I ate the Mumbai which is a garden salad with red peppers, red onions, salmon fillet, candied pecans, canned mandarins and curry Dijon dressing. Excellent! Followed by a dessert recommended by my lovely server the Caramel Ganache, which was a chocolate delicacy worthy of royalty. It's inspired recipes like this that will keep me from ever having washboard abs. Thanks!

This has always been my favorite restaurant in Castlegar and we eat out a lot. The menu is constantly changing to match what is fresh for the season. You wont be disappointed.

Stopped in for lunch with a friend while wandering around Castlegar checking out sculptures. The food was AMAZING. It took forever to decide what to order because everything on the menu looked delicious. Eventually settled on the Coca-Cola Pulled Pork sandwich. It was the best. My friend has the goat herder salad and loved it. Surprisingly good food for a... More

It's no secret the food at the Element has always been very good. As someone who has reviewed this place every year, I can say I've noticed an over all new sense of harmony with the new chef. The dishes are very nicely delivered and quality control/attention to detail is there. It also seems like this improvement has radiated all... More

Ate here a few times, the foods always been pretty good. The only times I got good service is when the male bartender serves us.. I would return to eat. Wouldn't ever waste my time going to the night club. Seriously, what "nightclub" in a tiny town charges cover charge? Not for an event or anything, just pay $10 to... More

The food was good. Fare quantity. The service was good,. The downside was that our table was right below a cold air vent which was blowing directly on me. I had to wear my winter jacket all through the meal

We have lived in Castlegar 2 years now and always find eatting out a challenge ....until today. We heard the food at the Element was the best in town but it was a bar and definitely didn't seem like a good spot to eat. What were we thinking? Hands down, the best food in Castlegar! Great food, great service and... More

The Classic burger with fries and a glass of draught beer turned out to be the perfect lunch. The burger was, I believe flame broiled, cooked with just the right amount of char on the outside and juiciness on the inside. The delicious bun held together despite all it contained. The fries were crispy, hot and delicious but we could... More
