I would recommend the cod encrusted in parmesan. Mouth watering . Waitresses were prompt and very friendly. Everything arrived as ordered

We had a very good dinner here! The smoked salmon was just amazing as much as the white sangria and the desserts! The service was very good, the view from outside is gorgeous but a little bit windy! Recommended 100%

Stopped in for dinner before a kayak trip. Even though the power was out they stayed open with a bbq and salads to make sure people got fed - there are not a lot of options! Great food, friendly service, spectacular view.

Location - beautiful. Staff - great and worked hard. Food - The Worst - not even an effort. Order the ‘House Special’ Fish and Chips - not sure it was even fish - rubbery. Other burgers I saw were run of the mill frozen patties....Surprised at such a low bar for food as they are the only real option there. Too bad.More

So glad we made reservations because people were lined up outside after 6pm and the restaurant follows Covid protocols so there is less indoor seating (well-distanced). We had a lovely view of the harbour and freshly prepared meals that were satisfying and reasonably-priced. It's a...great family-friendly restaurant with a woodsy, warm atmosphere, located at the end of an old boardwalk lined with historic homes with descriptions. Recommend.More

On a recent trip to Telegraph Cove we had a lovely lunch at The Killer Wave Cafe, overlooking the marina. My husband had fish & chips and said they were very good. I had a Cesar Salad with a seafood combo of salmon, halibut &...prawns. Yum! Our server was friendly, helpful and followed all the Covid-19 protocols.More

Had to wait a bit as it's a busy place, especially with COVID restrictions but we got seated in good time and the service was efficient and friendly. Sadly we did not get a window seat but the view looked excellent. Had a clubhouse and...ceasar salad and both were delicious. I'd go back.More

Get a great meal for a reasonable price. There are many choices. The restaurant is doing a great job with safety protocols.

This is an off the beaten path restaurant at Telegraph Cove and what a pleasant surprise. Had their soup for lunch and it was wonderful. Ended up back there the same evening after whale watching and had dinner. They did not disappoint. Service was fantastic....Highly recommended.More

In a lovely setting, on an old boardwalk, next to the marina, with old houses from the 1920’s onward build along the boardwalk. At the end you will find this gem, next to the pub. I had the fish and chips, which was very good,...my wife had the Greek platter, which was enough for two. Well worth a visit and reasonably priced.More
