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...

The lady and I headed here for some dinner one night. It was down the road where we stayed, and some of the reviews we read helped in picking this place. There were big expectations, but the results were somewhat underwhelming. The crab cakes were a bit dry and tasted of that carbon filter material you find in a Brita... More

Great view, attentive service and an amazing ocean view. It doesn't matter whether the tide is in or out the view is spectacular from this dining room. The many window tables are prefect but the view is there for all to enjoy. Huge glass windows! I have eaten here many times for both pleasure and business. Dinners have always been... More

A friend and I were dining out on a Saturday night, we chose to go to the Bayside Bistro firstly because the views from the restaurant are beautiful and the vista before you is the whole of Parksville Bay and beach area, with plenty to see and admire. A request had been made at the time the reservation for a... More

great food and service although the music was too loud for us but when we asked to have it turned down to a conversation level, it was done cheerfully

We found the soups on the menu excellent. The main course was average. To replace the potato on the plate, I asked for extra vegetable, however, it seemed they only had broccoli. The second night I again asked for vegetables and again only broccoli. There was no variety or mixed vegetables.

Had lunch here and some wine. Great view of Parksville area beach and beautiful day. Ordered halibut and chips, halibut done in beer batter, too heavy, nicer if it was tempura type batter, fries good, cold slaw ok. Waitress very accommodating and friendly. Certainly adequate and ok lunch but better oceanview places in the area. View is the draw here.... More

Usually the attached restaurants are mediocre, but this one was quite good. Friendly service from the staff and our server, Chad. The prime rib was nicely done, Yorkshire pudding good etc. the next day we had the Bistro burger and that was also quite good. Typical resort restaurant pricing but lower than most I've seen. Burger was quite thick and... More

We booked a family table for a sunset supper at the restaurant. The ambiance was perfect, the service fairly good, but the food when it came was really below par. We ordered sandwich plates for the most part as our guests did not like seafood, the weather was hot and none of us felt like a really big meal. The... More
