Located in beautiful Petty Harbour, Chafe’s Landing is located in a restored house that was constructed in 1878 by Edward Chafe. Edward was a fisherman by trade but he was also a reputable carpenter. In 1978 the king and queen of Belgium visited the province. As owners of the oldest house in Petty Harbour, It was passed down in the family for years. Edward's son was asked by the mayor of Petty Harbour if they were willing to have the visiting royals drop by for a visit. Many local residents still remember the day King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola dropped by to visit the community and have a cup of tea with the Chafes.
In 2007 we purchased the property and began the tedious task of restoring it. We recognized the importance of the house to the community of Petty Harbour and wanted to breath new life into the landmark. Time had not been kind to the house and years of neglect had left it dilapidated and severely run down. We've worked tirelessly and are proud to present to our guests with a rustic, authentic Petty Harbour experience while dining with us.
We're lucky to be very close to the ocean and as such are able to get the freshest fish there is to offer. Codfish is king in Newfoundland therefore you'll see a lot of it on our menu! Our fish and chips are a favourite among guests with our family's secret batter recipe and always fresh flaky fillets.
Our goal was simple from the beginning: Serve guests fresh, local food while treating them in a way Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are famous for - like family. We've got three generations of the Chafe family working with us along with relatives and close friends and we're always ready to tell you a story or two about our life here on the island.
