Returning in 2020 and would like your best recommendations for good places to eat fresh food....(not interested in fast or fried foods)...if the world was perfect a menu with allergans listed...but freshly prepared real food.

What are the best places you dined in while in NL? The Daily Catch on the northern peninsula was mine (saint lunar-griqet)....other than that pretty disappointing. Needs to be casual attire/think jeans because I am that kind of girl with a husband to match.

Here's an interesting list.... I just searched on "fresh food restaurants Newfoundland". There's lots more, but alas, I have no first hand knowledge of any of them....

Thank you, I pulled a couple from that with gluten free. I was using google maps for restaurants in newfoundland and pulling them out from there. Not a lot of choices but some would be nice...sure I can find something in St. Johns if we go there.

It's all good info for us, as well. We still plan on getting out there, too. Just no idea when.
Unless Rte 389 in QC gets a major facelift/fixup, we'll have to do the NS to NL ferry. Not looking forward to it.

Not sure of MDKMDK's reason but sometimes the crossing can be rough. They also cancel crossings last minute due to weather. That happened to us last time we tried to go. Was quite a while ago though. However, the experience itself can be very pleasant.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

So far no rough for me and would not want to do rough....sunshine and then one night crossing that I was a bit nervous about (got washed on shore at night in sailboat in florida keys and I am NOT a sailor). I think next time we will do night as we have dog and I KNOW she will be sleeping at that time...as opposed to being in the rv all by herself (tried to talk hubby into staying with her/no go).

My co-pilot isn't a good floater. I think I'm OK, but you never know. My longest open water sailing adventure was many years ago on the Mariposa Belle for a corporate event. Needless to say, there was plenty of liquid courage available to make a landlubber forget we were on a boat. I don't recall needing it, but it was a long time ago. Also, we have an elderly cat.

MK! Then do the Quebec 389 to labrador highway. SLOWLY! The most difficult part would be the trucks (booking it!!!) on 389. Somehow we managed to time it that they were not up our tail...HOWEVER there was a WIDE LOAD behind us quite a ways (that we were not going to let catch up to us)...those roads are wide but soft shoulder so have to careful on that. They are winding with some straight aways especially towards Manic 5. I see you have small units which makes it easier. 389 is the highway to the mines so big trucks are using it. I am pretty sure they are not moving at night though as they had packed in Manic 5. We left Manic 5 heading south at 4am (I woke up asked hubby if he wanted to move now with no trucks up are buns and he was all for it)....watch out for wildlife.
If you are both not fans of boats, then this would work with way less stress.

Nothing is off the table, but....
My concern with 389 is the high cost and inconvenience of repairing stone chips, radiators, and windshields, in the middle of nowhere, if it's mostly a gravel track with speeding trucks on it. That's what got us 4 years ago on the Alaska Hwy. Less likely to happen on a boat, but there's the dilemma. I think I'd be fine, but she probably wouldn't. 6-8 hours one way, then repeat, might be too much for us.
We'll see, still in mull mode.
There's another smaller ferry from Natashquan, that runs (much slower, 34 hours end to end, apparently?) along the north side of the river out to Old Fort. I'm sort of looking into that one, as it makes frequent stops at the villages along the river along the stretch where 138 doesn't exist. It would provide regular breaks in the voyage.
