Great service

Good menu and we felt the fixed price version very good value. Go for the wines selection as well as this only adds to the experience. Really friendly service. Don't hesitate to ask for a Doggy Bag as we did for the dessert.

The full breakfast was lovely BUT the goats cheese omelet was horrible - tiny, hard and tasteless. They also don't have an outside sitting area (which is not nice in summer when the weathers lovely.) The service was good, however :)

We were going to go the restaurant, but we wanted something light to eat, so we went to the lounge, and the appetizers were half off, so we went to the lounge, it was good food, service was a bit slow, but overall good

Conventional traditional cuisine. Lots of dairy, wheat, sugar. Salmon dish loaded with sweet sauce. Bean cassoulet undercooked. Seafood pot or linguine has nice prawns, small clams and sausage pieces to fill in. Halibut was nice. Interesting sweet tomato jam on butter laden biscuits.

It looks like all breakfast meals include the continental buffet so a Belgian waffle, which was excellent by the way, is expensive compared to anywhere else. Having said that I had fruit and a cinnamon bun from the buffet, excellent. Coffee, which is part of the buffet, was very good and with the pot left at your table there's no... More

He barely spoke and got my order completely wrong! I asked him to fix it and he rolled his eyes. Will not be coming back. The hostess was nice, but that isn't enough.

As a former resident of the area I have eaten at Tigh na Mara many times over the years. It has always been reliable food, but the atmosphere was sometimes lacking. It looks like it was renovated in the last year or so, very upscale but comfortable. The fireplace area of the former dining room is now an attractive bar.... More

Evening meal was lovely. Good service, nice choice and the food was lovely. Very high quality, good flavours and we loved it. The peanut butter pie was great. Service friendly and not too intrusive Breakfast service was poor. The server wasn't overly interested. Didn't tell us to go up for the continental breakfast, just walked off when we ordered, we...

The Cedars is simply the best you will find on the island until you reach Victoria. The restaurant / bar almost seems out of place, like it's been transported from Yaletown. Friendly and knowledgeable staff with a world class menue. I have been half a dozen times and the consistently top notch service, beverages and food are now something I... More

Was not a busy evening only a few other couples. Service was tolerant but not what I would call friendly. Did what was required but nothing more. Food was not worth the price. Husbands bison was tough. My halibut was good but the veggies were raw. Did not leave with a feeling of value for the money spent.
