The art gallery alone is worth the visit, even if you don't stay there! The grounds are full of hidden benches and driftwood artifacts. Loved it!

We encountered this place absoluely unexpectedly but it was a very nice surprise in the middle of nowhere. The atmosphere is really cozy and pleasant, food - delicious and natural, staff very helpful and friendly. Very beautiful view on the harbour, deers and other animals walking by. We really loved the place.

I had been to SHH many years ago and enjoyed spectacular meals. A recent business trip to Victoria led to some discussion with colleagues about our finest dining experiences in the world. I offered up Sooke Harbour House as being in my top 10. Which led to a trip back there. First, the evening was stunning. Scenery was at its... More

My husband and I ate here on May 31st. for his 50th. birthday and we were both disappointed. The menu was very limited with only 3 main courses to choose from and it was very pricey. We each had the 3 course dinner with one drink each and it was over $200.00 and the food was just ok. One of... More

The food was good but certainly not as different as I expected after hearing do many things. We have been to many fine dining restaurants over the years and expected much more originality and different fine dining dishes.

A garden full of interesting driftwood art melded into the garden itself. It is a place to visit and enjoy the scenes. Stop and have a coffee or a meal and remember to walk about the local streets.

We came upon this place quite by accident on a drive from Victoria. We wandered in on a rainy Saturday afternoon and the staff was very pleasant. As their dining room wasn't opening for dinner for another hour, the staff opened up a couple of their unoccupied rooms for us to look around in and told us to wander around... More

This past Sunday a Victoria couple and ourselves from Sooke had an absolutely stunning lunch in the dinning room. A beautiful sunny day with a candle lite table complete with white linen waiting for us, infront of one of the best views in the Province. The waitresses were friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive and the dining room warm and very relaxing.... More
