Excellent meal, loved the pork cutlet! Only problem with being in Bella Coola late in the season is that many menu items start to run out and selection becomes limited. Surprised that this placed closed so early (7pm), if it hadn't we would have dinned here again, instead of at the Inn across the street. Maybe why they close so... More

Hi DHPhotography, I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the pork cutlets, when we took over the restaurant, in May, we decided start making our own, instead of buying frozen (along with the veggies too)...I'm glad you could taste the improved quality!! We will be adjusting our hours next season to better serve people. Thanks again for the feedback!! More

There are not many eating options in Bella Coola, but we did want to try what was there. This really is a fast food cafe and it's fine, no more. Service is fast and friendly. There is a veggie burger, but no real light and healthy options. And it closes at seven.

I posted a previous review for this place by mistake, because their names are almost the same. SO this means I take it all back what I said in May 2015: it was meant for the BC Valley INN!! This little place was closed in April when I was there. I am so happy to see it is open again.... More

Hey mbw56, I saw your review in May, and knew it wasn't for us, thanks for taking the extra time to write about us "again". There was a small fire in April, which shut us down for a few weeks, but we are up and running again! I'm happy to hear that you enjoy dining with us, we always do... More

Great staff. Menu offers different ethnic options. Food appetizing & hot. Room divided into 4 sections to give feel of semi privacy. Light & bright. Server was friendly & fun. Also had continental breakfast which had good choices.

This is the place where the locals eat and catch up on news. The food was very basic, but good. The service was friendly, when you can get their attention, but tenuous at best. Despite trying to wave down a waitress for a glass of water refill, I was never successful.

I drove from Colorado and was surprised at the lack of amenities in Bella Coola. Granted, I didn't do much research, but when I got there I couldn't find an open restaurant, motel or gas station. I wound up sleeping in my van at the dock and having breakfast here. I was very surprised that the prices were reasonable! Food... More

Hey eedoonan, Thanks for taking the time to write a review! Unfortunately everything shuts down pretty early in Bella Coola (I hope your van was somewhat comfortable).

Went here while visiting my brother in Bella Coola. We were able to satisfy all including the vegetarians in the party. The orders were diversified running from sandwiches to a complete dinner. The food was well prepared and fresh. The price was reasonable, considering that Bella Coola us at the end of the world😀.
