“neat pocket cove”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Old, very picturesque fishing town. A micro mall with better than average craft shops. Quidi Vidi micro brewery worth a visit; tasting tour ($) not bad although beers sampled were nothing great but you'll get an idea of which one(s) you liked as it seemed it was the only "local" beer in NF. If you take a picnic lunch and it's a nice day there are tables you can sit at on a deck next to the water and buy a beer or two from the QV brewery store - very pleasant.

“Beautiful scenic fishing village near St john's”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Went here while on conference in St john's . Beautiful little fishing village , scenic and has it's own brewery. Apparently there was an iceberg that blocked the entrance to the harbor at one time so the people were unable to get in or out until it moved along , definitely recommend you check it out when you are there

“Beautifull”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

This pace was a short drive from Hotel. Lovely place to visit on it own. Has a little inlet from the sea with fishing stages and its own brewery.

“Neat little neighborhood”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

We hiked down from Signal Hill and ended up in this quaint and patchwork area, the battery. A neat way to end the hike. Fascinating variation of housing squeezed into the steep cliff sides.
