“Closed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Closed down for about a year. No idea if it will ever reopen. Thanks! This needs to be removed from the files.

“Not really a review; more of a question”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

So Ollivanders has been closed now for several months now, with a sign still on the door that reads 'closed indefinitely', the windows are NOT papered or covered, the menus are still on the tables...what is going on I ask? Will we ever be filled in or will the restaurant remain there as a tease to all of us mourning it's loss?!!

“On NO!!! They are closde!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

What a shame! Ollivanders makes the best Pizza within 100 miles! Seriously! REAL cheese, and fresh ingredients!

When we were on holidays Aug 2013, we were looking forward to getting a Pizza to go and having it on the beach while watching the glorious sunset that you get in Qualicum!

And on the door: "Effective Immediately we are closed indefinitely. We wish to thank....."

What a low down dirty shame! We saw lots of people at the beach with Domino's boxes. Sorry folks! Domino's cannot hold a candle to Ollivanders! We pray that they will reopen before our next visit, but we fear the worst - that they are closed and will never open again.

Thanks for many years of great Pizza, and a LOT of good memories. Whatever has befallen you, my God protect you all as you move forward.

“Closed down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

We were in the mood for pizza last night and decided to check out this place and the sign on the door said "closed down indefinitely. Too bad as we couldn't find any place else close by that was opened serving pizza.

“Great lunch on the deck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We were looking for somewhere for a late lunch and the owner of the shoe store next door recommended the Ollivanders. A good choice.

We sat on the deck and enjoyed the afternoon sun. Inside was looking sad and was too warm. The waitress made us welcome. We had the deep pan veggie pizza and our daughter had the pasta. All good - the pizza was perfect for a hot afternoon and the service was good, although the restaurant wasn't very busy.

Inside decor really needs a lift - I recommend the outside patio!
