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 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.

It was open when we were there last week. We went Sunday evening and the 3 of us thought there was no... 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
