Very pleasantly surprised with such a nice dinner at an airport hotel. I had their seared salmon and my husband had pasta with spicy lamb meatballs. Both very flavorful, nice spices, and well presented. Also had breakfast there the next morning, Eggs Benedict and 2 eggs over easy with sides. Very good, both came with small bowl of fresh fruit and grilled tomato half in addition to toast or hash browns.

This is my second time having dinner at Cavu. I was not impressed about their food at all. We ordered a calamari as a starter. It was cold. I mentioned to the server and the server was nice to remove it from our bill. Then, two out of four entrees were cold too. I didn't bother mentioning to the server. Both salmon and halibut entrees were cold. My dad and I were so disappointed. I don't know what went wrong in the kitchen. But the table next to us had the same issue. They sent back their meals. It's really not worth going back there.

The service was great.....free underground parking.....we were able to meet and visit for hours with family before catching ferry back to Vancouver Island.
The Manager was very accommodating for my wheat intolerance....they brought me specially made potatoes and toast at no extra charge - that is a surprise
Thank you

The food was amazing but the service was HORRIBLE we sat for over 30min without getting our drinks, our appetizers came very late and never was asked about our dinner orders. When we got our bill we needed to send it back 2 times because of errors. The whole experience (if was positive) should have taken 30- 45 min and instead it took 1.5h without even an order for our main course food

This was by far one of the worst dining experience I've ever had. My fiancé and I went to eat at Cavu during their happy hour.....and it was certainly anything BUT happy. First off, they had big sign saying "Happy Hour Specials" outside - but we were soon disappointed to find out that they were out of their mussels even though the there was only ONE other table there. Seriously, there were no NO other diners there except for us and this other table. Why advertise Happy Hour with a big sign when you can't even sustain the menu? Their other food was cold, bland, and they served the driest, hardes pork meatballs I have ever had. Their "BBQ duck flatbread" looks like something an average teenager could whip up in a jiffy as an after school snack. Their spring rolls were bland, unexciting and pale in colour. We waited for so long to get service as the waitresses were all too busy setting up for breakfast for tomorrow morning. So disappointing. We were really hoping for a good dining experience, but unfortunately got much less than we expected.

This was my 2nd time here and it was just as good as the 1st time. I had organized a group gathering and chose this place as it was central for everyone. We all loved the food, the ambience and the service was ☆☆☆☆☆!! Quickly becoming a fav place to hang out with friends 😊😍

We had the dine-out menu with the wine pairings - the food is very good - interesting spices and combinations of flavours, artfully served. The staff are friendly, and the wine selections are excellent (if a bit on the cold side when first served). There was a live guitarist who played very nice background music that added to the experience. We have eaten here once before from their regular menu and were very pleased with the food - great flavour combinations!

Everything was fine, nothing fantastic. This was a second visit, and since last time the service was phenomenal, I prompted others to come with. But when I walked up to one of the waitresses, she glared at me and did not say anything. Not sure what to do I stood there until another waitress came over, and I proceeded to tell her I had a reservation and everything else went fine. Overall impression: food was fine, ambience is fine, it's really just that. Fine.

Christmas Eve dinner buffet was amazing, and good value for what you get with lots of seafood, a variety of good vegetable dishes and salads, chicken/roast beef and yummy desserts.
Location is central and parking is good

Came here with a few friends for a little xmas dinner get together. The services was great, the food was good.

They had live music and since they are in a hotel, they have free parking.

Food and service were pretty good. The rooms was a bit cool and cavernous for a cold winter day. Not sure that gluten aware meant gluten free, for the celiacs out there ... but overall, the experience was a good one!!

Cavu is a solid, dependable type of restaurant. Nothing flashy about it, but the food is excellent, and the service is solid. Good value for money, recommend as an everyday type of choice.
