Absolutely delicious. Went to celebrate hubby's birthday, and it was wonderful. We shared a couple of Tapas, 3 small plates, and 2 desserts. Can't wait to go back and try the chicken. Staff service was fantastic. Highly recommend Kama!

About the restaurant
Our award winning head chef Francis Martinez executes a menu that honours local producers to deliver contemporary dishes with a soft french influence. From our celebrated sablefish to the finest local beef, from small delicious snacks to robust courses, we aim to create a special experience for every guest.

The attention to detail we seek starts with our local farmers and producers and transcends to our preparation and cooking styles. From sourcing natural and organic ingredients to selecting special kindling for our wood burning Josper oven, we have a love for food and hospitality that is best when shared with our friends and guests.

Every dish we ordered was carefully crafted, delicious and delivered in synchrony. Megan, was a great server: always o. Top of things and suggesting spot on. We will definitely come back as there are more things I want to taste here.

Great evening out with friends. Excellent waiter and the food dishes were delicious and plated beautifully. A nice after dinner cocktail at the Watch Repair was a treat.

Our ethos, translating to “once they taste” or “they taste instantly,” it’s all about allowing you to savour the moments spent at our table.

Pat & Betty is a European inspired dinette & bar which takes its cues from family legacy and Canadian influence. A place to celebrate simply being together, with unapologetically indulgent food, vivid wines and big-hearted service.

About the restaurant
A cozy apres work, apres the day escape right inside the city. A warm room, great cocktails, simple food made well and a feel that makes you forget you're not in the mountains. A place to watch the game, play shuffle board or just unwind at the wood or with your dog on the patio.

This was my first time at the Wednesday Room and it was a delightful surprise. Apparently the place is bigger than it looks on the outside, but it’s still quite intimate. We had the popcorn and fried chicken as appetizers and loved the flavor combination. Our server was engaging and friendly but not in our space too much. We were there for lunch and it wasn’t too busy, so it would be a good place to have a private business Conversation. I’m really looking forward to going back for lunch or dinner soon and to check out the downstairs.
