We went for dinner and an overnight in the Cielo
We absolutely enjoyed our time there!
Our dinner was incredible
Service was outstanding
Molly and Jack!!! You made our night
Thank you so much for everything you all do
My twin sister and I had the most enjoyable 80th birthday lunch!
Everything was perfect!
We took our time and savoured every mouthful.
We had the dining room all to ourselves, it was very special!
I tell everyone how amazing Alpina is, I get worried I’m going to jinx it! But every time I’ve come, I’ve always had an amazing meal, incredible service and the best views around! We are so lucky to have this gem on southern Vancouver Island. There is no other place I would rather go for a birthday, special occasion, or standard breakfast. The food is honestly the best. THANK YOU for always doing the best!
We were put into a poorly lit back section of the restaurant near stairs that volumes of unmasked patrons were using to go to a party downstairs. Our table did not have a candle or flowers such as the other tables around us and just gave an overwhelmingcafeteria feeling. Considering I had made the reservation specifically for a birthday dinner; all but the food was underwhelming
Thank you for taking the time to let us know we need to "Pull up our Boot Straps". Your review was particularly upsetting because It was your girlfriends' Birthday, an event we love hosting, and we did not hit the "Bullseye" for your special evening. Also because you chose to stay with us that evening, as our In-House Guests needs are at the top of our list at the Villa Eyrie. I shall try to contact you personally JohnT to discuss this matter.
I've got to say "Thank you so much" for, again, providing a wonderful evening to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary.
And I have to tell you that since we were both building our houses at the same time (1990), over the years you have improved, decorated and highlighted your home absolutely marvelously! I always look forward to seeing your latest improvements.
We have been to this restaurant a few times. The food is always delicious. The view on a nice day is amazing! Our visit last night was a bit lack luster in the service department. Our entree order wasn't taken for almost an hour even though our menus were removed from the table and we were finished our appetizers and second drinks. Our server did not check in on us much at all. Comparing to our last visit where the service was 5 star, above and beyond! It was a bit disappointing. Also, there were food crumbs on the window ledge beside our table. I expect a bit more for a $250 dinner.
We truly appreciate your feedback and comments when we do not match what the Villa Eyrie is all about. In particularly from on of our Returning Guests. First, thank you for your continued support and understanding during these trying times. Secondly, I take full responsibility for your Dining mishap. I shall try to contact you personally Karin to discuss this matter.
The location and view are spectacular no question. The ambiance was lacking. Cool, modern and sparse. We were seated along a hall with people constantly passing. Carpet was noticeably in need of vacuuming and it was at 11am. Food: My brunch of poached eggs, roast potatoes was adequate but nothing more than a good diner would prepare.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know we "Missed the Mark". We strive to deliver the Best Possible Dining Experience at all times. As you have mentioned, it is the "little things" that make or break a dining experience, so I can understand how the carpet would affect your overall dining experience. We shall endeavour to find the time during service to fix these inconsistencies. Again, thank you AnnF for bringing this to our attention
Everything was excellent from start to finish. Food, ambience and service were all top notch. Easily one of the best meals I have had in years.
Staff there was amazing, we enjoyed the view and the food so much ! They also made incredible cocktails! Special shut out to Jeff who also helped us for dinner and we loved his passion for work! Truly awesome experience!
Great views, delicious food. Can't wait to try spending a few nights.
The food was good but the wine is ridiculously expensive. I'd say it was good but not excellent. I'd recommend having a picnic nearby to enjoy the view.
We had a great night for my wife's birthday and the service was great.
We celebrated our anniversary and the server was so nice. The view was great and the food as great as we remembered.
This restaurant never disappoints! We’ve been there several times!
Took a little long to get what was ordered, though quality is worth the wait.
For this reason, serving either some amuse-bouches or bread+butter would help greatly. Small risk of eat more -> order less -> less revenue, but it would magnify the experience & help with the hunger pains for those who have waited.
Our waitress Molly was an absolute delight!
It was less than expected. I was looking for a fine dining experience but it was more like a 3 star restaurant. Waitress was polite and nice but dressed like a restaurant waitress not a fine dining restaurant. Menu was “ok” and the food was good, portions were good, everything in that area was fine. I didnt expect people in Jeans ordering a hamburger. For an Anniversary dinner it was not bery good.
Ambience was amazing. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Only one meal (of 7) was off. Soggy bun (saucy) burger. The rest were fantastic.
Outstanding afternoon as usual. I love the view and service was exceptional.
The food and service was awesome. We definitely will be going back.
Delicious food. Delicious View. Everything about it is just delicious. 10/10
What a wonderful dining experience! Delicious food, impeccable service, incredible view! Our first time here, but we definitely will be back. We can highly recommend!
So very great. Service was excellent and the food…super! We’ll be back.
Excellent service, great food, outstanding view. Will check out the spa next time!
welcoming ambiance and superb menu of Villa Eyrie was our choice for a resort with a visitor from Great Britain and Villa Eyrie Resort did not disappoint.
Not a single complaint. From the food (presentation, flavour, value) to the service and the views, spectacular is the only description to describe.
Excellent food and service! Very accommodating of vegan diets :)
Enjoyed the food, service and views. Restaurant manager is amazing. Thanks again for a great evening on our special day.
The view was spectacular however the food was unexpectedly subpar. Considering the price point, our family arrived very excited about this experience and left disappointed. Pasta was dry and seemed as though it may have been prepped and sitting too long. Mussels lacked any distinguishable flavour. We really wanted to love it, but likely won’t be back.
Special thanks to Jack for his effervescent personality and hosting. The entire team at Alpina really made our getaway 10th anniversary weekend fun, enjoyable and memorable.
As for the food? Of course we came back for more! Breakfast was a delightful lemon-ricotta pancakes, eggs florentine and a breakfast sausage on the side. Great for sharing and totally delicious.
Yes we will be back, in a heart beat.
This is one of our top 3 restaurants on the island. Love everything about it.
We came for our second meal, and the punch was terrific. It’s a smaller menu, but everything was excellent. The service and the views are incredible. It’s always a delight to enjoy a meal at Alpina.
Though the typical fall west cost weather prevented a hoped for view we were more than happy with the excellent service and great meals. This was a lighter dinner, bacon cheeseburger with fries and the BLT salad for my partner. Both were tasty and filling. Above all, the staff experiences was the best. Pleasant, professional and extremely helpful.
We are definitely looking forward to our dinner Saturday.
Nice restaurant with spectacular view.
We dined two consecutive nights. The first night the meals were surprisingly not as well prepared as anticipated. We were not asked about the quality of the meal by our server. So we left disappointed. The second night the Chef was on his game and the food was terrific. Apart from being seating next to the bathroom doors we enjoyed our dinner.
We went there while in town visiting Victoria. The menu and views are the reasons why we decided to book dinner there. Staff were great and service was excellent
Great food and fascinating view. The staff there are welcoming and friendly.
My mussels were perfection . The view was incredible. The service friendly and professional.
What a delightful evening of excellent food and ambience.
Isabella, our server was 10+.. very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient!
We were so impressed!
Our meals were delicious.. we have been many times and we’d highly recommend
It to anyone looking for a culinary evening to remember.
Spent the weekend at Eyrie and it was spectacular, restaurant, spa, room… 10/10
What you’d expect at the price
Celebration of our good friends 30th anniversary. Molly provided a great overall dining experience. Food was fantastic!
