Enjoyed a Sunday evening dinner on the Island's fabulous deck overlooking the Kicking Horse River. If the view wasn't enough, our black pepper fettucine and the special of the day (snapper) were tasty. The staff was helpful and friendly, a lovely place to enjoy a meal! Looking forward to our next visit, may try for breakfast so we can enjoy... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the Island Restaurant. The service was great, the food awesome, and a wonderful view. Love the sound of the Kicking Horse River rushing by. Unfortunately, it began to rain, but the wait staff was nice and moved us inside. It was a little disappointing as we had looked forward to eating on the patio,... More

I've eaten at the Island Restaurant many times and the food is always fantastic. The hostess Petra and my server were both a bunch of fun as always. I had the Black Pepper Fettucine which was fantastic. The house made pasta and garlic toast were amazing. Every time I'm in Golden I eat here and it never dissapoints. I can't... More

This is a lovely welcoming restaurant. We are on vacation from Ireland and just arrived here without recommendation. Staff friendly and interested in customers. Food most enjoyable and tasty. The lamb cutlets ( one of the evening specials) were beautifully finished in a mint flavoured sauce delicious !! Deserts excellent especially the apple pie made from home grown crab apples... More

The whole experience was fantastic, definitely worth the time spent ♡! After a days drive through the mountains to relax in a hot spring , then a cruse back through. This was the absolute most fantastic way to end the day!! Thank you so very much. .

This place has an extensive and awesome menu. I've eaten here a few times and have never been happier to spend my money at a restaurant. The staff is always very friendly and super helpful. If you're there when they are offering the crabapple pie - make sure to order a piece cause it is hands down the best slice... More

An excellent menu with interesting dishes. Try the platter 5 starters all beautifully cooked on a very large plate. I had scallops squid pakora spring rolls and shrimp tartlets with 3 different sauces. First class cooking at reasonable prices

Four of us and a toddler ate here for dinner on our last night in Golden as we'd passed it a few times and seen that it had good reviews on here. Everything about this place was great. The decor, atmosphere, service, and most of all the amazing food. Two of our party had starters (which the other two of... More

Brought two colleagues to the Island. Petra the hostess with the mostess and our server were great. Brought some samples of the beer on tap so RB could choose the one he liked. Royal myagi oysters on the shell to start. RB and I ate the most but TN bravely got down a couple. I had the elk rizzole with... More
