. This was definitely our all around finest meal for the week's visit. Everything from start to finish was excellent and unique. Having watched a video at The Rooms on chanterelles in Newfoundland it was a treat to have the mushrooms on toast and they were sooooo good! It is a noisy environment though.

My wife and I had dinner at Chinched while visiting St. John's. My wife had the Pig Ear Fries which we both found too spicey and the Hand Cut Spaghetti which she enjoyed. I had the locally grown greens and the mushrooms on toast, both of which were well prepared and flavourful. For desert, both had the Pavlova which was exceptional. The restaurant is very rustic with little warmth or charm and the service, while pleasant, was fairly slow, in part I suspect because the food is prepared on the lower floor of the two story establishment.
