We went for breakfast with friends to the QBI. The view from a window table is spectacular. We saw a few sea lions playing amongst the sea birds. The menu was varied and reasonably priced for a higher end restaurant. Our waitress was polite, efficient and accommodating for all our requests. The... read more

We recently celebrated a 70th birthday at this restaurant. We had heard mixed reviews about the place, so listened to those who told us everything was improved, so we decided to try it again. The dinner was lovely and 3 of us had the mussels as a main course. We each chose a different preparation (sauce), and everyone was pleased... More

My wife and I got the invite back in November for the Christmas Staff Party to take place on December 18, 2015. To say the food was incredible really seems like an understatement. The food was unbelievably decadent. The snacks and hors d'oeuvres were incredible! Lamb chop lollipops, various pates, and things on a stick, along with crackers and cheeses... More

I've often heard it said that really good serving staff is hard to find. That's because they are all at the C View restaurant! First up - our own table server was Dougal, to be known as "Smooth as silk" forevermore for his service and intelligent information on menu items and wine choices. His description of the wild sockeye salmon... More

Very slow restaurant service and the food was not worth the $$$. We make better pasta at home. Super not recommend this restaurant for families, maybe it is just not family place...? We just went there because we knew nowhere else to go. And we all were tired and hungry and the restaurant was the closest from where we stayed.

The 'QB' Inn (formerly the Dutch Inn) was purchased by local interests with the intention of a massive overhaul. The renos were completed last year creating a first class Inn with a pool and a new restaurant and lounge beyond comparison in Qualicum Beach. The restaurant allows you to sit inside or weather permitting, sitting outside {which also has overhead... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights the past weekend. We had breakfast and really enjoyed the Eggs Benny. I had the daily smoothie. Really thick and delicious. Service was good. We will certainly return.

My husband and I have had lunch twice at the restaurant, once in September and just last week. Both times the food and the service was very good. My husband loved the burger, had it a second time last week. I had the bacon onion lettuce and tomato sandwich on a wonderful chewy, crusty alpine bread. The hot blueberry tea... More
