  • A truly wonderful facility that offers spectacular architecture, a beautiful view of St. John's and the harbour. We visited the art gallery, archives, restaurant and the museum. Everybody was so very friendly, helpful informative from the security officer's at the front to the front desk staff. We met a gentleman who worked in archives and he offered several great travel tips, history of St. John's and told us where the best fish and chips were.
  • Facinating Information. Spectacular view. Delicious fare. Friendly staff
  • Architecture is beautiful, great museum component. Food is good but expensive though the view is the best in the city. Small gift shop.
  • Food was excellent and service was perfect. Great experience. Thanks
  • Love spot. Great views. Adequate parking. Nice place to eat. Use of space is disappointing. Too much focus on the stairs rather than exhibition space.
