This is a good place to have lunch or dinner. I have eaten there four times over the past few years. I really like the salads and pasta.

10 of us had dinner there, we had some good local...Salt Spring wines..and tried many of the dishes amongst us. The halibut was excellent, the pasta was flavourful and the lamb was very good...done as it should be...rare. Service was excellent and the only reason I didn't go for an excellent rating is that it was really hot in the... More

Our family group of 10 adults enjoyed a terrific meal. Great seafood and pasta dishes. Small and intimate, nicest dining we have found on the island (we are staying at Hastings House).

We went here on the recommendation of some local friends. The food and restaurant are just a little more special/fancy than a fully relaxed restaurant. The food and wine were nice! This is a fairly intimate restaurant so definitely get a reservation.

we really didn't want to have dinner in a "Cafe" but had no other choice at the time and were surprised at the pleasant atmosphere, the lovely staff and the great food! We were lucky to get a table as they were very busy and can understand why .... Would definitely go again.

Friendly attentive servers. Delicious food - pesto pasta with prawns (exceptionally fresh pesto!) and dill alfredo pasta. We passed on dessert because the portions were filling. Views of ships in the bay were a nice bonus.

Very good food with a creative presentation, and very interesting flavours. Restaurant was full on a Monday evening with what appeared to be people who are knowledgeable restaurant gowers. Attentive service...... we will be back!

During our trip to Salt Spring Island we had dinner at this restaurant. Caprese salad, beef carpaccio and duck confit. Some lovely cocktails to start and a glass of wine during dinner. We had a great meal, service was excellent and bill was completely reasonable. Would definitely go back!!!
