excellent waterfront view full of activity. Youcan watch the huge ferries docking almost on top of you. Food quality is excellent with a friendly staff that can give you hints on places to stay.

This place wasn't bad, but has nothing to recommend it. It is a typical waterfront seafood restaurant with a totally predictable menu.

We had a nice evening meal here and very much enjoyed getting to watch the semitrailers loading onto the Newfoundland Ferry. Fish & chips were good, seafood chowder excellent, service quite good as well. Maybe Black Spoon has trendier or better food but they don't...More
