“Very very good”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

we usually stop in at this hotel's coffee shop/deli (which is also very good with wonderful bread) but this day we wanted soemthing just a bit more. The bottomless soup was absolutely delicious, Could have bottled in and sold it by the litre. The service (by a woman who said she was new that day) was great. Friendly and pleasant. She was a very nice young woman who ushed to get the answers to our questions. The view is lovely through the all glass walls. The value is excellent. It is a fine dining place, but the prices are fair for the quality and the atmosphere is warm and casual - not at all stuffy. We will certainly be back.

“Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Because we were spending only a few hours in town awaiting a flight out the next morning and did not wish to travel the streets of Sidney searching for a restaurant, we decided to try Haro's as it was in the Sidney Pier Hotel where we were staying that night.
We received excellent service. The waitress was only somewhat helpful in assisting us with our food selections, but she was attentive nonetheless.
My wife selected the seafood curry dish, which she declared to be extremely rich in flavour.
I had the fish and chips. It was a well cooked piece of cod with a healthy serving of overly crisp fried potatoes.
I only wish that there had been salt and pepper and vinegar on the table to help with the flavoring.

“Very tasty & reasonable”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We continually find Haro's to serve delicious food at a very reasonable price. They have just recently completed a make-over adding some new booths, new lighting and new art. The food is still great! The bread was a small warm loaf served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the side. I enjoyed the BC Salmon cooked to perfection (not overdone) with cabbage, leeks and roasted potatoes in a tasty sauce. My partner had one of their fantastic pizzas - always loaded with goodies on a thin crust. Complementing the food, we had a glass of the house red wine, Hester Creek cab. This BC wine is a good big red. Our meal finished with flourless chocolate cake, blackberry sauce and hazelnut mousse. Our server was most attentive to all our requests in a friendly welcoming manner. All aspects of our meal were exceptional!

“A dining experience at Haro's”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

The service is top-notch, the ocean view breath-taking and the seafood cioppino a savory meal. The service was so excellent - not a single detailed missed.

“Wonderful, relaxed dinner experience”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We were celebrating my aunt's 89th birthday which just happened to be during the Dining Out promotion. We all had the salmon which was perfectly cooked. Two garden greens and one roasted yam soup to start...all delicious and we ended the meal with a decadent flourless chocolate torte that was amazing. A glass of wine or two, a view that is unmatched and attentive but unobtrusive service made this a memorable dining experience. I wish we'd been there for the live music, the taped stuff was repetitious sounding and a bit annoying. However, we will definitely add this to our list of regular dining out places.
