Mallard Cottage anchors the local dining scene. Feast on Newfoundland game, seafood, and produce in a restored 18th century cottage—all in Quidi Vidi, the fishing village within the city.
O’Brien’s Music Inc. makes traditional Newfoundland music lovers happy for good reason. Here, visitors can buy everything from accordions to ukuleles to CDs. Better yet, attend a pickin’ parlour session!
The Merchant Tavern, like its sister restaurant Raymond’s, is all about good food—just in a more casual vibe. Look for an open kitchen and on point cocktails, and do try the vinegar pie.
