Off-Boat Breakfast Break

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... read more

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.

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

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.

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.
