We stopped here on a whim at the end of the season. Even being one of only two tables at lunch, the food was very fresh and the service was attentive. The lodge itself looks lovely, and I would stay here another time. We both had salads, and they were large and loaded with lovely vegetables. The soup of the... More

We went for lunch. The main lodge is beautiful, dining area is first class. We had a great lunch and the service was top notch. The food was tasty and well presented. The view looks south from the lake me of the island. I recommend this place for dining. We did not stay here overnight.

We both had the seafood pasta which was amazing, the smoked salmon in it was the perfect size and flavour, the clams and mussels in the shell were fabulous. The service was wonderful and not intrusive, lovely server. The dining room was simple but tasteful and the window view was a beautiful bonus, there was also a doe eating on... More

The occasional cruise ship passes by to spice up the view while sipping wine on the balcony of the room or during dinner. Dinner on Friday, August 19th was fantastic !! The salmon was cooked to perfection, and the scallops with Duck Bacon (yes, there is such a thing and it is INCREDIBLE) were a real treat. Saturday we had... More

Always solid food with a spectacular marine vista, affordable wine selections and nicely prepared and presented fare. Most recent visit was on a Wednesday which apparently is locals night and offers Prime Rib which was excellent although the horseradish was way too hot even for my likes. To cap it off we were entertained by a trio playing some beautiful... More

Wow!!! What a breath taking dining area!! My salmon was cooked to perfection. The service was so lovely. After eating a beautiful breakfast or lunch, wander up the road and drive to the end of Joyce Road. There you will find the world renowned James Pottery. You won't believe your eyes.

Wonderful choice for our anniversary dinner. Choices are less than previous years, which is a great thing: what they are cooking, is done to perfection. My baked oysters were unusually served in a sauce. (Asked for a spoon, so as not to waste a drop). My husband had scallops topped with duck bacon. Yes, duck bacon! Great taste. My beef... More

We were two couples looking for a relaxing dinner after a full day visiting Quadra Island. We opted to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery and ocean breeze. Inside the lodge was a little warm, due to the sunshine streaming through the windows, so the deck was a perfect choice. Our server Dorothy was wonderful, providing menu suggestions and... More

We dined here on a recent weekend away with two other couples. We choose Tsa-Kwa-Luten because we thought it looked like a higher end place... this was not the case in reality. When we arrived for our reservation at 7:15 we had to wait and were told it was busy but they were handling it. It honestly didn't look that... More

Five star in all respects! We loved it. Reflects Weiwei culture, superb local ecologically sound practises, beautifully presented meals (we ate what came from the sea). Great views across Discovery Channel towards Campbell River, which were beautiful in the morning sun, and glorious at sunset when the sillouettes of near by trees and the islands sharp peaks were decorated by...
