We were on our way to the Western Brook Pond tour, so stopped in for an early lunch. Their wraps were delicious. I would've liked to come back for a meal, but we ran out of time.

Ate here twice during three night stay in Rocky Harbour. Great setting, with lots of quirky art and character to the building. Floors are not level. Superb, fresh food and great selection of wines in a relaxed atmosphere. We were three. Can't reserve, so be prepared for a wait ( we brought books the second time). First time wait was 10 minutes - around 8:15. Second time, Saturday, we got there at 7:30 and seated at 8:30.

We had a lovely seafood dinner here; service was friendly and the food was excellent! It is not open on Friday evenings for dinner.

Food was very good, service was very slow. They were accurate with how long we would have to wait to be seated at a table, but the wait time between appetizer and entree must have been 45 minutes. The vegetables were freshly picked and nicely prepared. My pork tenderloin was moist, juicy and nicely seasoned. My husband's salmon was OK

We barely set foot in the door and were greeted by a lady with no Newfoundland accent. We were very much looking forward to dinner based on the reviews as well as mother spoke about it.

As we were waiting for someone to greet us, said lady...the owner I think, very rudely greeted us. I was very set aback by this......as this behaviour is very rare on the island. Mom, who had eaten here before and dad, as well as my wife really wanted to eat here but all refused after being blind sided by the greeting. We were not out of line in any way. We did not slight her in any way. We are always respectful and polite in private and public.

I have read several other reviews on here about similar poor behaviour. So we know there is a problem. Since we were fairly sure it was the owner that was greeting us; leaving was the only option. Our party of four stepped aside for a moment and spoke quietly. We ultimately agreed that we could not save face and we left. The food may be good here but the attitude absolutely stinks. We know many people that visit this area and all are told to steer clear of the establishment. We will absolutely never return. Owner: get your act together. You do have a boss and it is your customer.
