COVID dining update: Our harbour side and street side patios are open for your dining pleasure but until after the May long-weekend we are unable to take online reservations for the patios due to weather, and spacing restrictions. We will be updating this as more information becomes available or restrictions are lifted or modified. Thank you for your support during this past year!





Our chef’s approach will emphasize hand-crafted and ethically produced ingredients featuring British Columbia and, in particular, Vancouver Island ranchers, micro-brewers, vintners and artisanal producers that share his vision and passion for fresh, local & sustainable.



Our bar features the best local and international wines including 4 signature by-the-tap varietals. Our draught selection features local breweries dedicated to their craft.



Welcome aboard!

    Overall a good experience - the waitress was doing her best but seemed to have the entire outside deck area as her section. Other staff were providing support so perhaps they were unexpectedly short-staffed? She was very pleasant and knowledgable about the menu when she was able to get to us. The food was absolutely delicious - four different selections, all great

    Fabulous service our waitress was thoughtful, really understood our needs and responded beautifully, The food was delicious and we would definitely go again, the only disappointment was upon entering the hostess was not as welcoming and when my party arrived she asked if she could find me, one hostess said NO JUST WAIT, that did not set a good tone for her evening, fortunately our server, the food and ambiance made up for it,

    Even with a reservation we were lead to a small table in back of a restaurant with great views. It was a big deal to change us. Wine list very limited and the. Our 1st 2 choices were out of stock! Food was OK, but still lagging behind others in the area.

    Had a long wait for happy hour appies, waitress did mention they were short in the kitchen so that was ok. Server that took our drinks order had a black tshirt covered in stains, bar area that we could see from our table was littered with Starbucks cups. Just seemed grubby, no obvious manager there and the place seemed in desperate need of someone to organize the staff. I had the tuna tataki, tuna came out topped with slices of pepper than still had the seeds and core inside looked like a 9 year old had plated it. I am a local and my last meal there about 6 months ago was much better. Very disappointed.

    The food was good but I ordered the Steak and Seafood platter for Two (which has Snow Crab) and the waitress did not bring the proper utensils to eat it. I had to ask for the cracker and the tiny fork to extract the meat. She should have known to bring this. She placed the platter length-wise and we were expected to just eat off the platter. I had to ask for plates and then she only brought small plates. I recommend placing the platter horizontally across the table and then giving people dinner plates to put their food on and eat. The waitress was trying and she seemed nice, but needs more training. The steak tasted fine but was a bit tough - not very tender.
