“Great choice for a special occasion”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary, seated outside with the wonderful view over the Sechelt Inlet, watching the wildlife and seaplanes come and go. Staff gave just the right balance of attention and space. We had a cocktail, appetizer and main course each (the main course also came with a soup or salad). The food was pretty good for the price point, though not exceptional. The prosciutto wrapped scallops were delicious, though. We both had the mixed grill special for our main course and I've honestly never seen so much meat (lamb, steak, pork) on one plate...there was no way either of us could finish it or think about dessert. Wine selection was decent - small list, but all good wines. The main point is that it's one of the most romantic places to go for dinner on a sunny evening around these parts.

“Quality dining”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

The menu is based around locally available food where possible. It is short on vegetarian options, so call ahead in advance. Even without warning we DID get a nice pasta entree for the vegetarian in our party. I had a mixed seafood entree with salmon, scallops and prawns and each was perfectly cooked. Desserts were decadent. Wines are moderately priced. Cocktails are available as well.

“Delicious meal and desert”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

My husband and I were on the Sunshine Coast for 5 days to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We ate here one evening and the meal was so delicious we went back again two nights later. I thoroughly enjoyed the seafood special and my husband the meat (beef, pork and lamb) special. Our favorite desert - the chocolate ganache. mmmmmm, yummy. The service was also very good, friendly servers, and quick, yet not rushed service.

“Great Dinner ... with a view”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

I was recently on the Sunshine Coast for a vacation and the Blue Heron Inn was recommended as a nice place for an evening dinner. They did not disappoint.

I sat outside on the deck to enjoy the evening and an unobstructed view of the water.
Had the opportunity to speak with Gail, one of the owners who was very pleasant to chat with.
Enjoyed a nice glass of wine with the seafood trilogy dish (loved the two dish concept for serving) and blueberry tart for dessert.

Dinner was well prepared, plated and flavourful !!
Will be back on our next visit.

“Sumptuous Meal in a Spectacular Setting”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had a superb meal at the Blue Heron last Sunday. Our appetizers of scallops wrapped in prosciutto and steamed muscles were beautifully prepared and delicious. We had main courses of lamb and duck. We have never had either better prepared than at the Blue Heron. The crème caramel is the best I've ever had even in a three star restaurant in Paris and the blueberry tart was also tasty. The husband and wife team who own this restaurant deserve kudos. Manny is an award winning chef and Gail supervises the dinning room charm and grace.
The restaurant environment is pleasant and comfortable and the setting on the Sechelt Inlet is spectacular. It is a delight to watch the setting sun while enjoying a wonderful dinner.
