Having grown up in Victoria I had been to the previous restaurant that stood where the new "Beach House Restaurant" stands. It is still a beautiful location and the renovations are stunning. While they are currently only a casual dining restaurant, I hear there are plans to open the bottom level for fine dining.
I had been hearing mixed reviews about this new restaurant, but I felt it was good that people were at least talking about it. It was about time to check it out!
We were seated in the bar area, as it was a pretty busy night for them! I'm not sure if our waiter was one of the owners but he was an older gentleman, very straight to the point, not a whole lot of niceties. I didn't notice there were specials of the evening until the waitress for the table next to us began to spout them off. Which in turn made me realize we had not heard them. That's okay though, we found items we wanted on the menu and waited patiently. We began with the appetizer of fresh chips, which were deliciously crisp and slightly flavoured. Served with a refreshing dip, our table of 4 all enjoyed them. Our waiter then cleared our chip dish in what seemed preparation for our meals arriving, however they didn't arrive for a good 10-15 minutes later. Unfortunately, 2 of our 4 meals were incorrect and had to be re-done so we did not all receive our meals together.
I think SM & I will go back and try some more items. The prices were affordable and the view hard to beat! I would definitely call ahead next time to get a table by the windows!
Go check out this new restaurant and let's see if we can get it's rating up on Urbanspoon.
