We went to C'Town last year, and really enjoyed 'The Gahan House'.... Great seafood, and you can sit in the 'restaurant' side (versus the 'bar' side) easily. Easy walk to the theatre... Try the bacon-wrapped scallops - you will order more than just one order!
Very impressed overall!
We will be traveling through the east-coast of Newfoundland in late-August and early September (2 weeks). We will visit the following areas:
- St. John's
- Baccalieu Trail (staying in Cupids, but will drive)
- Irish Loop (staying in Ferryland, but will drive)
- Cape St. Mary's Area (staying really close to the Cape, not sure what's close?)
- Trinity / Bonavista Area (staying near Trinity, but will drive)
When we traveled through PEI last year, we had some great food (small town restaurants, church dinners, etc.)... We are not looking for anything fancy, but true NFLD fare! Jiggs dinner, salt-beef, fresh seafood, local dishes, we'll eat anything and would love a 'local' experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks again -
We drove the Cabot trail two years ago - absolutely unreal. When traveling we *never* eat at the same restaurant twice... Except on this trip... We stayed in Pleasant Bay, and ate the best Snow Crab / Lobster meal we have ever had (caught fresh that day) for <$25pp. You get a half of a crab and a full lobster per person... The house white wine was unreal, and reasonably priced...
The restaurant was called 'The Rusty Anchor' and actually has a rusty anchor outside... Very small, with a great view of the water. Enjoy!
