Canned peas ..seriously!!! The rest of the dinner was bland. And my cocktail tasted watered down. Never ever again

The rumor on the street was that this place had the best burgers in town, I brought my family to this restaurant and spent a small fortune on dinner, the burgers were very plain, nothing to write home about, very small servings we had to go eat somewhere else after. Very nice view of the harbour but that is it.

Visited the drive-in for burgers. The service was fine and fast. The burger itself was on the small side, with no condiments other that catchup and chopped onion. Nothing special. However, this place is an institution here, so I intend to give the indoor restaurant a try. For burgers, in Prince Rupert, there are better places. On the plus side,... More

The place needs a coat of paint and new curtains but on the bright side the food was consistently excellent and the view is even better. Make sure you get a window seat and enjoy the wildlife as you dine. We had seafood and Italian food on several nights and the quality was excellent every time.

We went to La Gondola with a friend visiting from out of town. The menu appeared to be unchanged since the 1950's. Heavy on the meats and sauces, light on anything vegetarian. The only vegetarian options were fries, onion rings, garlic bread and a very bland salad - iceberg lettuce with a few tomato slices and onions. This is not... More

Without question the best burgers in town come from the Drive-In. It's something about them being wrapped in the foil packages. The milkshakes are perfect too.

We had some of the Italian meals in the sit down part of the restaurant and it was not tasty...the atmosphere of the restaurant isn't good either....definitely skip it! If I want Italian, I honestly rather go and just get a pizza from pizza hut or Panago then go back to this place!
