It is a magical place where you can imagine romatic tales; a flaxened hair Viking and a Beothuk Indian romance( That is forbidden by their clans). An angry sea captain of nobel blood who forbade love between his niece and her young handsome , exciled lover. The captains anger was so intense that he marooned them on a cold desolate island in the North Atlantic.
Come dine with us and ask your server to inspire your imagination with tales of L'Anse aux Meadows.
