We had lunch before going out on our fantastic Stubbs WHale Watching trip and everyone in the group of 8 was happy with their meal. When we returned to Telegraph Cove hours later, the entire area was without electricity, not what we wanted to discover, by any means!! We were very happy but also tired, and starving.

It is not the best food there but acceptable. Only a bit overpriced. The staff was unqualified and a bit rude by moments. And they also close a bit early. Kicking out tables with paying customers is not the way to do business.

This is the only cafe/restaurant in Telegraph Cove but it is very good. Good menu with a nice selection of sea food. The service was OK but if it gets busy they seem to struggle somewhat and it is best to book being the only place to eat in the evening. It's along the boardwalk and has very nice views... More

Great coffee and pancakes dockside for breakfast. So peaceful and relaxing in the cove. You can also pickup great, healthy sandwiches and wraps to go for hiking or kayaking!

It was a wet night and there weren't too many customers and the atmosphere was a bit ho-hum. Quite a lot of things were not available. The food was ok - I has fish and chips. Fish was great, chips less so. Portions were too big for my taste. Waitress was charming and efficient. I thought it was quite expensive... More

Next door, well same building as the pub, nice outdoor seating, same marina view but relaxing watching the boats come in and out. More seating then pub inside, nice booths, friendly service and same kitchen as the pub no doubt.

This restaurant on a special place is worth more than one visit. Great food, portions oversized, nice people. Try the salmon barbecue! To die for. Telegraph Cove is worth a visit. After a whalewatch-trip with Stubbs you will enjoy the menu.

Went to Killer Whale cafe for supper. Had BBQ sockeye salmon.. it was delicious. Service was good, portions were large, Went to the pub for lunch the next day after an outstanding whale watching tour and had a beer and a cheese/ bacon burger.. again great burger, good service. Would I recommend this? you bet!

A mixed bag: Location: Beautiful. Ambience: Very nice. Food: Okay, but nothing special. Service: Waitress was rather inattentive and distracted. Not bad and we're glad we went. But far less than it could be.

Food was average. Some portions were extremely small; the fish on my halibut burger was more like a nugget, however the Seafood St. Jacques was generous. The restaurant closes too early in the evening considering it is the main restaurant on site in a tourist only location.
