My wife's cousins who live in Colwood took us here for lunch -- they said it was their favorite spot. I had the halibut ban mi (excellent although not very Vietnamese-tasting) and my wife had the seafood chowder. Given the glorious view, great service and food, it was a delightful experience.

We ate here as part of a golf and dine package. The steak is very well prepared, the salads and veggies are all fresh and tasty. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is light and upbeat.

We do not get to this restaurant often, but, as they had a three course Valentine's dinner we visited and enjoyed a nice meal. My wife started off with the Honey Roasted Pear Salad and then the Steak main course finishing with a Lemon Tart. I had the Kushi Oyster starter then the Roast Duck and lastly the same dessert....

This golf course restaurant has a lovely patio where you can watch the golfers come up to the 18th hole. There seemed to only be one server handling the patio and the restaurant inside, it took about 15 minutes for her to come out to take our drink order, after that the service was prompt.

Four of us enjoyed a fine dinner on a fine July evening, out on the large terrace. We shared starters of fries (delicious) and calamari. Two of the group ordered the steak and scallops, one opted for the halibut and chips and I enjoyed pasta with prawns, chorizo, sundried tomatoes and more. We all agreed the meals here are fairly...

Even if you are not a golfer, don't miss Forester's Bistro. We went up on a foggy day so there were not to many golfers on the course, but the Bistro still had dinners enjoying the views. Service was fast and very friendly, took requests for drinks and meal changes without any question. This was a very nice relaxing place... More

When it comes to dining at a golf club restaurant, I admit my experience is limited and when I have had the opportunity, the rewards have been less that favourable. Therefore — after a glorious sunny morning strolling through lavender scent-laden fields at the Happy Valley Lavender Farm in Metchosin, BC — it was with a hint of trepidation that... More
