Buyer beware

We were VERY pleasantly surprised by both the comfort and the view that we were treated to during our stay.... The heron was a nice touch.... (LOL) We Were NOT happy with the fact that we were told that the sheets would be changed on a daily basis, if we left the card on the bed. We did what was... read more

I had an opportunity to experience Rockwaters' Waterfront restaurant recently and have to say the value and the food were both great. The chef did an amazing job, the flavours blended well and the company was truly fine!

Good service, but the food was disappointing. The two lamb chops were minuscule, maybe an inch and a half round each. The seasonal ravioli had large pieces of raw onion and was swimming in a flavourless sauce. The best part of the meal by far was the small side dish of fries with the mussels appetizer. The mussels, sadly, were... More

If you are looking for some quality couple quiet time, this is the ideal spot. The cabins are cosy and comfortable with the sound of waves lulling you to sleep. My husband and I stayed in a cabin. There are also "yurt" type accommodations on the rocky ledges overlooking the water with free standing clawfoot bathtubs for a really private... More

Family of 4. Enjoyed the restaurant. We ate pretty much everything on the menu as we were there for 4 days. Some of the food was a bit tasteless, but overall it was decent food. Biggest criticism is that the menu was a bit "heavy" - not a ton on the light/healthy side. Yes there were salads, but it would... More

Tuesday evening, our meal, with no appetizer took 50 minutes to get to our table. At $38.00, the halibut was so dry that I had to take a sip of water to wash down every bites. We also had the lamb and was not impressed. Lack of flavours! Will not return!

Great setting and tasty options. We tried a variety of entrees and loved them all. A visit to the table by the chef was a highlight. Would love to go back at sunset.
