The atmosphere here is calm and relaxing. The staff are very knowledgeable on the food and the wine. The Chefs are amazing. Expensive, but well worth the experience.

We enjoyed a superb lamb dinner while at the Sooke Harbour House Restaurant last Monday evening (September 28th). The food was wonderful and chats with our incredibly knowledgeable sommelier/waitress (Jessica) really made the evening. We hope to RETURN soon - Peter & Ann.

Have enjoyed dinners, lunches and overnight stays at the Sooke Harbour House. Never been disappointed and will return again and again for special occasions only as the menu and guest rooms are expensive.
