Went here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised as I had heard bad and good things about this restaurant. We sat on the terrace and the view is quite nice. The service was good and the food was delicious. The price was average for the area. We will be back.

Had dinner here a week ago. Great food and a wonderful view, right on the edge of the water. Perfect weather and perfect setting. Great service too. Couldn't ask for more.

we went for lunch which was okay, soup and sandwich ok, just not as good as it could be. Slow to seat us. Lots of staff, just not to organized, our server was good. Beautiful setting, hope there standard of food improves.

After a morning of hiking we stopped by for lunch. It was very busy but we managed to get a table outside on a glorious sunny day. The waitress was great. Explained it was busy and she would do her best to make it quick and she did. We all had the shrimp sandwiches which was very tasty and the... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on the recommendation of family members we were also on holiday with, who had dined there earlier the same night. We arrived at around 8.30pm, and the place was pretty empty. The front-of-house staff were friendly and accommodating. We sat on the terrace, with heaters on. Music was a little intrusive, but the...

Have gone 2 times and each time a very different experience. Great atmosphere, good food quality and the price point is spot on. However as others have noted, there is a very obvious issue with staff. Here we have an split between well seasoned, experienced professionals like the floor manager (who was excellent on both visits) and the young and... More

We went there for dinner and ordered mussels but was told there wasn't any. This was the second time in a week that they were out of them. The linguini was supposed to have mussels so we were told that more of the salmon was going to be served instead. This did not happen so the dish was really lacking.... More

Nice setting on the patio, friendly waitress. It took quite awhile to get our food but we were not in a hurry so it didn't matter that much. I had the pancakes and was quite disappointed. for buttermilk pancakes. They were 3/16 of an inch thick and crusty on the bottom, also they were just warm, also the plates were... More

On a positive note, this restaurant is new and modern (though for me lacks warmth), has a great ocean view and some interesting outside seating. After a disappointing meal and very long wait the first time and a hiatius of a month or so, we decided it was time to give the Qualicum Beach Inn another try. They still have... More
