We stayed at the hotel and had dinner in this restaurant; it was an enjoyable meal and our server was helpful and attentive. If you get a table up near the windows at the front, the view outside is good [weather permitting!]. Good value food and would recommend to anyone visiting Prince Rupert.

The Crest Hotel has the best food and view you could ever ask for. It's by far my most favourite place to enjoy a meal. The view from the dining room is spectacular! It's situated on a cliff overlooking the harbour, where eagles soar and you can watch the weather change by the minute. The food is always delicious!

The restaurant overlooks the harbour, so if the sun is shining the sunset is spectacular. We had the Halibut Cheeks Provinciale. Presentations and taste were excellent.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Both meals were delicious, just the right temperature, served by helpful and attentive staff. The restaurant itself is very well appointed and every table has a spectacular view overlooking the water and the hills. What a wonderful experience.

On an apparently rare sunny day, we had dinner on the outdoor patio in the evening sun (admittedly filtered by some incoming clouds). Service was good, including the kitchen splitting in two a rather large and very tasty dish of seafood spaghetti (with lobster, crab, prawns et al). Fish and chips as usual for one of us, good but not... More

If you look at my history of reviews, I rarely ever take the time to write a bad review.. I'd rather not review at all. I had a really bad experience at this restaurant. My father and I went while he was here visiting me from NY. We fully expected the price tags and were really looking forward to the... More

The Waterfront restaurant at the Crest, formerly the Charles room, has been tastefully updated but still provides some of the freshest and best northwest coast salmon and halibut available in Northern BC. Sophisticated service and preparation make this a great spot for a romantic dinner overlooking Prince Rupert harbour.

We went there for lunch before departing for airport . I told the waitress that we were in rush. She said she'd make it happened. The food showed up 10 minutes later, halibut fish and chips! Very tasty, no complaint! The restaurant had great Harbour view and really great for business and romantic occasion.

Thank Leona Z
