Lovely food and funky atmosphere

Beautiful spot in the summer - outdoor patio with an eclectic mix of tapas. We always find the food to be delicious and homemade. The desserts are amazing. The service is a bit relaxed, but that's the atmosphere around the Kootenays. Right on the main strip of Crawford Bay so you can browse the... read more

What a wonderful gem of a spot in Crawford Bay! The food and service were fantastic, a nice relaxed "pace" to the evening. Try the Poached Pear in spiced wine with pistachio and proscuitto. Absolutely amazing. We also tried the calamari, tandoori chicken and Stilton Beef, all were incredible. If you are looking for a quick meal, you're in the... More

Our group of 14 were again treated to the flavor delights of the Black Salt Restaurant. Golfing at Kokanee Springs and staying at the Wedgwood Manner is also part of our annual golf trip to this beautiful location amongst the Cedars. We all look forward to our annual dinner at the Black Salt. This year was even better than the... More

Great coffee shop. And the food was excellent. They had great selection. And it is right by a potter and jewelry store. Had nice desserts too.

I didn't have to look at the "Poor" ratings to know what the complaint was. This restaurant operates on "mountain time". That is a metaphor for "what's your rush?". I am not sure if they are talking or reading the paper or whatever.... but I prefer to think that they are busy creating culinary works of art! The food is... More

This is the best place to eat in Crawford Bay. Succulent food, beautiful setting with an outside patio surrounded by mountains and beautiful plants, parasols. Good wine and great hosts.

You have to look into a ruby. They have little of a diamond's superficial glitter. The premises lie somewhere between trashy and depressing. The service is clever, slow, frustrating, personal and never dull. The chef is accomplished, sophisticated and rustic. The food, styled as tapas, is uniformly delicious, some of it dangerously addictive. Potato croquettes??? How would that work? Well,... More
