We have eaten several meals at the C restaurant. Food is always fresh, well prepared, delicious. The wait staff is excellent, knowledgeable. We have tended to eat lighter fare or enjoy a drink on the outdoor patio. The main restaurant has big glass windows looking out onto the water.

We ordered the triple scoop ice-cream from the restaurant, and it was not bad. The flavors, were clean and fresh.

We had breakfast a few times and lunch twice at C restaurant. The menu and quality of food were fantastic. It is a lovely setting and the staff is very attentive and helpful. The views are spectacular. Great bar and they are happy to customise drinks. Good wine list. Would recommend.

Farm fresh, local produce. Excellent food and service, a bit pricey, but worth the splurge. One of the best salads, and best desserts I've eaten.

Unusually high quality atmosphere for a hotel restaurant. We dined overlooking the Bay: Big windows, elegant decor, professional staff. My husband said the oysters were some of the best he ever ate. He also had calamari and ceviche. Loved them all! I had the grilled vegetable sandwich. It did not disappoint.

I had a few breakfasts and lunches here while attending a retreat. Nice variety of food, great service and location. Clam chowder was excellent, eggs benedict very good. The sandwiches looked great. Calamari was good too.
