Good food, great view

This restaurant has a magnificient view of the Strait of Georgia and serves substantial meals. The menu is primarily Greek but do not overlook their pizzas which are very special indeed. The service is friendly and courteous, the prices reasonable, and the food tasty, well prepared and... read more

Ate at Thalassa several times while staying in Parksville for a month. We had an excellent experience every time.

The view from the many windows in Thalassa is wonderful. Service is attentive, warm and friendly. It is a lovely room, nice high ceilings. We enjoyed our greek salads, all ingredients were fresh and delicious. The main course of chicken souvlaki was bland. The portions were large. The dessert, a cake with whipped cream, was so dry I could not... More

Not only do they have a great view you also get to enjoy watching the golfers putt around and make their first tee shot. If you like Greek food this is the place. If you're gluten intolerant they have one of the best pizza's around and even have gluten free calamari. The owners are awesome and all the staff is... More

The food is wonderful and the service is great. But fist play a round of golf. Before breakfast or after, before lunch or after, before dinner or after. I have... More

Food is very good, view is tremendous of the water but this place lacks atmosphere. Needs updating to make the place look less like a box. So much going for it but not enough to make me go back for dinner. Great for a quick lunch though.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Oura and her staff for making our son's farewell dinner on Oct 10th such a great success. The service and food were excellent! The seating arrangement (31 guests) was perfect! In fact we were still receiving compliments from our family and friends days later. We will highly recommend Thalassa Restaurant... More

Thanksgiving dinner at Thalassa was exceptional this year. The tables were attractively set with white tablecloths, cloth napkins and flowers and the turkey dinner, with all the trimmings, was delicious. The scenery - with a family of deer wandering across the golf course was glorious - and the staff were friendly and attentive as always. It was a very happy... More

We had an unpleasant experience here but in fairness, it may not be typical. Took my mom for her 85th birthday. Asked to sit next to the window to experience the view but weren't allowed. Waitress (possibly one of the owners) was rude and treated us like we didn't belong. Food was OK. Location and view are excellent. The waitress... More
