Local delicacies and traditional dishes are highly recommended wherever you find them. Having “a good feed” be it “Jigg’s Dinner” or “Fish n’ Brewis”, “Cod-Tongues” or “Figgy Duff, “Toutons” or “Peas Pudding” can be a memorable part of your NL adventure!

The Avalon Peninsula (outside of St. John’s) is sparsely populated and restaurants rely heavily on visitors. While the isolation is a key component of the rich culture often restaurants may only be operating from June to September and may only offer deep-fried or grill fried food. We recommend that no matter where you plan to stay, research the dining options in that area.

The Claddagh Dining Room requests a 24-hour RSVP for menu selections in order to guarantee availability.

For convenience simply use the drop-down menu and special request block on our booking request form to reserve your menu selection while selecting your room!
