I stopped here with a friend for a drink and a snack on a hot summer's day. We sat outside on the patio overlooking the greens, with the sea and mountains in the distance. Spectacular location. We had the Saganaki appetizer and a glass of beer each. The saganaki came with pitas, arriving on a grill plate spitting hot. It... More

Our family are deeply grateful to Oura and Kalli for arranging a beautiful "tea" to accompany a "Celebration of life" gathering, in honour of our loved one. It was exceptionally well presented in the restaurant, and pleasing for all in attendance. The setting, the food, the atmosphere - all ideal. Thank you so much for a very memorable occasion.

Lots of golfers around and a great setting overlooking the Strait. My pasta was tasty but not hot and had to be sent back to be heated up. The batter on my wife's fish was not cooked and was doughy and uneatable and the chips were over salted. Overall it was not a memorable dining experience. Even though the service... More

The view from the window tables are worth going for. The staff are very personable, they offer good pizzas, great sandwiches and nice combos. It can get busy at times but it is a local spot very popular. They offer take out and delivery.

Took a visiting family member here for the wonderful pizza we used to get here but we're very disappointed to be served an undercooked, barely cheesed excuse for a pizza. The waitress was very good, no complaint there, the view still exceptional but the food was terrible. They tried cooking it some more but it couldn't be resuscitated and we... More

On the drive home from Tofino, I was very hungry from some simple delicious food. I was ready to settle for fast food, after the at times tough drive from Tofino. After not being able to find a delivery pizza place on the road, we stumbled across this gem near our hotel (Crown Mansion). The setting is stunning with unobstructed... More

I had lunch here with a group of 12 women last week and found the service to be outstanding. The menu was varied and I did not hear any complaints at the table about the food. I had a pasta salad with freshly cooked prawns and enjoyed it very much. There was a lovely view of the ocean from our... More

I said I would give this restaurant another chance, and I'm glad I did. The service this time was excellent. We were acknowledged promptly and the service was friendly and efficient. We had lamb and ribs. Both meals were delicious. One thing we both noted however, is that there were no olives in the Greek salad. Really?? Dessert was a... More

Having spent another glorious sunny morning in Qualicum Beach/Parksville on the annual garden tour we needed a quick lunch before continuing on. We had been to Thallassa's in the past and because it is situated on a golf course we always thought of it as a quick bite place. But it is more then that. We enjoyed a lovely lunch... More

The "vegetarian" meal was a little strange. The spanakopita was very good and appetizer Greek salad just fine but why add potatoes and rice to the spanakopita with tsatziki and pita? Our server was good but friends with whom we had dinner mentioned that they often got a server who seemed to find working an inconvenience. Not really fair for... More
