Have been to this restaurant twice now.Once for brunch with friends and once for a business dinner.Each time food was cold,tasteless and some dishes came with the added touch of burnt edges.Service slow.Will not be back.

First time there, mid afternoon, very quiet. Service and food was good. We had the chicken quesadillas which were nicely flavoured and piping hot. This experience alone would have received a 'Very good' rating'. HOWEVER....... This time, busy lunch time and even though I had reserved a day before, we were poked into a table with no view except the... More

Fine modernization of long time Old Dutch Inn. Prized location on the beach, aiming for top standards and attracting capacity crowds of locals. Outstanding food, moderately priced, staff all experienced and good.

As the Old Dutch Inn this was a cosy & enticing place with really good food & yummy breakfasts. As Qualicum Beach Inn it's (thus far) pretty sad. The decor is 'unfortunate' in that the style is seldom seen outside of Vegas, & not at all in keeping with the outdoor surroundings. Our breakfasts were disappointing: served lukewarm, & my... More

We drove past this place morning and evening for 3 weeks before realising there was a restaurant, the C View, there. We'd eaten in every other place in town (working away from home) and had found some good places but still welcomed a change.. This place provided it - TOP quality food for the same price as you pay in... More

My husband and I had reservations for 6:00 p.m. on Jan 1st, 2015 . We were seated by 6:05, and a waiter appeared soon after. Our drinks, and appetizers arrived quickly, and were good. We both ordered steak dinners, and our steaks were done to perfection - very generous size steaks. Our waiter was extremely good, we have had him... More

The Old Dutch Inn is under new ownership and is now called the Qualicum Inn. For the past four years my husband and I have been going to the Old Dutch Inn periodically for breakfast. And for the past three years we have always chosen the Old Dutch Inn for our New Years morning breakfast. It was always such a... More

I really want to love this restaurant. Great atmosphere and the drinks are very good but the food is so meh... I had natchos the beans were so dry (not cooked) no cheese, the Mac and cheese tapas is so bland..I really hope the food improves.

Great new look, I just wish the food and service matched. We recently took our employees out for dinner and found the service and food to be average. For a expensive restaurant like this I expected not to have to send my steak back for being way over cooked, and having to go get a drink menu from the bar.... More
