The Norseman Restaurant and Gaia Art Gallery
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.

General impressions:

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 quite reasonable.

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.
