“Superb food, excellent service”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Four of us went for a late lunch/early dinner and were very pleased with our first visit to Haro's. We sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed the gorgeous views. Our server was friendly, bright, articulate, and precise. Our meals were served very soon after we had ordered and all of us commented on how well-presented and delicious they were. Prices were reasonable. We would recommend Haro's and will return for dinner in the near future.

“A good find!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Surprisingly there are not many, if any, restaurants of this quality in Sidney! Food was great, beautiful surroundings and location. Mussels were amazing!!! The only cons were they do not allow you to bring your own wine and charge a corkage fee and the wine list was very expensive. Example a $20 bottle in the US cost $90CAD (same exchange rate currently) in the restaurant.

“Great Food/Great Service”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great food, great service and all at very reasonable prices. It's very rare that we rate a restaurant "excellent" but Haro's does everything so well. No wonder they are aways busy! Next time you are in Sidney, make a reservation and enjoy the friendly but efficient service, comfort food with a twist and an incredible view of the ocean. What more could you want?

“Good quality waterfront dining”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

For a higher end restaurant it is certainly adequate but nothing truly special. I'd stick to things like grilled fish, scallops were good the night we visited. My hubby had lamb and it was very tender. Some of the composed dishes are a bit fussy and saucing needs work. The staff are very attentive and wine list decent with a good selection of BC wines though not enough of them by the glass. Looking out over the water and pier is lovely.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Tonight I took my husband out for his 50th birthday dinner here and we had great service.
I had mentioned that it was his 50th birthday when I reserved a table and everyone who came in contact with our table wished him a happy birthday.

I requested a table - last minute reservation today also - by the window and in a quiet spot and they had one waiting for us. The restaurant was busy, but the service was great - our server was "Lisa K" and she was exceptional.

The food was excellent - I had the curried seafood dish and he had the stuffed chicken - we both said that we would order the same again. The dinner was not rushed at all - it was not quick by some people's standards, but we weren't in a hurry and were there to enjoy the ambiance.
It was fine considering how busy they were. Whenever we needed something, it was no wait.
We ordered a desert to share and unknowingly they gave it to him at no charge for his birthday.

We are local Sidney people and are always looking out in our area for places to take company and to go out for special celebrations, we will be returning here without a doubt.
