Went for "A Taste of White Rock" with another couple. While the choices were good and the price reasonable, I expected to be wowed considering the event. The grilled caesar salad was not a hit with the others at the table but the smoked tomato soup was very good. Two had lamb shanks that must have been good because the... More

We ate at this restaurant on a Friday night in February 2016 with a friend during the Taste of White Rock week. Our dinner reservations were for 6pm. Luckily at that time of night, we got a parking spot across the street in the limited space of the pay car park there; otherwise, the next car park was about a... More

Very friendly staff. Chef Jan is right there cooking for you. Tried the set menu for Taste White Rock - very good. Would have preferred bread to go with the soup rather than crackers. Braised Lamb very tender - needed a bit of salt and we generally do not add anything extra to restaurant food. This is fine since we'd... More

Best salmon Wellington and grilled ceasar....brussells sprouts to dazzle your taste buds! My husband loved the gnocci. Great creations...we vow to make this our... More

Good little restaurant, and the owners are obviously trying hard to meet the needs of the community--like being open on Mondays when almost no one else is. But the kitchen could use a little direction on filling orders. The other day, a friend and I ordered a bowl of mussels, sides of macaroni and cheese, Brussels sprouts and garlic shrimp.... More

Met friends for lunch on a weekday. The menus selections were creative with lots of variety and gluten free and vegan options for those who require it. I had the roasted brussell sprouts with bacon and a side of mac and cheese - I was in heaven. My friends were very pleased with their meals and we all agreed we... More

Nice relaxed atmosphere. Interesting choices on the dinner menu. Across from the beach so great for people watching on the street. Coffee is always very good here. By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

We were able to get a table in the corner of the outside patio, and enjoyed the sun as well as the experience. The server was very welcoming and quick to take our order. Two of us had fish and chips, the third a hamburger. The chips were great, the fish not so much. The batter was a little "doughy",... More
