    The Norseman Restaurant is a traditional Newfoundland restaurant in L'Anse-aux-Meadows. A great place to sample the local heritage, it also includes the Gaia Art Gallery, where you can buy paintings made by local artists.

    We ended our day trip in L'Anse-aux-Meadows with a special dinner theatre presentation (there is one every Tuesday and Friday at 7:30p.m. in the summer -- check with the restaurant to know more about the dates), which told the story of L'Anse-aux-Meadows through skits, stories and traditional music.

    The fun evening ended with guests being given the opportunity to be "screeched-in" (i.e. become an honorary Newfoundlander) by successively drinking a shot glass filled with Screech (the local liquor), kissing a codfish on the mouth, and saying the tongue-twisting "long may your big jib draw."

    Favorite Dish: The dinner theatre included pea soup, chicken, "fish & brewis" (codfish and hard bread), a side of carrots and an outstanding blueberry crumble for dessert.

    Even if you can't catch the dinner theatre, the menu is varied and the food is good. Highly recommended!

    Smith's Restaurant: Home Cooking!

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Sep 5, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not far from Smith's - the Lookout!

    The name is not fancy, but the food is great! Smith's is located along the main highway close to both the whale watching dock and the Viking historical settlement - you cannot miss it. The exterior decour is nothing fancy, but the dining room is very nicely done and there are some nice views out over the harbour.

    Favorite Dish: We ate there a couple of times and I remember really enjoying both dishes. I believe that one of them involved scallops but this was in my pre-VT days, so my record keeping is slipping! However, I do remember thinking that these were amazingly good meals - and I have eaten at a lot of places! We paid about US$30 for the two of us to have a full meal plus a couple of beers and wine, as well as the tip!
