Home cut fries, pan fried cod, great little place to eat. I was happy with the experience, it is friendly, but facility is smaller with basic ambience. Service a little slow.

We stopped here because someone said the chowder was great...not so much the night we came. It was served barely warm and I had a problem getting the attention of the server to have it heated up.

Friendly staff serving Newfoundland fish and some other edibles. We both had cod. Nicely battered with tons of french fries. There are lots of other items on the menus but cod worked! Ask why the table is shaped the way it is.

The Cod Jigger Diner family restaurant is located in the centre of Fogo Island, approximately 20 minutes from the ferry. A place where you can stop by for a coffee break and find directions to anywhere on Fogo Island. Grab a snack or sit for dinner, enjoy a full menu from Chester fried chicken to our very own Fogo Island cod. We also have accommodations right next door, stay at our four bedroom guest house and share your experiences with other travellers, have the whole house to yourself. We provide a full kitchen where you can prepare your own meals, a large common room and dining room. Each bedroom has comfy beds and tv. Quite common to see caribou all year long especially in late fall. Our central location is great, it's about 15 minutes from all communities and points of interest. You will be pleased with your experience on Fogo Island.
