Really nice family or couples restaurant

Our hotel was full for dinner so we went to this place on the recommendation of the front desk clerk. We were not disappointed. The service was professional, the food good and the price reasonable for a higher end place. We were satisfied after dinner so we skipped dessert and went for a walk😀.

We booked here on the back of trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed the food was probably the best we have had in Parksville with lovely fresh vegetables and good oysters they were gorgeous, and as for the desserts my husband never usually has dessert but really enjoyed the cheesecake!

We arrived without a reservation and were shown to a table immediately. We were actually attended to by the owner himself. What a great time we had with him. We loved his sense of humour and it made our evening out with friends that much more interesting. Now for the food. It was spectacular from the drinks, appetizers, main course,... More

Food was superb as usual. Service was a little slow because they were understaff and had not expexted so many customers that night. But still a lovely evening.

We had a lactose intolerant diner and there were no problems adapting menu choices as required. Varied menu with the emphasis on fresh fish. Oysters so fresh they were sweet. Had the bouillabaisse and the fish was perfectly cooked, tough to do in a broth! Friendly efficient service, only $102 with wine for 2.

This is one of those places where looks really good but the food was not good enough to praise it and not bad enough to complain about it..we just would try to find another place while in town!

What a pleasant surprise this restaurant turned out to be. We had a reservation and on arrival the hostess was not happy with the table they'd assigned us, so she asked us to wait just a few minutes and she moved us to a table along the window. A knowledgeable waiter arrived promptly, where we learned they were out of... More
