A splendid meal after a fabulous hike! A breathtaking view along with seeing the pod of whales and the historic rock gardens was a wonderful experience! We look forward to returning soon!

First time in Grates Cove, Newfoundland! Had the loveliest, most memorable, and relaxing stay thanks to Terrence and Courtney! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and for introducing us to every lovely aspect of this little town! Great hikes and great scenic view. Hope to come back.

Paula from Olivia Canela

"We were starving and the richness and burst of flavours of the etouffe really hit the spot. This was just a small sample of all the delicious food we would be having at the Café the following days."

This place is a little piece of heaven. It makes us consider living here. Can’t believe the people here wake up to this view every day. The food here was simply amazing. I’ve eaten Korean pancakes many times before and yours has been one of the best. We will definitely recommend your restaurant and B&B to friends visiting Newfoundland.

"This was the experience I was looking forward to the most, and it didn’t disappoint."


A diamond in the rough and rugged coast of the Northern Avalon, Grates Cove Studios was well worth the (quick) jaunt from St John’s. The vastness of the place was stunning and beautiful, but most special was Terrence and Courtney who run the very unique and welcoming ‘studios’. After a tour of the area and accommodations, I knew this was a proper gem to be revisited and explored for years to come. The offerings brought out from the kitchen were first-class and there are enough activities, sites and hikes to suit whatever your mood or tendency. Can’t wait to go back for longer than just a day-trip!
