A garden full of interesting driftwood art melded into the garden itself. It is a place to visit and enjoy the scenes. Stop and have a coffee or a meal and remember to walk about the local streets.

We came upon this place quite by accident on a drive from Victoria. We wandered in on a rainy Saturday afternoon and the staff was very pleasant. As their dining room wasn't opening for dinner for another hour, the staff opened up a couple of their unoccupied rooms for us to look around in and told us to wander around... More

This past Sunday a Victoria couple and ourselves from Sooke had an absolutely stunning lunch in the dinning room. A beautiful sunny day with a candle lite table complete with white linen waiting for us, infront of one of the best views in the Province. The waitresses were friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive and the dining room warm and very relaxing.... More

We booked a night for my mothers birthday, we had the dinner paired with wine, it was delicious, the rooms were very comfortable and each with it's own balcony.

Been to the Sooke Harbour House many times for lunch, dinner, and special occasions such as New Year's Eve. The service, ambiance, and food are always exceptional. The only element preventing our more frequent visits is the menu prices. Worth the money, but expensive for our budget.

I cannot understand why this restaurant has had such mixed reviews, this was one of the best meals we have ever had the pleasure of devouring!! The four courses were just under $80 and a fantastic value. The service was flawless, thank you Eric, your drink recommendations were spot on. We are on the hunt for Sea cider here! Chef... More

The Sooke Harbour House serves four course meals for $80. I thought that you got a small amount of artistically displayed food - pretty and probably alot of work to produce but not very filling. My husband, on the other hand, enjoyed his dinner and thought it was worthwhile. The ambience of the hotel is charming with its' big crackling... More

Sooke Harbour House has long been one of our favourite haunts. Lovely views, gorgeous dining room, and great food. Our last visit was on Valentine Day evening - the food was good but not exceptional and salty. The service was just awful. We felt that we were being "preached" too by our female server. She was cold, aloof, and intrusive... More

You can stay at Sooke Harbour House and what a pleasure it would have been but we were staying in Victoria and drove there for dinner. It doesn't look far on the map but with busy evening traffic, allow an hour and take a GPS - it's well worth finding. The menu, the food, the service and indeed the whole... More
