We have been to the Final Approach several time in the past year. Each time our brunch was great! Nice surrondings and wonderful food. The vegetarian brekkie bowl never fail to tantalize my taste buds. We have also been there for lunch and the calamari salad is second to none.

Just had a Christmas Party dinner for 30 at Final Approach, and it was excellent. Delicious food, attentive and friendly service. Final Approach worked with us to plan the menus and make it a great evening for everyone.

Tremendous chef here. The food is beautifully prepared and presented. Wait staff is very pleasant and helpful. We have eaten here many times for both lunch and dinner. I would recommend dinner rather than lunch. Try it, it is worth it. View is great if you love airplanes and we do.

I have eaten here several times and the meal is always delicious. The menu is definitely upscale with a great choice available for every palate. The quantities are very generous with very nice presentation. Salads are always fresh. Staff are friendly and attentive. Ambience? View of the small airport tarmac with trees beyond. You can watch the occasional twin engine/12... More

We recently stopped in, hoping to be able to get a table without a reservation and were very glad we did. We had the evening's special, the seafood trio, starting with a very delicious seafood chowder. Our main course included halibut and salmon, both perfectly prepared. The halibut was especially good. This was our first time dining here since the... More

Nice and cozy place at Qualicum Beach airport. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner's there. They are reasonably priced and you get a good portion of food. Good fresh food. Service is good. They have coupons in the local paper for discounts Monday through Thursday.

This was the first since we had our last meal here while the ownership was on a transition so we did not know what to expect. My honey was glad to see that they had beer on tap and one of his current faves. We were both starving so we had the dry ribs to start with. As soon as... More

We have enjoyed a number of delicious breakfasts over the last few months. Highly recommend the Seafood Benny. Great Service. A great lift off to the day for us.

We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times over the past year. It's certainly an interesting location, great to be able to watch planes take off and land. I have found the food quality to be okay but not stellar and the service to be a bit inconsistent. On one occasion we arrived for lunch and the staff... More
