Ruby Lake Restaurant

This is an Italian restaurant with a good menu and good food at reasonable prices. The service is always friendly and the ambiance inside and outside is great.

We have been to this restaurant several times and I'm still waiting for that a-ha experience other reviewers seem to have. The food is missing something - arriving either over or under seasoned. It is also incredibly over-priced as though the owners are capitalizing on one time only visitors who are driving through and do not need to be impressed... More

This place claims to be the best italian you'll ever eat & they claim to be Canada's Culinary Team...in actuality it was completely the opposite. It is a resort in the middle of nowhere attempting to facade they are a high class resort! The foods was sub par - bland, over cooked - the service was completely atrocious! To top... More

If you get a chance to try this restaurant please do. The food and service are excellent. We have been dinning there for the last few years when visiting the ruby lake resort and were never disapointed. We highly recommend sitting on the patio.

I would agree with other reviewers here. We stumbled upon this by chance while we were in the area and hungry. We sat outside on the deck and it was beautiful - a very peaceful ambiance, music playing in the background, chickens clucking around, delightful wooden tables and chairs. The food was pretty good, but some of it seemed quite... More

We stopped here with no expectations, just needed dinner while on the road. The restaurant itself is beautiful in a rustic way, with a large covered deck with a view of the lake and the beavers. Happy! Service however was slow, but I think our server was new. We had wine, but it took a long time. Then we tried... More

Strutting crowing roosters, a backdrop of a woodland marsh with rare painted turtles, a resident beaver snacking on branches, wood ducks, hummingbirds, eagles and turkey vultures make this an experience beyond the fabulous meals Chef Aldo prepares. The seafood selection is local and freshly caught... for us this is the best BC has to offer. I end the perfect dining... More

Location and scenery is beautiful. Service was great, but food was average. We ordered two pasta dishes which were over priced.
