Thought we would give the restaurant one more try? 45 minuets before a drink of water. Two hours before food arrived. Very disappointing experience again. Food was poor, steaks over cooked etc. Was an overall disappointing experience.

We’ve eaten here three times and all three times we have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food is fresh, delicious and served hot. The atmosphere is upscale and comfortable and the staff friendly. We would recommend this restaurant.

Both meals were excellent. Staff were very good, and looked after us very well. Steak was done to perfection. We will be back if we are up in Courtenay again.
