The venue is fresh and clean and with a modern interior design. We had the brunch which was totally delicious and a great value. The prices are comparable to a regular restaurant breakfast but you receive a 5 star presentation and a view of Finlayson Arm that is breathtaking. The service is attentive and professional.

I think our favourite breakfast out is the Alpina at Villa Eyrie. Luxury and view with generous portions of great food. The service is always top notch. Definitely worth a trip up the Malahat. Make sure you order the Latte which comes with a wee biscotti. They totally get it! Lattes should never be served without a biscotti!!

Most everything was great, but my partner was disappointed that his hash came with only dark meat turkey. We were pleased that the parking area had been cleared/salted/gritted as there was so much snow there.

Went on a wintry day for breakfast and it was magical with all the snow on the trees. We had a great view of the inlet and could see some of the mountains in the distance.

One gulten free meal was accommodated successfully. Two pasta meals were excellent. A short rib meal was a small portion but great tasting.
A cocktail was made to order with perfection!! The other cocktails were also good.
Wine prices $90 a bottle and up resulted in no sales in the whole restaurant. Needs reviewing.

We enjoyed a wonderful pre Christmas breakfast with dear friends at the Alpina Restaurant. It was a beautiful sunny morning and we were seated at a table with stunning views overlooking Finlayson arm. Our meals were fabulous and service impeccable. We didn't feel rushed at all. Would highly recommend.

We recently enjoyed a lovely meal at Alpina for our Anniversary. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne to toast our special day. We had starters and mains and all was outstanding. Our server was friendly and attentive. We found all staff were cheerful and welcoming. Covid protocols of the highest standard were met and we felt very safe. We commend them for the outstanding service during this difficult time. Would highly recommend and we will go back.

Not only are the views tremendous at Villa Eyrie, so is the overall dining experience. If you want a special place to go to, this is it. I would highly recommend the Alpina Restaurant as I have had breakfast and dinner there on many occasion. It has always been worthy of another visit.

Dinner was amazing. It was just getting dark when we arrived so we still got to enjoy the view. Our server Paul was awesome and entertained our table. We will be back for sure. I've already told friends how great our meal was.

Honestly, this was a 5 star meal through and through. I went with my parents for my 40th birthday. It was a sunny day and we had the most gorgeous view over the Malahat. The food was so decently priced for the amount of food you got - my parents loved every bit. They did not skimp on anything (ex. seafood pasta actually had lots of seafood); each dish had a different flavour profile (and I'm a pretty picky foodie). We were very impressed.
