Stopped off here on our way to Ucluelet. The setting is lovely - we ate out on the terrace with a beautiful view of the river where we were able to enjoy the sight of sea planes taking off. However, it was a good job...More

6 of us had lunch there. All the portions were very generous, and food was good. The waitress, also was very personable. It took quite a while for our lunch to come however, so glad I wasn't on a work lunch break.
