Located in the quaint fishing community of Quidi Vidi, Mallard Cottage is the essential event destination for a deeply authentic Newfoundland dining experience.

Our versatile space, built onto the original Mallard Cottage (originating circa early 1800s), can provide an array of experiences. Our space is divided into two separate rooms, each easily customizable for your next reception, corporate function, or private dinner.


Our smaller, heritage portion of the restaurant provides a unique private dining experience contained within a National Historic Site of Canada. After a full restoration in 2013, the cottage preserved the original double-sided hearth, and provides a completely unique sense of warmth & ambience unparalleled in Newfoundland.

Because our food beliefs are so heavily reliant on the season & deeply commited to sourcing locally, our menus are constantly changing. We do not commit to set menus, rather work with what the island has given us on a day to day basis. We have a number of different service styles to fit your groups needs, including a la carte & family style options. We will always happily accommodate food allergies & dietary restrictions with sufficient notice.

Here are just some of the local businesses & food suppliers we are lucky to source our products from:
Murray Meadows, Lesters Farms, The Organic Farm, Bloom n Greens, The Seafood Shop

We would love to hear from you!
