Our family went for dinner and had a wonderful time. The food, service, server and ambiance were great. We truly thought this restaurant was well worth the visit. I had the baby back ribs which were perfect. My husband chose the tapas and had four different ones. He was impressed by all, especially the chicken lollipop and the grilled cheese... More

The first time I went to the new restaurant, I took a friend for her birthday breakfast. We ordered eggs Benny, after about 15 minutes we were informed there were no Benny's as the cook messed up the sauce. Ugh! Utter disappointment! I managed to give this restaurant a second chance this time with my husband and family, there was... More

My husband and I had a fantastic anniversary dinner here. I was a little sad to see the Old Dutch doesn't exist any more, but they have done an amazing job of remaking the place. We sat outside on the patio, had a beautiful view of the sunset (across the street, but whatever). Both of us had delicious cocktails, followed... More

We sat in the patio area and did not go inside. You can see the ocean but have to look over the parking lot. The menus were designed to be safe and please the average person. The choices are typical for this type of restaurant. Fish and chips, baby back ribs, pasta, pizza etc. in other words it is a... More

Love this place for the drinks and the view .. But had hair in 2 separate plates of food- services was extremely slow, took 15 minutes until someone came and took our order.

If you are going to offer 4 varieties of eggs benedict; atleast learn how to make the traditional version. My husband's unusually, small sized eggs were hard as rocks & the hollandaise was beyond pale in colour; (read white). Not an herb or a garnish to be found. The sauce was bitter & tasted of chemicals. I am convinced it... More

Enjoyed lunch here. Heard this establishment has just been completely redone and it looks great. We sat on the outdoor patio, Qualicum beach right across the road. I enjoyed shrimp soft shell tacos, complete with sides of guacamole and salsa, bf had tuna seared rice bowl, wonderfully sculpted on the plate. We had a look inside at indoor part of... More

I was really excited to try your restaurant since the beautiful remodeling was done. Great location and wonderfully done inside and out with one VERY crucial problem the food was terrible! We are local and everyone I have talked to has said the exact same thing. The servers were great but apologized for the food and how the food came... More

Had dinner last night with my husband and 11 yr old son here. We spend a lot of time in Qualicum and love it for so many reasons. Fine dining has not traditionally been one of them. The opening of Cuckoo in Coombs a few years ago meant we no longer needed to travel to Courtenay For a decent dinner.... More
