The service was very good. The view is excellent. However, the restaurant was out of haddock and many other things listed on the menu. From reading other reviews, this seems to be a recurring theme at this restaurant. Management needs to improve its ordering system. Still the food we did order was pretty good and the view makes up for... More

Lunch after hiking at Sooke Regional Park. Arrived 2pm (no lunch crowd) and server was all attentive and friendly (we engaged her in chat). Sat outside. View of small inlet was gorgeous. Wife & daughter said wonderful things about pulled pork sandwich with macaroni balls. Fish & chips can never be great (it is deep fried). Had the fish &... More

The setting is beautiful. In a bay with the kayakers and boat dock nearby. Enjoyed a light local beer with a salmon burger. Loved the pickled beets on top! Good for a no fuss stop that will likely please a crowd.

The waitress replied all they had available was diet as they were out. Next my daughter ordered halibut & chips from the menu & the waitress replied they were out! She then told... More

We stopped here on our way from Victoria to French beach for lunch and made the right decision. Both the food and the view were great and they also had a baby chair for our little one. We sat outside on the terrace and had a good view on the lake. I had the Aussie salmon burger which I can... More

We went to eat while staying in Sooke Bc and loved it. I had the mushroom encrusted fish and my husband had the ribs. Delicious food! The service was very good and the view was amazing. We loved it so much we went back the next night again and had the same thing.

If you want a really good burger or wrap and want to have a leisurely dinner then you will be very happy with this establishment. My wife and I visited while on vacation. We were staying in Sooke and wanted a nice simple dinner. The offerings included some vegetarian options which my wife prefers. The waiter was friendly and engaged... More

Our first day in canada we looked this restaurant up for our first meal in Canada, hoping it would be good. It was AMAZING. Our waitress, Chantel, was awesome and made our experience the perfect start to our trip. DEFINITELY a MUST!!

We stopped for a late lunch and enjoyed burgers, tuna taco and vegetarian noodle dish (something for everyone). Chantal was a great server and we had a great view of the bay from the glass windows.
