Back in June when I made the reservation for my birthday dinner at the QBI I specified I wanted a table on the patio. Two further phone calls to check the time and increase the numbers also repeated that we wished to sit on the patio. All of the above should have been enough you’d think to ensure that you... More

Went for dinner with my partner, while the service was ok to good the food was a major let down. The tapas were great but the main course meals were not. My partners salmon was overcooked, dry and cold when it came to the table while I was told by the server my steak was a thick cut it was... More

Having heard poor reprots and even seen the reviews here we were concerned when invited to join a large group for lunch. Our fears were quickly dispelled. Although the restaurant was extremely busy the meals were served very promptly for our whole group and were very good. The service was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience given other... More

Great service from the waiters, Tappas were great, both of our main course meals were very poor. I could not recommend this place to anyone wanting a decent meal. If they have a chef, the person must of won their ticket in a lottery. What a shame for The Qualicum Inn to have a cook like that on staff.his

We were very excited to go for our first lunch after opening of the Qualicum Beach Inn, but what a disappointment. They may want to get a chef in there that can cook. The food was beyond bad, do not waist your money. It is really to bad that they could not have opened with fully trained staff (that are... More

The recently re-opened Qualicum Beach Inn was well worth the wait. Having gone through early growing pains and the on set of guests that had been patiently waiting during the long renovation period the restaurant seems to be running smoothly now. On a rare rainy day we sat inside in a setting designed to be what I can only describe... More

Have been twice now and the food has been great. Sat outside in the patio area and really enjoyed ourselves. So great that qualicum has this great new resturaunt. Nice to be in the presence of a younger generation and boutique type atmosphere ! Will be going again.

The restaurant is beautifully designed. The fish was well cooked, but had a slight ammonia smell and taste. The medallion potatoes were heavy but interesting. Since I have a garlic allergy, I got dry coleslaw ...from a bag?...on my plate. No attempt to do something else. Other diners' plates looked good. Service was mediocre, not bad. I expect they will...
