My son and I decided to try the Final Approach restaurant at Qualicum Airport. Though not large it's well appointed, tables set with cloths and great views of the airport activity through the many windows. Our server was pleasant, helpful and attentive without being a pest. But the crowning glory was the food. Good selection of dishes. Really reasonable prices... More

Our group enjoyed a variety of appies, desserts and drinks. The kitchen as well as our server took great care in making sure our individual needs were met (food allergies, vegetarian dishes).Our server (Cliff) was super efficient and entertaining. Cannot wait to go back there.

Have been here for dinner, but the first time for lunch. And it was a lovely birthday lunch (mine) at the end of December. The restaurant was busy but not crowded, and as usual service was excellent. Loved the little bit of dessert to celebrate my birthday. We will be back soon.

I have dinned here 5 times now since it reopened and I am just not liking what they offer. Sorry guys but I will not be returning... The service is always very pleasant and the view is very... More

Unless someone has told you about this place, you would never think to go. It is part of a very small municipal airport...I do mean small...which gives it a very funky vibe. Love watching the small planes take off and land while dining. The food is fantastic and the service is great. Something different for a dining experience and well... More
