Lunch on a beautiful afternoon overlooking the water at Sidney, this is such a beautiful spot! Inside - unfortunately the service staff seemed to be constantly a step behind keeping on top of their tables. The staff was constantly on the run, tables were not being cleared in a timely fashion and the food was just 'okay'. I asked our... More

Overall good experience, friendly and efficient staff. Fish and chips were cooked to perfection, although I ordered just one piece of the fish it was tasty and more than adequate.

We've eaten at Haro's for years, and it's always held a special place for us as we had our first date there. Alas, the quality and flavour of meals has not held over time. On a recent dinner visit, farmed salmon was on the menu (we were told that the prices on fresh were too high to make it affordable)... More

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are serving, and have been for more than 7 months, wild sockeye salmon. We did try an organic farmed salmon for a very short period of time in 2016, but quickly moved back to wild in September of last year. We tried the organic farmed not for cost reasons, but rather because we... More

On a quick one night trip to Sidney we happened upon Haro's for dinner. Prawn hot pot, falafel burger, parmesan truffle frites. All superb and we can't wait to return! I can't recall our servers name but he was very personable and the view can't be beat.

We stopped in for appetizers on a Sunday evening and shared two appetizers. We had their starter-pizza and their calamari. The pizza was very nice, but we found the calamari to be tender but it had too much cayenne pepper on it. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. We did not have an entree here, and the...

Ate here one evening recently after getting stranded at the airport. The menu was varied with choices for everyone. Food and service were both good. It can be a bit on the noisy side so maybe not suited for an intimate dinner. If you are staying at the hotel, and good choice for dinner.
