My husband and I went to The Latch last evening for our anniversary; for, me it was a fist visit, for my husband who had been many times, it was the first visit in many years. We will NOT return.

We were the only customers and we were there between 7:20pm and 8:30pm. We were greeted by a small child who was running about in the restaurant ( presumably the owner's ). The server came and SAT at our table to take our order...saying that he was tired.

My husband's minestrone soup was served with waiter's thumb in it! Both our mains were appalling bad and virtually inedible...mine, supposed to be veal scallopine, was positively swimming in fat and his cannelone looked as if it had been warmed in the microwave after being picked up at a deli!

For this, and an inexpensive bottle of wine marked up to three times its retail value, we paid $125! Unbelievable!

Too bad; apparently it used to be quite nice...not any more, that's for sure!

This was our second visit to this restaurant. the first was many years ago and we went back because of good memories. This time the food was OK but we would not go there again. The appetizers were quite good, but the main course, while acceptable was certainly not as good as we had expected. The owner, who did the serving, talked too much--even while we were trying to eat.

Not a million miles from our Holiday Home the Latch Restaurant is different,
Different in that this great restaurant used to be The Govenor's Summer Residence and the Govenor being the Main Man in British Columbia. This charming residence, set at the end of Harbour road in Sidney, offers diners a variety of sumptious meals in an elegant setting.Friendly staff add to the ambience and the whole experience is a memorable evening.

We have been to The Latch several times and each time we have had a great experience. The restaurant has a wonderful location in an historic house. The menu is extensive and the food is delicious. The caesar salad is made at the table - you don't often see that anymore - and is very good. We have tried several different main course options and they have all been well prepared and very tasty. The desserts - some of which are also prepared at the table - are excellent. The service is attentive and friendly. We highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning again and again.
