Upscale but casual. Wonderful ambience. Excellent service and superb meals. I had garlic buttered shrimp and my husband had halibut. Both were delicious and cooked to pertection! Our waiter was very good. Not hovering but always there at the right moment! Highly recommend!

Food was excellent and the service fit with it. Both meals were cooked to perfection, portions were just right. Desert was great as well. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

We ordered the steak and prawns special. No drinks, no appetizers, no dessert and it came to $92 with tax and moderate tip. $92 for two plates of food and water to drink is not what I would call "reasonably priced." We also had to...More

My husband ordered steak and it was good, but my bouillabaisse wasn’t good. No flavor at all. When all items on the dinner menu are pricy, you expect the food is great. Wrong. I must say the service was better than bouillabaisse. That’s the fact.

They have accommodated groups of 20 to 25 from The Parksville Newcomers Club on occasion. I am not sure if 35 would be too large a group. I tend to think not. They may ask you to pick your lunches ahead of time from the... More
