For Garlic Lovers

If you love garlic this is the place to go. Had the quinoa salad and it was better than many others that I've had. Sangria was good. Desserts looked good but meal was filling

Last night we checked out this restaurant. We ordered our drinks which were served within 15 minutes. Our waitress said it was slow that night, but we waited for over an hour and a half for our food! If it wasn't for the fact we sat on the small patio, we would have walked away. When our Garlic Yum burgers... More

We were looking forward to our meal here yesterday(july 24,2015) as a result of TA reviews. He ordered a Halo Burger and sweet potato fries and aioli dip. I was going to order a burger and when i found it it could not be med-rare, I went for the fish fingers and the soup of the day: mushroom/spinach/chicken. My soup... More

My husband and I shared a sun dried tomato hummus and very much enjoyed it. Our meals were fantastic, great portions and lots of flavor. Great decor inside, and a cute patio. Staff was also great and my martini was delicious. If you love garlic, you will love this restaurant!

We were excited to try this restaurant after seeing their quirky decor and menu. Don't worry, the food isn't as 'weird' as you might expect considering the garlic theme of the restaurant! We ordered the Mezze platter and the Garlic Yum burger, and both were very flavourful without being TOO garlicky. The calamari was my favourite part of the platter,... More

This is a small funky friendly place with a real variety of food. We sat on the small patio outside. The staff was very friendly and the food was very good.

This place has been around for awhile and always looked forward to the eats here. Sadly a new owner and menu have taken over to refresh the old but still prefer the menu with garlic everything!!! However they did put extra garlic in the dish I had which made it very flavourful! The Brie cheese with Garlic is a must.... More

Hello DaMama4, Thanks for your recent review, I really appreciate the feedback. I am the new-new owner and as a local that has been eating here for the last ten or so years I understand that the garlic level has dropped off in the last couple of years. Luckily I have staff that have been here since the place opened... More

Yum yum yum!! Garlic was the star of the show at this cute downtown restaurant. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked incredible, I wish I could have ordered 10 different things off the menu! The food was incredibly flavourful and the portions were quite big! Food and beverages were reasonably priced. The waitstaff was really friendly too. If... More

A smaller intimate pub restaurant with an all garlic themed menu and décor (I can't understate their love for garlic here). Great selection of food and several local beers from the Nelson Brewing Co. and Whistler Brewing Co. - and they also serve local Cloud Mountain tea and Oso Negro coffee if you're unable to make it to one of...

Chef Tom served us up an amazing meal for some friends and I last night. The food ranges from refined, but simple, offerings of burgers and fries to high end cuisine full of fresh, local and in season ingredients. I had a quasar burger and fries - the aioli is unstoppable. My friend had the Salmon special with a salad... More
