We stayed in Ainsworth and took the ferry to Kootenay Bay for dinner. This was a fantastic experience. We both had excellent pasta dishes. We were surprised that they had live entertainment which was great as well. Ask to sit on the outdoor patio (beautiful)...More

There are not a lot of restaurants in the area but this one was recommended to us. The space itself is reminiscent of a high-school gymnasium and not very appealing. The food was average. I ordered a tomato and bocconcini salad - at this time...More

Enjoyed a quiet (we were one of two couples that evening) late dinner. Excellent service, food freshly prepared and delicious. Would return.

In a nutshell - my wiener schnitzel was burnt and as I was a guest with several people I did not know well, I kept quiet and said nothing. Disappointing.

It's unfortunate that you wouldn't let me address your concerns at the time. Instead you chose to quietly finish your plate of pork schnitzel and then complain about it in public. That's what's disappointing to me.

The wood stove was going the sun was shining in and the food was amazing at this little spot at the ferry terminal.

Stayed and the motel and had dinner here. Food is tasty and filling - just like Nona would make. Sitting outdoors was relaxing and fun. Owners are super friendly people!

Charming decor, delicious food and wonderful service. We had the insalata caprese and a pollo wood fired oven pizza. The salad was incredible and fresh with a wonderful dressing. Not often can you say this about a salad. The chicken pizza was absolutely delicious. Gisela...More

We had a large group and the food was excellent. The wood oven pizza is fantastic. The ice cream was out of this world. Made with local berries fresh picked that day it was like an explosion of flavour with each bite.
