My first visit rk Cuckoos in Coombs was a lovely luncheon date with my daughter. We would suggest you make reservations just to avoid any potential lineups (of which this April Saturday was long. We did the reservation and jumped the que because of it. Italian style so pasta, fresh seafood, pizza and salads. Greeted happily by our host and... More

Very nice setting with delicious food. We ordered the spicy italian pizza coupled with the soup of the day. Tiramisu and cuppacino are a nice end to the meal.

This was my 3rd visit and I am still not impressed with the food. Both of our meals lacked flavour, despite the fresh ground pepper and Parmesan. We also had a Caesar cocktail, it was very spicy but no other decernable flavour and it was not chilled...tried adding ice but was still not worth drinking. When I saw the chef... More

My wife has numerous food allergies and these people went out of their way to accommodate the meal, and it was spectacular. We travel alot and must say this has been one of our best experiences

Had lunch with a group of ladies, 20 to be exact. The restaurant is a beautiful location. Our waiter was great the food was very good, taking into account we were a large group, the chef did a phenomenal job.

Lots of pasta, lots of garlic. Enjoyable atmosphere with a very European ambiance. There is a nice outdoor eating area in the summer as well

I am very partial to Cuckoos restaurant. I quite often take myself there for a treat even when I have no one to go with. Yesterday I had a friend visiting from Nova Scotia and we went for lunch and a great quiet chance to catch up on all the news since last time she was on Vancouver Island. Kathy... More

I have eaten here many times and always come back for the curried mussels... they are delicious! You could eat the sauce with a spoon but they give you plenty of bread to sop it up. On a hot sunny day, sit outside in the patio with a pitcher of sangria! The food is delicious and the staff are always... More

I booked this amazing gem for our staff retreat last October. I made sure I arranged food to be ordered ahead of time. We went with the "Paesano" Deal and were not disappointed! The quantity was more than enough! I believe there were 25 of us and the food could have easily fed another 25. We ordered the scallops and... More
