A lucky find

On New Year's Day we planned to go to the 17 Mile House, but they were closed and we fortunately spotted the small Open sign for the Stickleback Eatery a little further down the road. The view of the small cove was lovely and very West Coast, and we both enjoyed our meals very much (seafood... read more

The Stickleback Eatery was our destination after a great day touring from Parksville via The Pacific Marine Circle Route and we were not disappointed. We read the reviews on this restaurant prior to our departure and we were not disappointed. The chowder and salads were super tasty and abundant for the half order. The atmosphere was very nice and the... More

We ordered the halibut, not the fish and chips though that was also very good but the dinner. The sauce was amazing, the vegetables were crisp and delicious.

We have been cycling to Sooke year after year and it's become one of our favourite holidays! We enjoy staying at Arbutus Cove B&B and the first time we ever stayed there we walked along the Galloping Goose trail into town so we could find a place to enjoy a lunch together! Well, after a 20 minute walk, we bumped... More

We visited here on a Sunday night and it was pretty quiet and we were seated promptly and the service was good and attentive. However the food was not enjoyable. The menu is pretty relaxed and casual which is fine, if it is also tasty, but the things we ordered were not well put together. I wanted something light so... More

If you are cycling the Galloping Goose trail out of Victoria, turn left at KM 40 and head down the hill to this restaurant. Great patio for casual dining and with a varied, interesting menu this restaurant commands a unique location near Sooke. Coming from the prairies our group went for fresh fish and chips and cold beer. The food... More

We loved the tsunami fries, and the fish and chips. A little slow on the service side for getting your meal.

This was a great casual dining spot. We relaxed outside with a nice view of an adjacent bay. The food and service were terrific.

We were exploring Sooke and looking for a spot on the water to have a nice lunch. We found this spot and loved it!! A beautiful day and we sat outside where we were able to watch kayaks being rowed to shore from excursions around the bay.

My family and I liked this place so much we visited twice during our week long stay in the Sooke area. The food was good and we had no issues with any food items. We sampled the halibut, thai pasta bowl, baby back ribs and a wonderful carrot/coconut/ginger soup. We also had some wings at our table and they were... More
