“Location & View Wonderful”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

You can't beat this restaurant for its scenic view over the bay. The food was good, not great, but the service was very slow. Not sure we'd visit again, except maybe for coffee - just to enjoy the view.

“Enjoyable, Easy-going, and Worthwhile”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

My family ate their on our second night on Orcas. It runs about $20 for an entree and my portion of fish was generous. The preparation was good and surprisingly involved lots of ingredients and flavors, including a curried cous cous on top of the salmon, which was cooked very well. The kids has generous portions to their menu items, even though they came from a kids menu. I'd recommend it for a good sit-down meal.

Our server was friendly and kept up with us nicely during the dinner.

“Cute and delicious”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Staff was very kind and personable. We had the manilla clams and ever since I have been thinking about them. They were that good! We saw someone with a hamburger and it looked like they do those great too!

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

On Orcas Island remember to get to dinner early since the kitchens in most of the dinner restaurants close early. West Sound Cafe has a great menu and the kitchen allowed me to double the portion of an appetizer to a dinner portion - and boy what a dinner! Peri Peri Shrimp was so good I want to 'peri-peri' everything now. And there was plenty of bread to soak up the remaining sauce!

Great service, a good strong selection of Northwest Wines and the kitchen did not close until 9:00 pm. I was there alone and all of the tables were full but eating at the bar was the right move. Great service and warm ambience - don't hesitate to visit!

“Super Dinner”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is not a fancy place, perfect for a family vacation dinner and gourmet food. Deelicious.! Their fries were wonderful, the salmon done to perfection and the carnita tacos were great!!!
