Slow kitchen, but pleasant service

The kitchen was very slow, but the servers make up for this. Food was really good but a little on the pricey side.

While hotel restaurant catered to large groups, this restaurant offered nice dining. Seafood was excellent and our server was very responsive and cordial. The views are fantastic from every table in the restaurant. The only downside is that you can not have a drink on the outdoor patio if you have children with you.

Often reluctant to use hotel restaurants but this was really something special.from the moment we arrived and was taken to our table and was greeted by our waitress Teresa. A very good selection of drinks which were delivered as we went into the menu. Appetiser were out as we had seen the size of the main course and the desserts... More

We had the corner window seat so the view was spectacular over looking the water. We ordered seafood - lobster and steak, it was perfectly cooked to our liking and elegantly presented. Make sure you have a reservation if you want to eat earlier, the restaurant fills up fast especially on the weekends.

We wanted to eat a good fish here on the coast so we decided to to the Waterfront restaurant. I ordered the butter fish with brown rice and fresh vegetables while my friend had a salmon and halibut. Both were so delicious! If you search a good seafood kitchen I recommend going to this place.

My husband and I had breakfast at this restaurant (located in the Crest Hotel) and the food was excellent .... inventive and very tasty. I ordered the lemon raspberry pancakes and they were superb. Light pancakes with a very light lemon flavor with ribbons of raspberry purée throughout - worth the trip. The service was great and the view of... More

We ate here 2 mornings. One morning I had mango cream french toast - very good. But the first morning I had a maple bacon pecan waffle - chopped up bacon & pecans in maple syrup that has been cooked down to the consistency of caramel. Spoon it over a crunchy waffle - Wow! the chef is a genius.

We were happy with our meals. I had the Canadian Bacon burger with salad, it was really good. The Belini's were tasty. For desert we had 1 sticky toffee pudding, that we really liked. Our daughter had the molten lava cake, it didn't have any lava, the waitress replaced it with a new one which was better. The service was... More
