The prices of any dining establishment reflect quality of food, atmosphere and service. Kalvas Restaurant is worth every penny. Holly is an exceptional server. Insist on sitting in her section if possible.

They have accommodated groups of 20 to 25 from The Parksville Newcomers Club on occasion. I am not sure if 35 would be too large a group. I tend to think not. They may ask you to pick your lunches ahead of time from the... More
