“Not a good choice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

My boyfriend and I went in to have a nice coffee, then decided to reach into an appetizer. We both really enjoy calamari, and thought what better of a choice than seafood while eating on their spectacular patio by the ocean! Didn't have a good experience though...

The coffee was not good, burnt and just not tasty, not to mention it cost 3.50 a cup. The calamari was the worst calamari we ever had. It was almost not edible...it was definitely from frozen and was way overcooked, and hard to chew. And, we paid 12 for it and there were only a few pieces over a full plate of lettuce. It was basically a salad with calamari as a garnish. Super unimpressed as the restaurant is gorgeous and the staff are very nice.

Mabye just an off day for the chef?

“Uniquely Wonderful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Our first visit to The Mix by RIc's in the Best Western Prestige Resort in Sooke was delightful and memorable! We were seated in a windowside booth overlooking the Harbour on a beautiful Spring evening, and reviewed the exensive course and drink options. It was our good fortune to be welcomed and served by Valerie, who offered suggestions, and addressed our questions.

Our meals were attractively presented, and delicious. As our meal ended, we had the pleasure of a wonderful conversation with delightful Valerie -- about the relatively new resort, especially the impressive food services, in whose planning and operations she has been in a leadership role. Being with her was a highlight of our evening.

We certainly plan to return again to return, and to tell friends about this very special place

“It's OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Food and service were fine but not amazing, prices were on the high side. Nice view. Would have given this a lower rating in a city but there are not a lot of dining options in Sooke.

“Great food with a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

I had the Chefs creation Benedict and it was excellent! It was served by a very friendly staff person who was knowledgable with the menu. The meal came out in good time. Coffee was always topped up. Great breakfast! Love those Benedict's ! Will definitely have breakfast there again. Last but not least.. The view is beautiful .

“Puzzled”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We arrived at 8:30 in the morning and a waitress looked at us from the other side of the restaurant and said "will be with you in a few minutes" but the place was virtually empty. I counted 5 seated tables and a couple of uncleared tables. About 5 to 10 minutes later she came over and said "just to let you know that it's going to be about 20-25 minutes for your order to be taken" to which I replied "why is that" and she looked at me like I had three heads and responded "because we have other tables who have already put their order in". We said we would come back another day and she apologized and said that we could make a reservation for breakfast - really? In Sooke? At The Mix by Ric's? Hence the title.
