We had not been there in a few years, and I knew that the restaurant changed hands a few times since then. We were on our way back from a Victoria airport run, and stopped there 10 minutes before it was to open. It was very cold out at -3c. We asked and they said they were going to open in 10 minutes at 8am. After waiting outside shivering until 8:10, watching the people inside running back and forth, there was no sign from them that they were going to let us in from the cold so we had to leave. I wish they had at least acknowledged us or let us know how much longer, or at least let us wait inside the door. We didn't need their attention right away, just some warmth. The view is spectacular- I hope they have great service the rest of the time. All we needed was a nod of the head, or something to let us know they were thinking of us. They knew we were there, and we were ignored. And we were really cold!

Stopped on our way back from Victoria, and was pleasantly surprised. Their burger was amazing and the service was great - not to mention the view. We'll be back!!

Stopped here for lunch on our way home from Victoria. Patio was under renovation and you can tell it'll provide fantastic views once complete. The service was very friendly and food for the most part was good. Only disappointment was the $19 Fishermans Soup. For the price I expected more seafood and flavour. Normally you only need a soup spoon for soup but with the big pieces of broccoli and carrots you actually needed a fork and knife as well. It would have been nice to have toasted buttered bread served with it as well instead of plain sliced bread. The mussels were really tasty and the Chocolate Cheesecake was fantastic.

Stopped in on the way up the island for Eggs Benny. It was cool so we sat inside at a corner table to enjoy the view. The waitress was very good, although it is true that it was not a busy day. When I asked for fruit instead of potatoes, I was accommodated easily and got a mixture of berries instead of the usual melon fruit salad, which was very nice. Will likely go back another day.
