Cape Spear Lighthouse Historic Dinners

 Cape Spear Lighthouse Historic Dinners

Dine by candlelight on gourmet cuisine prepared by some of Newfoundland and Labrador’s finest chefs while you enjoy stunning views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from the 1836 Cape Spear Lighthouse. 

Imagine candlelight flickering on the walls of Cape Spear’s authentically restored 19th century lightkeeper’s residence as you savour a truly unique dining experience. Take a table within the province’s oldest surviving lighthouse with its panoramic views across the wild Atlantic Ocean. Savour diverse and exquisitely prepared local cuisine. Some of the province’s finest gourmet chefs perform culinary magic here on Sundays throughout summer during the Cape Spear Lighthouse Historic Dinners experience. Enjoy old world ambience to the gentle tunes of traditional music and remember to watch the waters outside the windows – where else might you see a drifting iceberg while sipping cocktails or a breaching Humpback during dessert?
