we serve a freshly prepared meal in our licensed dining room overlooking
Trinity Bay. Our kitchen draws from the ocean, freshwater ponds, seaside
meadows around us and our kitchen garden in season.
"Where to Eat in Canada" rated Fishers' Loft (2 stars). Here's what they said:
“Fishers’ Loft is in Port Rexton, which is about ten minutes from Trinity, overlooking the old harbour of Ship Cove. The bedrooms, each with a private entrance and an ocean view, are bright and carefully furnished. Non-residents are welcome in the dining-room, which many people think as good as any outside St. John’s. The kitchen gets its supplies from the sea, from fresh-water ponds, from seaside meadows (where local farmers raise pré salé lamb) and from their own vegetable garden. The menu changes several times a week, but a typical meal will begin with carrot-and-ginger soup or a green salad with partridge-berry vinaigrette and go on to baked cod with seasonal vegetables, ending with a chocolate torte in a blueberry coulis. Nothing is overstated and everything tastes exactly as it should. They have a useful wine-list and every night they put on a pre-theatre dinner so you can take in a show at the Rising Tide Theatre in Trinity.”

food critic's review
food, capturing the fine balance of perfecting interesting
flavours without being fussy and over the top. Most importantly
all the food is drawn locally from the ocean, freshwater ponds,
seaside meadows and their kitchen garden, when in season.
This is food as it should be and each night is different,
depending on what's fresh and available.
dinner begins at 5.30pm, while the evening meals
begin at 7.30 and it really is a great treat. The dining
room has stunning views over Trinity Bay, has some good
wines and is certainly the finest restaurant, in Newfoundland,
outside St John's. It's also wonderfully low key.
Also, for star spotters, this is where Kevin
Spacey and Judi Dench, etc stayed while filming the Shipping
News. So if your dinner is too good and the wine too tempting
you can always stay the night (though in the summer it does
get very booked up so if you're clever book ahead!)
