"Relish the butternut squash soup, peruse a few vegetarian options or sink your teeth into some caribou tenderloin at the Norseman Restaurant;. This is the best Restaurant North of Gros Morne. Time your arrival for sunset - you won't regret it."

- The Lonely Planet

"A meal here can be a much appreciated Treat at the end of a long road. The Norseman is one of the better fine-Dining restaurants in the province, with a similarly stellar wine list."

- San Franciso Chronicle

Frommers gives the Norseman 3 stars "The Norseman is rated one of the better fine-dining restaurants in the province, and for good reason. It has a great selection of wines, the freshest seafood, and Newfoundland game. You can actually visit the wharf to pick out your own lobster (in season), and your drinks will be served with genuine iceberg ice. There's a dinner theater during July and August, every Tuesday and Friday at 7pm."

“Fantastic restaurant in Newfoundland” "We read about this little restaurant in one of our tour books and decided to give it a try. What a great decision! We liked it so much we went back for a second night rather than eating the home-cooked meal at the Viking's Nest B&B which also sounded great. The caribou was very wonderful as was the fennel soup. We loved the food in Newfoundland but this was a cut above in every way. You go across the road to pick out your lobster and if the seafood and fish were any fresher it would swim away. The bakeapple cheesecake and the local liqueurs were outstanding. Great wine list, too. You don't expect a top-notch restaurant like this literally in the middle of nowhere. We spoke for a while with the owner about how the area had changed after the discovery of the Viking site. We also came back for the "theater" evening. Lots of good fun and merriment as we kissed the cod and became honorary Newfoundlanders. Go for the food, stay for the fun and visit the Viking site, too."

Trip Advisor

From Blog-Wendy and Brian's Great Eastern Adventure"Our tummies reminded us that it was supper time so we headed down to the small village and I mean small - I am going to take some photos and will upload when they are available. We had been encouraged to go to a local restaurant called the Norseman. A wonderful surprise!!! We had been walking in winds that Brian thinks were gusting to 80 kph. We walked into this delightful restaurant (that was not particularly inviting from the outside) to discover an oasis. It was warm, quiet, Enya playing in the background - soft spoken waitresses, pleasant aromas coming from the kitchen. The contrast between the raging outdoors and this calm, peaceful space was warming to the soul. After a glass of wine / glass of beer, we were served a fabulous meal presented with incredible style. I was replenished for our walk home through the wind and rain."
