“A snug little place but not cosy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food is always good and familiar. A lot of staff are quite young and just cutting their teeth in this industry, but sincere. The high ceiling gives a cavernous feel to what should be a cosy space

“Wow! Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

Last week friends had raved about how good their meals were at Mario's so we decided to go for dinner. We ordered two of the daily specials and we're very impressed! The split pea soup was one of the best I've ever had, and I've had a lot of pea soup. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection and my warm seafood salad on kale slaw was amazing! It was full of mussels, scallops, fish and was delicious! We had been told that the new owners had really improved the restaurant and I have to say that we loved our meals and wouldn't hesitate to go back. There are very few excellent restaurants in Tsawwassen but this place deserves five stars!

“Could be a real gem!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Visited with friends on a Friday evening. Found the ambiance lacking, and very noisy. Ordered a seafood salad over warmed kale, and specifically requested no mussels - found a small heap of them carefully arranged under the kale.
Several members of the party had wanted dessert, however, the bill arrived without an opportunity to order or even discuss anything else.
On the plus side - excellent staff, and a manager/owner (?) who made a point of checking on each table to see how things were going. Meals arrived promptly, and in no way were we rushed, yet, we were able to get in and out again in a reasonable amount of time. A varied selection of menu items, and I will make appoint of trying them again

“Mediocre at Best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

Food was cold and all stuck together. Waste of money. The last time I will go to this restaurant. It also was not cheap.
