My family and I ate here for a pre- wedding celebration. Lovely patio, good food (esp the pasta dishes). Booze on the pricey side. Service was attentive.

I enjoyed a very good meal at this restaurant,it is just tucked a bit out of sight. The menu was quite diverse and quality was very high. I had salmon that was truly...awesome. The side salad was was totally fresh and exploded with flavour. Dessert was a Key Lime. Sadly, (I am an expert Key Lime Pie face-stuffer), although fresh,... More

Yummy Italian food, nice wine list. We both had pastas and they were very good. Ask to sit outside on the patio.

The general quality is good, but some dishes are great, and some are less great and could stand for a redo. The freshly prepared seafood was very good on our last two visits, but the smoked salmon (home made gravlax?) was just so so, as was the mushy beef carpaccio. Both of the lesser dishes seem to have sat out... More

Got there just as the kitchen took it's break after lunch/before dinner. That's ok. Seated us right by the waterfront on the deck, we order a couple of glasses of SSI white, some bread & olives and we people watched the boardwalk. Nice! When the menus came so did the daily specials. Good choices. Went for pasta with a little... More

I've been to auntie pesto's about ten times in the last five years. Usually it is fantastic. Used to be delicious pasta every time. There must be a new chef or something because this time it was bland and was made with zero passion. The only reason I ate it was because I was hungry and it wasn't awful. I'm... More

We dined hear the 2nd night of our stay on Salt Spring Island. Enjoyed the meal and our server was really friendly and accommodating, especially when the halibut entree came out severely over cooked - she took the pains to make sure I received a freshly prepared one even though the kitchen was almost closing (and I am sure the...

Had a great halibut sandwich - wrapped in prosciutto with truffle mayo - good but at $22 a bit much. I know it's an island and it's good, so, if you go, be prepared for a largish tab.
