Just love this place. Food made with care, not just slung on a plate. This was about our 8th visit. Never disappointed!

A great place with a good menu to select from at a Airport setting. It has a patio dinning area and is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Friendly staff and service, can get busy some days. You can get a meal to go if need be. Food is fresh and good. Located at Qualicum Beach Airport.

This was my first visit to FA since the change of ownership about 2 years ago (full disclosure: the previous owners became friends) and I was hoping to be impressed. The first thing my server mentioned was the half-price appies and I was tempted by the Starter menu. Of course, half-price appies are a substitute for the increasingly frowned upon... More

The menu is small but the food was fresh and tasty , well presented with great friendly service., We will always come and have lunch here... More

We ate dinner on the patio on a hot July evening, mainly because we arrived without reservations and this is a small place. Even though it was too sunny and hot to be enjoyable; the food and service were excellent. The menu is small with only a few options, but I had a seafood pasta dish that was done to... More

Aahhh.....this is a real little surprise! A smart little restaurant (white table cloths !) with big marks for quality fine dining. Who woulda thunk you could find such a great little place with a good menu and wonderful view. Enjoy top chef entrees while watching planes land and take off at the Qualicum Beach airport. My favorite is their fresh... More
