The food was good but certainly not as different as I expected after hearing do many things. We have been to many fine dining restaurants over the years and expected much more originality and different fine dining dishes.

A garden full of interesting driftwood art melded into the garden itself.
It is a place to visit and enjoy the scenes.
Stop and have a coffee or a meal and remember to walk about the local streets.

We came upon this place quite by accident on a drive from Victoria.
We wandered in on a rainy Saturday afternoon and the staff was very pleasant. As their dining room wasn't opening for dinner for another hour, the staff opened up a couple of their unoccupied rooms for us to look around in and told us to wander around wherever we wanted - if a door isn't locked, go on in and look around.
They started a fire in the wood fireplace and set us up with a bottle of wine until dinner.
The four course meal was magnificent as is the setting.

This past Sunday a Victoria couple and ourselves from Sooke had an absolutely stunning lunch in the dinning room. A beautiful sunny day with a candle lite table complete with white linen waiting for us, infront of one of the best views in the Province. The waitresses were friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive and the dining room warm and very relaxing. The four of us shared two appetizers and then ordered three Duck Confit entrees and one of Rock Fish, the silence of pleasure was only punctuated with innumerable compliments. We all raved about the taste, the extrodinary artistic presentation, the spotless ambience and the generous portions. The wine list was exhaustive but we easily found an reasonably priced BC wine to all enjoy. Although they are only, to my knowledge open for Lunch on Sunday this event should not be missed by any Southern Vancouver Island food lover. Many Kudos to Chef Oliver Kienast and his great staff. Exceptional!!!
