Went to Malia's restaurant last night. What a fantastic night. All appetizers and entrees were excellent! Service was exceptional. If you want to enjoy a great restaurant in BC hit Malias.

No matter what you order, you can not go wrong. Go early for your reservation and try a nice glass of wine while you wait. Do not pass-up the appetizers! Treat yourself to the whole four courses. The flourless chocolate cake is the best!

Went to celebrate my birthday. Food was delicious and the service was stellar. I must rave about the salad dressings. All made in house. Very fresh and flavorful. I had the Chicken Marsala and it was delightful. Can't wait to visit again.
