Norseman Restaurant and Gaia
L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland
The Norseman Restaurant and
the Gaia Art Gallery combine in
the same building to offer visitors a fine dining
experience. All art displayed on walls or
countertops is available for purchase.
This is a charming restaurant set
facing the ocean. If the weather gods smile, your
dinner will be accompanied by a gorgeous sunset.
I opted for their caribou
tenderloin, a specialty at the Norseman
Restaurant. It was tender and succulent. In
addition, the menu offers other equally tempting
dishes, including fresh seafood.
This is a fine dining restaurant
where slowing down a smidgen to savor great
cuisine along with a good glass of wine and a
delicious desert while watching the sun go down
does wonders for your state of mind.
I found service to be excellent
and, given the quality of the cuisine, prices
In addition, there is live dinner
theatre every Tuesday and Friday night during
July and August. Dubbed the "Newfoundland
Times", this includes skits, story telling,
theatre, and more, all relating to local culture,
history, and folklore.
The Norseman Restaurant and the
Gaia Art Gallery are within a short walking
distance of the L'Anse Aux Meadows
National Historic Site and UNESCO World Heritage
Site as well as Norstead - A
Viking Port of Trade.
