Villa Eyrie is in a beautiful location with an unbeatable view.

Sunday brunch was quite good. There is an emphasis in quality over quantity. There were some small things missing such as jam or butter for the fresh baked goods. Also, some stations did not have proper serving utensils, making it very difficult to take certain foods.

The service was very poor. There were 2 main servers in the dining area. One was doing a good job, but she was overworked because the second server did not seem to be doing anything. We asked for coffee and she seemed shocked that we'd ask. She asked if we wanted cream, but then she arrived with cream and no sugar. She refused to make eye contact with us again. We ended up pouring maple syrup into our coffee because it was near the pancake station.

Several times the host and server walked by our table that had dirty dishes stacked on it (from the buffet brunc
h). Seeing as this restaurant is being marketed as higher end, that was unacceptable.

When we were ready to leave/pay, we waited 15 min to receive the bill (well to get anyone's attention) and then another 20 minutes just to pay.

We might return here because of the good and view but the service was surprisingly bad for a restaurant of this calibre.

Excellent seafood chowder and the polenta fries were very tasty. Service was attentive but not invasive. Very pleasant experience.

Absolutely amazing food and service! A wonderful atmosphere. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner both days of our stay at the villa and we enjoyed every one of them. Breakfast/Brunch was our favourite

I was disappointed in the food, it was just ok. And such a limited menu. I had ordered a cake for my friends retirement and was disappointed it didn’t say Happy Retirement” on it and that there was hardly any fruit on it as well. It was iced with simple whip cream, not elegant at all. For the cost it was a huge disappointment. The view and restaurant is amazing but that’s about all it had going for it.

Excellent value for gourmet food with a million dollar view. You will feel like you have arrived at your table somewhere in Europe ~ miles away even if you are a local . Treat yourself ~ you'll be glad you did.

We live in the Victoria area and have never been to the villa Eyrie so thought we would try it. From the time we walked into the restaurant and were seated at table with the most outstanding view we had an wonderful experience. The waitress was excellent and friendly, the food was delicious and not overpriced. We met a manager who actually took in a van down to the newly located Spa so we could see the area and services. Then he took us to an outdoor area where they will be putting in a whiskey bar, tables and seating areas where the view continues to wow you. We also checked the 'Villa Cello' on the hill above the restaurant where we are contemplating a ladies weekend. Outstanding building with a common gourmet kitchen, welcoming dining and living rooms and once again the continued to awe us. We could see Victoria just over Mount Finlayson and on a clear day Mount Baker. We all agreed we would definitely be back :)

Spectacular beautiful sunny warm spring day with Mt Baker dominating in one direction and the stunning Finlayson Arm in another. Interior in tip top condition with recent renovations. We were not rushed and time was given to enjoy looking around inside and stepping out onto the deck both before and after our meal. Crisp, lightly battered Fish n' Chips plated with excellent tartar sauce, huge fries (real potatoes), tasty coleslaw and lemon wedge and finishing with a tasty shared Apple dessert. A perfect Belated Birthday Lunch for my 92 year old cousin.

The Dine Cowichan special menu gave us a chance to try this fine restaurant for the first time at an exceptionally good value. Everything was superb. Gourmet food, exceptionally gracious service, a scenic view unmatched anywhere else on Vancouver Island. It wAs my husband’s birthday, and we were treated to Prosecco for a birthday toast and a candle in his dessert. The German baker on staff here is a genius and the variety of special breads and crackers in the complementary bread basket was outstanding. Absolutely top notch all around from amuse bouche to petit fours to end the meal.

My wife and I just had a nice dinner during our stay at Villa Eyrie (a beautiful spot). The dinner was very well as we started off with a bice and crunchy ceasar salad followed by a great tenerloin all done very well. Special was the home made breads (perfect) and the lovely full bodied Black Hills wine we had. Really worth to mention is the great service of „Ron“ the waiter we had this lovely evening. He took very good care of us and his service was very good. So in summary a nice experience we can only recommend.
