The service was very good but the cost was too high for many families. We had 7 people so close to $200 for something we could have made for one quarter of that at home. Next time I will park at Colony of Avalon and...More

Perfect day, blue skies, white clouds, spouting whales, gourmet food. Make sure you reserve your picnic months ahead, if you do not have a reservation you cannot get a picnic lunch. After your hike to the Lighthouse you have a choice of sandwich and dessert....More

Love the idea and the execution on this . Climb to the lighthouse and order a picnic lunch served in a basket with mason jar glasses for drinks and take your picnic lunch wherever you wish and nosh and dream the afternoon away

We thought this would be a fun experience. It would have been nice if they had let us know that the paved narrow one way, no turn around road, would lead into a gravelled, narrow heavily potholed, full of water, no turn around road leading...More

Just returned from a wonderful first-time trip to Newfoundland, but I had to write this review ASAP. How does this idea pop into someone's head to reward hungry hikers with first-class picnic fare? We hiked in - it's about 1km one-way - and up the...More

It is not possible to drive to the lighthouse. For gluten free options it would be best to go to the Tea Room located close to Witless Bay on the main road. The views out to the islands are lovely!
Anybody know the cost of the picnic?
