Had driven by a few times, but didn't know it was open, because it's not at street level, and so many places are permanently closed in Alert Bay. We saw it was open, and were pleasantly surprised at the lovely decorated, and clean, with an ocean view. Food was pretty good, although they were out of sweet potato fries :(.... More

This family run business ( Mom, daughter and son from what we could tell ) is impeccably run and organized with the warmest service and fantastic food! Their small town setting meant they were out of some menu items but they made it up by adding locally caught sockeye salmon (the sockeye burger is great!). Service was exceptional! The daughter...

My husband and i had a lovely evening at this restaurant. We had a great view over the bay with a beautyful sunset. Also the diner was very good and the waitress was very friendly.

On a Sunday night it may be the only game in town so may be they don't care ?? Service was awful food very poor. Not a good experience wished we had made out dinner at the hotel.

This has a beautiful setting overlong the alert bay waters and faces towards the beautiful sun down that cormorant island seems everyday. The food is decent. A bit weak for vegetarians. The service was a bit slow but warm and polite.

The food is good but the service seriously poor. In a village that relies upon the ferry for transport there is just no excuse. Also no-one is ever sure whether it's open or closed. It's only saving grace is the cooking. Even booking ahead won't save you.

The best meal option on the island with a lot of wonderful dishes! The staff and the owners are so friendly. Plus, the prices are reasonable. Best eatery in town!

We stopped here recently for dinner and for lunch. This is some of the best restaurant food we have had in years, and we've sampled lots. Great view. My only regret is that I did not get a chance to try the deep fried ice cream.

Thank Cathy M
