“Lovely setting”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

View over the beach is unbeatable, try to get table so can see the sun set. Im a vegan and they were most helpful in catering for my diet, and my husband had some great fish. The setting of the restaurant of course makes it.

“Great ocean view”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Very warm and inviting while being open to great views of the incoming surf. A comfortable place to have a meal or just watch the surfers.

“Excellent Food & Service”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Breakfast, lunch and dinner for 3 days here. Oh my! Breakfast buffet excellent with the usual continental staples plus ham and turkey slices, homemade scones, croissants, fruit compote and more. Lunch equally as good. Dinner was amazing. No need to drive anywhere just try the varied and numerous entrees and lounge menu. We cancelled dinner reservations elsewhere due to the fine quality of the food and service here. Wonderful sunset views from the lounge and restaurant seating (which is adjacent). We preferred the comfy chairs / sofa seating for our casual yet gourmet dinners. Lodge casual attire is fine here.

Some highlights for us were: hummus, crab cake, burger, halibut, salmon, vegetarian pizza and the best of the best were the incredible vegetarian entrees. None of us are vegetarians but these dishes were simply amazing.

Warm hospitality with gracious and helpful service. Great bartender. Wine list was very good. Desserts were over the top delicious. We loved staying in and enjoying the lovely ambiance and views with our meals.

“Great meal, even better view”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Relaxing, comfortable ambiance with a spectacular view of the surf. We enjoyed a burger, a veggie gluten free pizza and Caesar salad with prawns. Everything was quite good! Nice BC wine selection as well. Dessert was a "Humbleberry Pie" which was probably the highlight of the meal. The service was slow and spotty, but each waiter and Alan the manager apologized. They had some servers out sick. Alan gave us 15% off our tab. In all honesty, we didn't mind relaxing and enjoying the view a bit longer while waiting on the servers. We're on vacation. Who wants to rush!?
