We had a lovely breakfast at the Final Approach. My husband enjoyed the hash and I ordered a la carte. The service was quick and efficient and friendly. There were airplanes coming and going and bald eagles circling the trees. It was a lovely morning. We would go again. The breakfast menu is not extensive, but it is adequate. I... More

This evening, a friend and I had the opportunity to enjoy dinner at this little restaurant, located inside the airport at Qualicum Beach. It was a superb evening ....... Cliff, our server, treated us with extreme kindness and efficiency. Our entrees included either a salad or soup. How good is that??!! Our meals were most reasonably priced, beautifully presented, and... More

The Final Approach Restaurant is a place I recommend to everyone. The staff is very personable, the food is cooked to perfection and the presentation is beautiful. The beet and goat cheese salad is absolutely amazing and the dressing is made in house. Very impressed! Thank you for consistently providing great food and awesome service!

We live within easy walking distance of this restaurant and check it out at least 6 times a year. We had spoken with the new owner last summer and vowed to go for breakfast, a new venture for the reasturateur. Finally we went this week. Staff is pleasant and welcoming, coffee refresher is offered frequently. Cooked breakfast is generous, bagel... More

I seldom order Reuben sandwiches but yesterday it was a superb choice! Marbled rye bread crisply toasted, lots of juicy corned beef, and just the right amount of sauerkraut. Not overpowering at all...mustard on the side. Well prepped and perfect with the day's soup. Great service!

This most recent visit was very good. The restaurant, located on the grounds of a small airport, is quite small with a small outdoor patio when the weather permits. The new ownership has achieved a good variety of west coast fare at very reasonable prices. The taste and presentation of the food was very good as was the very attentive... More

Fabulous meal with a waitress that sang happy birthday in several languages! Loved watching the airplanes coming in and talking about future travel. Make reservations as quite small and not a lot of room

First time to this restaurant today with my parents for brunch. The food was... okay. But I'm writing this review because the service was stellar! In a small town where the turnover can be quite high, it was really refreshing to have a server who not only knew the business and menu, but was genuinely interested in accommodating her customers....
