The location is great, with wonderful views. Parking is down the road though. It's a single lane, and you drive right by the cafe to get to the parking. It's about 100 paces, give or take, to get back to the cafe. If we had...More

Partner loved his salmon and I loved the canon oysters. Husband also enjoyed dark beer selection. The view was beautiful and it was 5 mins from The Lighthouse B & B. Very convenient, too.

Food was good, as the title says it is not traditional anything Bayou or Cajun- food was good just the same. Nice setting on the dock overlooking the marina.

Great setting on the water. Able to eat in or outside and great photo opportunities at sunset. Food was very good but be hungry. Staff attentive and friendly. A great dining experience.

The cuisine is seen as exotic and maybe a bit overrated. However, if you have to have it, this place is fine. No doubt, the location is good once you find it. Nice pier location giving a fine view of the Malahat. Jambalaya is quite...More
