This is a lovely, elegant restaurant with stunning views of the quaint harbor below. Wait staff was attentive and quite knowledgeable regarding food preparation and wine choices. Every plate was served with fresh edible flowers, very beautiful. Great for a special occasion!

Great choices on the menu for everyone. Service was excellent. Breakfasts and dinner were wonderful as was the afternoon tea presented by the fireplace. Beautiful setting overlooking the harbour

I love every thing about this charming Chateaux and the extensive grounds, sculpture garden, amazing vista over looking Ganges Harbour, world class spa and restaurant and yet unpretentious at the same time in terms of mood, i just love this place!

The food was excellent but my phoned reservation (made 6 months earlier) mentioned a food problem that was completely ignored and was not dealt with. There is no flexibility in the menu -- be warned prix fixeé and no substitutions!

Too often a 5-star can coast until the travel books are updated--as has this place. Imagine a $100 a setting meal where the waiter serves over you, gives the wrong bill, says he has to leave early and where the very very ordinary wines are incredibly overpriced. Not to mention the desserts! The ice cream had clots of ice, the... More

Hastings House is the place to go on the Island for a romantic and truly gourmet meal. Most of the dishes are sourced locally & therefore are fresh. We loved all the little extras from the edible flowers & the bouche douche of tuna to start. Thank you.

The food was very good, but not worth the high price. The ambiance was very nice and the wait staff attentive.

We met some friends for cocktails and appies. I felt that the service was slow and not attentive. The server interrupted our conversation and was not of silver service quality....however, the smoked salmon was the best I have ever tasted, and I will return, bad service and all just for the salmon.

When we arrived we were very impressed by the history, charm and beauty of our surroundings, and thoroughly disappointed by everything that followed. The Hastings House is a spectacular spot: the views, the ambiance and even the set menus all seem perfect when you arrive--perhaps even worthy of the $80/plate price tage. We would have happily paid the high fare... More
