Birthday Treat

We recently celebrated my husband's birthday here and had a lovely time. The grounds and Hastings House itself are spectacular, as is the view of the harbour. Food was good, price wise, this is probably a 'splurge' restaurant.

The good was the quality of the food which was quite exceptional as was the service, the bad out of three orders one was forgotten and started after the other two were delivered, a small salad was offered as consolation. The ugly having to sit and watch a constantly opening kitchen door with a view of the fridge and milk... More

Meals are inside the Manor House in which the bistro side is with the fireplace and prices were more moderate. The other side is fine dining with a more expensive menu. Both sides were classy in their own right. The menu had offerings that varied for any taste and the food in the bistro was exceptional. The wait staff were... More

I think this restaurant although good is over priced. The service for the price is only OK. Good quality food and very well presented. The wine list is very overpriced and given the choice this is a place where it would make plenty of sense to bring your own wine. I don't usually do that but I'm too familiar with... More

You will not regret visiting The Hastings House for dinner. It is expensive but is a true dining experience that lives up to the cost. It is by far the ONLY place on Salt Spring Island for fine dining. It is a gorgeous place, the restaurant is very intimate. Comparative to Sooke Harbour House on Vancouver Island. Our server was...

We have been trying to go to the Hastings House when we are on Salt Spring, but we normally travel off season, due to our business. they have been closed the last couple time we have been there. It was open when we were there last week. We went Sunday evening and the 3 of us thought there was no... More

The 3 course meal options provide numerous selections to chose from. The options are superb. The food is cooked perfectly. This is a wonderful dining experience.

Hastings House is a special place, and on our "must do" list each time we visit Ganges, BC. On our recent visit, our lovely dining experience reinforced our previous very positive visits. This is a place best reserved for a special occasion, but it does not disappoint. From our entrance through the magnificent gardens and grounds to our warm reception... More

This old house with a dining room that looks out over Ganges harbour is in a wonderful setting with manicured lawns and flower beds extending down to the sea. The menu is usually impressive, the food preparation better than adequate and the service very competent and attentive but.... the cost is excessive.
