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.

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. I had chocolate pate for dessert and it... More

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.

The view was very pretty, and the restaurant was in a charming old house which had an interesting history. Things went downhill from there. The wait for service after we sat down was about 10 minutes. I love seafood and very much enjoy the local seafood in the northwest when I visit that area. I was astounded that none of... More

The views of the harbor from the Hastings House restaurant are magical. The food is on another level to being exceptional. The artistic presentation is very romantic with fresh flowers on each course. Definitely worth every penny.

For the second year in a row my husband and I visited Hasting House Restaurant for my birthday celebration. Again we had an artfully presented meal, as delicious as it looked. The scenery out the window is enchanting, transporting you to a world away from the shabbier neighborhood it resides in. We always forget to arrive early enough to enjoy... More

Stayed at the Hastings House for two nights for our anniversary in July and booked in the Post Cottage, which was the original Hudson Bay Post Office. I would highly recommend this accommodation for anyone wanting privacy and exclusivity as a couple as it is the only free standing structure for 2 ppl on property and very charming. The gardens,...

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!
