Great view and good food

The restaurant is quite old and the furniture needs to be replaced but the food is good, view is great and service is kind. I ordered the chicken brie sandwich which had perfectly cooked chicken, herbed bread and a creamy cranberry sauce. The Brie had good flavour and fries were seasoned. Service... read more

We took our grandson and his great grandmother here for lunch. The service was excellent as the waitress was both pleasant and patience dealing with our hard of hearing elderly mother and a very chatty three old. The food was very good to excellent based on differing opinions and arrived quickly. While it is starting to look a little tried... More

We are locals and have eaten here before with no complaints. The place does need a renovation to brighten it up, and the food is basic but the beautiful ocean view is relaxing.. Today the food was good as usual but the staff was a little off. The servers were speaking together quite loudly from the bar. They were talking... More

While the food we had for dinner was good, it took more than 45 minutes to arrive from the kitchen. The server was pleasant, and the restaurant was not bustling at capacity. The seafood fettuccine and dinner salad were nicely presented and delicious at fair market value. However, the time it took to receive our meals and then our bill... More

Seafood chowder had little obvious seafood. The baby back ribs and the twice baked potato had clearly been purchased frozen at a wholesalers, possibly Costco (they looked familiar). The cheese plate for dessert left a lot to be desired - stale crackers and not so fresh cheese. One good thing though was the service was very good.

Every time we eat here it was just bad. The only reason we kept going back is it was close to were we had to go. The management really needs to make a better effort. The poor staff the the chef the worst and the quality of the food the worst. The worst steak I have had. Time to do... More

We visited recently and enjoyed a beautiful ocean view in the sprawling but dated restaurant. The menu selection was quite extensive but perhaps offered too many choices for a restaurant that was far from full on a weekend. Our food was average but the couple that ordered fish and chips beside us seemed pleased. The wine was good and the... More

Restaurant was recommended to us by friends who live nearby. Wonderful view of the bay. Ended up there on the cusp between breakfast and lunch. I had lunch, husband had breakfast. Both were great. My salad was beautiful...presentation amazing...but the salad dressing was missing. Everything else was great, and waitress got me my dressing asap when requested. Garlic Prawns on... More

Travelling with my wife and elderly sister-in-law, we stay at handicapped accessible accommodations - often with adjoining restaurants. While at the Quality Resort Bayside, we decided to have our breakfast on location at the Bayside Bistro and Lounge. This location has an absolutely stunning view of the Strait of Georgia (Salish Sea). Up early that morning, we were treated from... More
