We live on the coast and don't generally eat seafood when we are away from the coast. We had halibut and prawns that were both very good. They actually did it right.

Back to the Kootenays recently on business and took some customers to the Element. They had never been thinking it served typical "pub" food. I already knew the quality but they were blown away. Tasty Flatbread and curried prawns to start and then a tender sirloin topped with tabasco infused butter (the highlight!) for the main. Great Meal! I think... More

While travelling through Castlegar on a golf trip, we were fortunate to find the Element. Our meals were first rate, and the service was impressive. The table shared a number of appetizers, including curried prawns, lettuce wraps, and fish tacos. Quality of ingredients was high, especially on the seafood. As a entree, I had pad thai which was excellently done,... More

Went with a family group, ranging from young teen to 84y old. All could find something they liked on the menu. We ordered a wide variety of items, and all were well prepared and served piping hot! A wide variety of beers, with good recommendations from the wait staff for the various tastes at our table. Normally, we would go... More

This was a family lunch. Service was very good. Waited a long time for food order. I think I saw the cook go on a break! Tomato soup of the day tasted like canned spaghetti sauce...looked like it too! Good size portions. The menu is way to large to serve justice to all items. Specialize on a few and make... More

Our family was waited on promptly, and service throughout the meal was very good. The menu is large, with a wide variety of options. The calamari and rib appetizers were acceptable, but the salt and pepper chicken wings were overcooked and lacked seasoning. The Moroccan lamb shank, served in an impressive tajine, was very sweet, with an abundance of apricots... More

Thank-you for taking the time to write a review. We personally called your cousin Beverley to discuss your experience and to explain what happened (She also reviewed our establishment the day before). It is very very rare in our establishment that there is a multitude of errors at one table. Unfortunately yours was one of them and we apologize. We... More

Although our most recent visit to the Element had a few glitches in the menu items, the server was excellent in her handling of our concerns, plus we received a follow up telephone call to apologize for any dissatisfaction we may have experienced. However, I do feel that to advertise couscous with the lamb and then serve rice is quite... More
