My husband and I went for lunch. I had the halibut and chips, very tasty. My husband had the bison blue cheese burger with the filthy fries, they were excellent. Very nice setting over looking the inlet.
Service was very good as well. Our server Derrick was very pleasant. We will be back for sure

Utterly disgusting... do not trust any of the reviews of this restaurant. First off, it is a complete dump. My wife and I decided, hey, the views decent enough. Let’s give it a try... big mistake! I first ordered the chicken cordon bleu, only to find out 15 minutes later they had 86’ed it. I proceeded to order the spaghetti bolognese, my wife ordered the seafood soup, and my son also got the bolognese. Here we go, our spaghetti was sitting in a puddle of water, the meat looked very questionable at best. My wife’s soup looked decent enough to start, only to find out it had raw shrimp at the bottom, her tea that she ordered had chunks of food residue floating at the bottom and...oh ya, she’s 7 months pregnant! The waiter was unpleasant and looked high on something.

Please save yourself a possible trip to the hospital and avoid this dump at all cost.

Attended on Valentine's day 2020. The place was packed and only 2 servers working, plus two assistants who we anticipate were management as they were working only 10% as hard as the dedicated waitstaff. Service was amazing despite being under staffed. I ordered the "special" Valentine's 3-course meal, my husband ordered from the menu for half the price. Husband got an incredible burger and dirty fries, was too full for dessert. I got some lettuce with one strawberry for my appy, 3 (3!) pieces of ravioli as my main, and a couple small cream puffs for the pricetag of $40. Left hungry and irritated that this once great place has cut so many corners; hard to see it being a fine dining option in the future, it will likely just be our regular burger stop.

Dining is a wonderful experience especially if the sun is shining to expose the breath taking view of Saanich inlet.

Great view and really good service. The food is good but can be a bit slow coming out of the kitchen. We ordered burgers and it took 55 mins after ordering for the food to be served on a regular Wednesday evening. When this occurs it would be great if this place stepped it up a notch by providing some bread for the table. There's lots of good meat options to choose from but if you are vegetarian it's pretty much just the salads on the menu for you... I think this place might lose out on a lot of customers because of this (cause if you have even just one veggie-eater in a group of 2-4 people, that might mean they are going somewhere else all together). A veggie sandwich or pasta might make a big difference.

My family has been coming to the Malahat Chalet for a long time. We have always enjoyed the views , service and food, however this last visit was not to the Chalet's usual standard. The views, staff were as amazing as usual but the food was not up to the high standard I have become accustomed. I hope this is a "blip" as we have always felt this was our favorite place to visit.

I will come again and give it another try but was a little disappointed.

Hello: I had made the reservation thinking it was going to be very busy being Easter Monday. It wasn't. Only one table there when we got there and then later a few more came in. Our waitress was very nice. We had to wait for the others to get there and had to ask for a drink before. We had an appy BUT we all order our food at same time after having our appy. ,, complaint 45 minutes later and only two other tables who did order before us, but that said,,, 45 minutes to get our dinner for four people. Really,, a monster burger and 3 beef dinners,, 45 minutes for simple meals. TO LONG.

The food was very good and the portions were very generous. Our desert of creme brûlée cake was the biggest single piece of cake I have ever seen.

View was awesome! Service excellent, nice choice of items on the menu. I only knew about the FitFabulous menu from looking at the website ahead of time; perhaps both menus shoukd be offered by waiter/ waitress.
