My group ate at the restaurant twice during our stay on Quada Island. On both occasions the food and service were outstanding. Most notably the side salad offered with some entrees was a delight, not just iceberg lettuce and a few carrot curls but a...More

This was our first time to the restaurant, as a group of us were on Quadra Island for the weekend. I would recommend that you eat in the restaurant and not in the pub, as the pub seemed really 'grungy'.More

Hi I wonder if there has been a Kitchen staff change. I gave you guys a second chance and you bombed!! i ordered a steak and it came rare even though i had wanted it well. Meat preparation is a simple ( easy to do right) yet serious thing to bomb!! Did you lose your chef or quality control person?
