We've eaten at Haro's for years, and it's always held a special place for us as we had our first date there. Alas, the quality and flavour of meals has not held over time. On a recent dinner visit, farmed salmon was on the menu (we were told that the prices on fresh were too high to make it affordable)... More

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are serving, and have been for more than 7 months, wild sockeye salmon. We did try an organic farmed salmon for a very short period of time in 2016, but quickly moved back to wild in September of last year. We tried the organic farmed not for cost reasons, but rather because we... More

On a quick one night trip to Sidney we happened upon Haro's for dinner. Prawn hot pot, falafel burger, parmesan truffle frites. All superb and we can't wait to return! I can't recall our servers name but he was very personable and the view can't be beat.

We were between ferries so decided for a light meal at Haro's in the late afternoon. Arriving at 4:15 we were warmly greeted and seated at a lovely water side window table. We advised our server that we only had about an hour. Our drink order taken we decided on wings for me the hanger steak sandwich for her. While... More

We stopped in for appetizers on a Sunday evening and shared two appetizers. We had their starter-pizza and their calamari. The pizza was very nice, but we found the calamari to be tender but it had too much cayenne pepper on it. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. We did not have an entree here, and the...

We have been going to this restaurant over the past several years. The quality of food has gone from restaurant to quick bar food. The last time we went to have a meal was several days ago and we ended up feeling forced to walk out. Our server ignored us, refused to acknowledge our attempts to get her attention and... More

Ate here one evening recently after getting stranded at the airport. The menu was varied with choices for everyone. Food and service were both good. It can be a bit on the noisy side so maybe not suited for an intimate dinner. If you are staying at the hotel, and good choice for dinner.

Had a good salad here for lunch. Pleasant place, good service. Not remarkable, but good. Located in the Sidney Pier Hotel. Convenient.

I stayed at the Pier Hotel & Spa and ate at Haro's almost every night. The food was always excellent and the staff made the experience even better. If you are in Sidney well worth going.

We were looking for the pub when my partner met a couple and asked them which restaurant was better, the Pub or Haro's. Both said Haro's for the food. So, it was on the recommendation of two local residents that we went to Haro's. It is a modern, nicely decorated restaurant with very attentive service. We had a delicious dinner... More

Menu is well-suited for locals who frequent the place in winter: good selection plus items for sharing and choices for those who want smaller portions. Very good service and decent value for money. Pleasant low-key dinner entertainment.
