We tried this restaurant previously for breakfast and were disappointd. But now, some months later, decided to give it a go again. Once again, we were served a very substandard meal. The eggs were actually cold, the sausages were cold, the side of grilled tomatoes consisted of one half of a small (1.5 inch) tomato slightly grilled, the side of... More

Ocean views, great food, clean restaurant with stylish decor, excellent service and a great varied menu with reasonable prices. A definite place to take visitors, and guests to our area. The patio outside is amazing with heaters and a fireplace. If the wind factor or weather is an issue or concern there are glass panels to sit behind and still... More

Our wait person was one of the worst we have ever incounterd. She had no knowledge of wine or beer, but tried to bluff her way with incorrect answers. She assured my wife would get shrimp on a skewer with her salad, but in fact she received a lum of shrimp on the side. I never received my salad, so... More

Took a visitor from Germany to Vancouver Island and had a stop in Qualicum Beach. Dinner at the Qualicum Beach Inn was very nice. We managed to get a table at the window with a lovely view of the ocean. Good selection on the dinner menu and the wine menu also. The food was delicious. Our server was friendly, although... More

We had lunch here today, three of us ordering the Caesar salad side. What happened to the romaine lettuce!! What was served was the "bottoms", whole, and therefore awkward. It was yellow and white, what did they do with the upper green leaves! The saddest we've ever seen. Shame on you chefs !

Nice room , Great renovation. But guacamole on a unseasoned Rib eye? The worst steak I've ever had. Costco has processed tapas better than what I ate there. Seems like the restaurant is very confused about what they want to be, the menu is all over the place. Should stick to some basics and do them well

The last time I saw that much turkey in a sandwich was I made it myself at home! Service was first class. Most... More
