prawns cooked to perfection

The outside of this restaurant is deceiving, on a side street beside a used clothing store but the food is amazing. I ordered the prawn basket and the prawns were cooked to perfection - cooked but they snapped when you bit into them. The bisque sauce on them is delicous. The Cauliflower soup to... read more

We walked in, and got a very uncomfortable feeling. The server was so rude we turned around and walked out.

Don't let it's unassuming exterior trick you into thinking this little restaurant is something you can pass up. The food was wonderful, and I mean every bite! You can really tell the chef actually cares about every plate being served, and so do the servers. The waitress we had was so attentive and made our experience a very pleasant one.... More

What a terrific foodie experience. We had dinner and enjoyed everything from the amuse-bouches to the entre (snapper) and we were treated so nice. A real treat to have a chef who cares about what he serves and wait staff who care about their patrons. The only recommendation would be to work a little on the atmosphere/furnishings in the restaurant....food... More

I liked all in this small and cosy restaurant: interior, food, friendly atmosphere. But still, the main impression left the food and service. Prawn Basket with Salad was amazing!! Will come back there with my husband soon again. Thank you for unforgettable pleasure!

Excellent food and very friendly service. I like to visit at least once a month for lunch and it is always a treat. I recommend the bisque - and anything else you see on the menu. Easy parking right out front.

For consistency this is the best restaurant in Courtenay. Food is locally sourced and always a great fresh sheet.

From the moment we walked in the door, (close enough to the hotel to walk and enjoy some wine) I just knew it was all about food & Service, The menu & specials were well described by our server/owner. We started with some fried Brie, in a very interesting graham crumb & sessame coating served with seasonal berries and other... More
