    Very pleasant dinner; fabulous view across the water. Food was very good; we shared the coconut prawns and the Mediterranean platter to start, both of which were good and then we both had the pan-seared halibut which was excellent. Our waitress was helpful, friendly and efficient. Well worth visiting.

    Reserved patio ahead of time. Arrived only to find patio full. Was told we don't reserve patio, but no where is that mentioned when you reserve. There was an open section on the patio, but we were told they were short staffed, so couldn't seat us. Were seated inside and told no option to move if seats outside became available. Not 20 minutes later, 2 separate parties were seated in te "closed" patio section. Along with this review, and a Google review, am letting as many folks as I can, know about the shoddy service.

    A birthday dinner for two and a lovely late spring evening to look out over the bay at Parksville. The dinner was well prepared althought the caesar salad was very cold, the romaine lettuce hadn't been given time out of the fridge prior to serving. Highly recommend the short ribs, which melt in the mouth. The seafood pasta was also excellent and the deserts delicious. The service did feel a bit rushed. Each course arrived very quickly - even our waiter exclaimed that he didn't realize the deserts would be out so soon. Also a bit of a problem in removing dishes that were finished. When we left we had a stack of desert dishes and side plates that were used for the shared salad still on the table. The ambience, with a terrific view and a wonderful spanish guitarist playing ubobtrusively in the background was terrific. We'll be back.

    Had a guest from Alberta who loves seafood….she had the mussels and is still raving about how good they were. The coconut prawn appy is also so very tasty. We have dinners at the bayside on a regular basis…have to show off the view and the beautiful decor as well as enjoy a good meal to everyone who visits!

    My husband and I were lucky to get a seat at the window and we enjoyed the view. We had the warm spinach dip with tortilla chips as an appetizer. My meal (mushroom ravioli) was served a little on the cool side, but it was very tasty. My husband's (prawn & scallop linguine) was served hot and he said it was excellant, and he would definitely order it again. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine, from a limited wine list. Service was friendly and efficient. It was a little loud, but we both look forward to returning.
