Loved the Breakfast

We had Breakfast twice and appetizers and wine for a light supper. Every thing was delicious. The setting was beautiful of course and the staff was very pleasant. The service was a little slow one morning but within a short period of time additional staff provided assistance.

This restaurant/hotel has had such a hard time offering consistent service over the years. It is in the most beautiful setting, the restaurant offering one of if not the best views in the area. I have visited the restaurant 3 times in the last year and dispite hearing terrible reviews in the past had a lovely experience. Santa's breakfast buffet... More

The Ocean Terrace restaurant in the Oceanfront Suites has a beautiful setting overlooking the Bay. There are sailing and fishing boats in the foreground and during the morning we dined, there was a beautiful rainbow arching across the misty clouds and sky in front of us. We arrived for brunch and chose the Classic bacon and eggs, and our friends,... More

My husband and I were forced to spend 4 nights at a small working marina at Cowichan Bay while our sailboat's engine was getting worked on. Our spirits picked up when we enjoyed the first of three breakfasts at the hotel's restaurant. Although we were not guests of the hotel, and dressed like sailors, we were treated like royalty. The...

We went in for appetizers, but after reading the new menu went for two mains. Both the Chicken Lombardi and the Halibut offering were excellent meals! We'll be back soon. A terrific chef and sound, professional service.

Funny to read so many positive reviews... Maybe it was because we were there for breakfast on a Monday? Rubbery scrambled eggs, small ramkin of Costco fruit salad, 2 peices of toast, one slice of cheese: 8.75 (+tx,tip). Coffee is 2.50 extra. Husband had 2 egg omelette, with same rankin of fruit also for 8.75. Toast was extra! I don't... More

The hotel is older, but well kept. The servers were very friendly and accommodating. We had a great seafood appy, dinner and sweet desert. I... More

We had breakfast here three mornings. Dinners are available here only on the weekend during the off season. A very reasonably priced menu for well presented and tasty breakfast choices. Very good service, even when a tour group somewhat overwhelmed the dining room. We recognized later that the hotel manager had stepped in to deliver food to the tables. We... More

I can only comment on breakfast at this restaurant - but it was excellent. The dinner menu looks very good as well, and would be worth the try. Views are fabulous & staff VERY friendly & professional.
