We celebrated a big birthday in the Bistro. It is a stunning building and the Bistro is both cozy and architecturally awesome. Our wait person (Ruby) was delightful and the food, well, it was magnificent.

Our recent visit was a couples getaway. What could be more perfect than staying at the premier destination hotel on Salt Spring Island ? Well, a lot. The property was in fact a beautiful place. Gardens everywhere, right on the water and beautiful weather. The food prepared was very good, although less than imaginative and moderately overpriced. The main issues... More

Went here for my birthday at the fine dining section and the Bistro the second night. First class all the way. Definitely on the pricey side, but the food, service and ambiance is well worth it. Very special place to spend a momentous event. Beautiful views of the harbour.

I would choose the dining room experience over the Bistro. Better view, old school service was excellent.

The parking lot is gravel and up some steps from the restaurant. I was unable to drop my wife at the front door as the gate allowing access was closed and I am not certain they open it or not. For the ladies this will pose a bit of a challenge depending on your footwear. Once inside the atmosphere is... More

I enjoyed the delectable flavours in my dinner and the wine list was great. The F and B manager, Nala was attentive and professional. As a single traveller, I was well looked after and made comfortable.

Excellent dinner and service. If you are physically challenged be sure to park in the lower parking lot as the upper lot has a long flight of steps that are not that user friendly.

It was a birthday party, a group of 9 people. Nice and quiet place, hidden in the forest. Great and tasty food, lovely placed on the plate - a real culinary show, and the taste is hard to forget. For food they deserve at least one Michelin Star. Great place, despite of the very high price!

Thank DeuxDenis
