It closes in the off-season in the winter, but excellent food and ambiance in the restaurant when open. Lovely view over Gowlland Harbour from the dining room. Cheerful and good service.

We enjoyed a wonderful family dinner and Gowlland Harbour resort. The service was immaculate and the food wonderful. The menu was innovative and the portions perfectly sized. The kids were also very well catered for.

We decided to try Gowlland's Sunday brunch. Even though we made a reservation, we had to wait for a table. When we got out on the deck, they were moving two small round tables together and putting little bunches next to them. There were two rectangular tables with nice chairs, and we asked if we could sit there. They said... More

I am so sorry to hear your meal was less than awesome! I am also sorry to hear there was confusion in regards to the seating. We do not take reservations for breakfast, so this was the first misunderstanding and I am so sorry. We have a beautiful patio and in the summer most of our guests like to dine... More

The seafood linguini is to die for...the service delightful...the scenery breath-taking. Gowlan Harbour Resort is a gorgeous oasis, well appointed, peaceful and relaxing.

My date and I were struck by how awful the food and place were, given the incredible location. Resting on its laurels? What laurels? We've been with visiting family members, been alone for sushi and micro-brew theme nights, atc. Multiple visits have confirmed: not worth the price tag, or the drive.

Our breakfast here was first rate. The staff was very pleasant first thing in the morning, and the view while we ate on the patio was beautiful.

Stayed at the resort and tried their breakfast and dinner menus. Loved them both! Breakfast had a generous amount which kept us full until dinner which was great!
