I have tried this place about 5 times and have finally figured out how to have a great meal. Order the calamari salad. It will be one of the best salads you will ever have. Steaks are tough. Entrees are bland. Desserts can be disappointing...More

We have been there several times and the food has been consistently good however, the food can take a bit long in being served when they are busy.

The airport location does not detract from the enjoyable experience at this excellent restaurant. We have had both lunch and dinner on several occasions, including a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner. The food is excellent and the service first class.

On weekends they are open for breakfast which is amazing in itself. All other days lunch and dinner menu. Reservations recommended for any time you go. It's a small place that seats 30? Service is awesome. Great specials... More

The website has menus on it. I tried posting a link, but trip advisor will not allow websites in answers.

No, but for your best bet in Qualicum Beach area head to either Cuckoos (Coombs) or Salt Pizzaria (Parksville) for pizza. But if you want great pizza, head to Lantzville and have outstanding pizza at "Riso".
