Beautiful fine dining we were looked after very well and had a lovely meal, located at the top of the bay in a quaint English style country house. Very nice, also has a bistro dining room if you don't want to go to the expense of fine dining.

While we expected to enjoy the Harvest to Table dinner at Hastings House recently, we weren't necessarily expecting it to be the best meal we'd had in years. But it was. We were started with caviar on quail eggs, followed by autumnal squash and pumpkin bisque, and then a wild mushroom terrine. All of these were lovely but didn't fill... More

The lamb and the halibut were incredible!!! The views of the bay are very private and unique. We attended a wedding party but would definitely recommend the menu for two or for a group.

I generally don't like restaurants where the garnish is larger than the food. However, i would be remiss in not saying that the food was quite good; the garnishes were edible; and the service was excellent. They had custom printed menus on the table when we arrived with our names on them and a 3-course meal planned out. You selected... More

The location of this resort is stunning. My massage was excellent. Having a drink before dinner was lovely. The wait staff was very attentive and nice. Dinner at the Bistro was just average. The food was not anything special and overpriced. We were talked into a wine that we very much wanted to try..... Only to be told they were... More

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.

Recently we had the dining pleasure of a first class and very tasty dining experience. The attention to detail, food prep and atmosphere proved a dining experience. Professional staff that clearly enjoyed their craft was great to see. The dining is nothing short of excellent. Be prepared to pay a premium but it is a culinary adventure so live a... More

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.

Thank smyzzz
