Excellent delight of flavors

Menu changes daily. You get a four course meal, with three choices for each course. Each course, including desert, has an abundance of fresh greens (they grow much of their own), other vegetables, and seasonings. I've never had so many flavors in every dish. Well worth the visit, but pricey. We... read more

Sooke Harbour House impresses me every time I go. The rooms are charming and comfortable, the view is lovely and the food is divine. Imaginative menus and expert preparation of local ingredients mean you will discover new combinations every time you dine there. Highly recommended for lunch, dinner or a weekend away from home.

Found a package that didn't make the room that cheap except for the generous amount of credit that could be used for the restaurant. That said, we dined in the restaurant (watch for the days that it is open - closed 2 days a week) with the meal paid except for tax and wine. The 4-course prix fixe meal is... More

The welcome was warm, and service was relaxed, professional and thorough throughout the evening. It's December, so too dark to see the ocean in the evenings, but the lawn and the trees were aglow with little lights, and we were delighted to be visited by two little deer just outside our window. And the food - oh my goodness. The... More

A true gastronomic delight, carefully prepared and graciously served awaits the visitor at Sooke Harbour. Superb menu and views that allow the diner to see a sunset over Washington's beautiful Olympic Mountains make this trip very special. Bon appetite...enjoy the wines and the ambiance.

Wow, it was excellent. Nice welcome, good and consistent service. The wine menu is massive and a fun read; we found suitable selections for our taste and budget. The food was excellent - everything we had from the 4 course menu was superb including the presentation. The table bread and butter was delicious, too. Nice atmosphere, not stuffy or pretentious...

My family visited from our of province and due to my Mum's special day we chose a restaurant fitting for the evening. We arrived and found a restaurant with spectacular views and a warm staff. In the water we could see seals swimming, a couple of otters playing and then a young deer nibbling grass outside the window. Truly a... More

The location here is nice, although with fog was hard to appreciate the view. The dining room nicely laid out and you got the feeling you were in for a lovely meal. However, when we arrived the maitre'd made us wait standimg for ages and at first seems to ignore us altogether while he was setting a table. When he... More
