On our visit to Sooke, BC in early May 2013, we stayed at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort. Our experience at the hotel was fantastic -- mostly made excellent by our visits to The Mix. What truly made our dining experience stand out was the staff. Friendly, vivacious, and genuine... we were treated like gold, and it seemed to be a running theme! My observations of interactions between staff, management, and other guests was very much the same. We were truly pleasantly surprised, and would gladly visit The Mix in Sooke again! Thanks for taking such great care of us.

A great place to relax before or after a days fishing or exploring some trails... Ric's rocks with consistently good food, great veranda, and laid-back yet professional (world class) friendly service.

Liked the menu - great for many different appetites from small tapas to regular mains and pasta dishes. The service was very good. Loved the decor of the room and the colour scheme.

Delicious food, friendly service, and good sized portions of the food we selected for dinner all add up to the fact that we would definitely recommend this spot. And we will be back again!

We had dinner here while passing through Sooke in May 2013, and it was absolutely fantastic. The bartender, Murdock, was spot-on with his beer recommendations (local pours), and incredibly friendly. Despite only coming in for drinks, his hospitality persuaded us to stay for dinner, and we're glad we did. We had fresh salmon, scallop risotto, and kobe meatballs, all of which were amazing. The risotto was perfectly cooked, and all of the seafood was fresh and delicious. As we ate dinner, a local musician named Jean Bedard set up shop in the corner and played songs by James Taylor, Van Morrison, and the like. It was the perfect accompaniment, and he even took a few requests, like he'd known them forever. He sat with us and drank a beer after dinner, and was asked by The Mix to come back again.

After dinner, we sat on the dock behind The Mix, had a few beers, and listened to music while the sea lions entertained on the dock next to us. Definitely go to The Mix.
