My husband and I were a little leery about going to the Sooke Harbour House because of some of the mixed reviews but we were glad we went. It really was great. The food was so beautiful you almost didn't want to eat it. The flavours were fantastic. The service was really good - attentive without being overly so. I was torn between the salad and the soup for an appy and selected the soup. Wonderful. For dinner, we both had the halibut which was prepared to perfection. I don't really like dessert so was pleased that I was able to swap out for the salad so I got exactly what I wanted. We were seated at the window and had a gorgeous view of the harbour. All in all, it was a great experience. We would definitely go back.
