“Nice views and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

The place needs a coat of paint and new curtains but on the bright side the food was consistently excellent and the view is even better. Make sure you get a window seat and enjoy the wildlife as you dine. We had seafood and Italian food on several nights and the quality was excellent every time.

“Great location, but the menu is uninspiring.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

We went to La Gondola with a friend visiting from out of town. The menu appeared to be unchanged since the 1950's. Heavy on the meats and sauces, light on anything vegetarian.

The only vegetarian options were fries, onion rings, garlic bread and a very bland salad - iceberg lettuce with a few tomato slices and onions. This is not a meal. I live here in Prince Rupert, so there are other better options for vegetarians. Instead try The Crest (the pub or restaurant), Breakers, Bamboo Shoot, Opa Sushi or Lee and Ann's. For lunch or coffee it's hard to beat Java Dot Cafe. It has free wi-fi and computer access for a small fee. Cowpuccino's is also a great choice for coffee, but tends to be louder.

“Best Hamburgers in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

Without question the best burgers in town come from the Drive-In. It's something about them being wrapped in the foil packages. The milkshakes are perfect too.
