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

This was a pleasant surprise! Tucked away from the road, located right on the beach - this restaurant has a beautiful outlook and I can't wait to check the outside patio out when the weather gets warmer. And...bigger surprise - the food is very good. Have now been there twice for lunch and, each time, really enjoyed the food, as... More

My husband had the two eggs his style and I had a veggie omelette. We were both satisfied with our breakfasts. The service was fine. The food was good. The price was average for eating out at breakfast. I think his was $12 and mine was $14.

This is a great place to have lunch or dinner. The view across the bay at Parksville is amazing. The food is very good and so is the service. There is lots of choice on the menu for all tastes. The dining room is not really child friendly. They also do a good job of catering to groups of all... More

Four of us went to the Bayside on Sunday evening to enjoy their Sunday Night Roast Beef Dinner. Our friends had been several weeks before and told us about it and how they had enjoyed it so we all went. The dinner offers a soup or salad, the main course and a dessert. I had the soup and my wife... More

Had a great evening at the Bayside Bistro. The waitress was very friendly and helpful and sat us at a window table overlooking the ocean. They have a good menu to choose from and both my friend and I enjoyed our meals very much.

This restaurant used to have a beautiful buffet and was great for special occasions. The view is still spectacular but now breakfast is al a carte (with only three choices available) and the quality is mediocre. I ordered their "standard breakfast" (two eggs any style w/hashbrowns and bacon, ham or sausage). It was $10. for two poached eggs (done soft... More

I have eaten here several times and always enjoy my meal. There are many excellent choices on the menu and they have great specials. The prices are much lower than all of the other hotel restaurants in the area. You can tell that they use quality ingredients and they have a well trained staff. Most of the servers have worked...
