“Nice place”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We had dinner on the patio. It was very nice. We had fish and chips ( what else);) it can't get fresher with the fish. It was good and the servers are very nice there. We staid at the hotel and we usually eat where we stay so we don't have to drive. We would go there any time again to have dinner. And if your cold they even have some nice blankets to use they hang on the chairs at every table. Nice touch. Cheers

“Nice spot for food”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We had lunch on the patio and it was lovely. The service was very nice and no issues at all. Food was great and met my expectations. The inside of the restaurant was nice looking and the spa looked nice attached as well. Great concept to have a spa and full entertainment restaurant.

“fabulous dinner on the waterfront”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

service was fantastic and the food was delightful . I had the filet and it was one of the best I have had. The restaurant and lounge is spacious so it is not too loud and make conversations easy. If you are a guest at the hotel check to see if you qualify for a 15% discount with a vip card.

“Money is not everything folks .....”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I used to go to a Hotel restaurant in Calgary to eat, as my friends worked there, the food was a bit more expensive plus was not oversized as so many meal portions are nowadays but the taste of the food was great .... this is how Haro's is to me.

The staff are very friendly , always professional, plus are dressed/groomed impeccably like you would expect in a restaurant with this ultra modern design.

There is a great selection of food, wine , spirits , etc , plus part of the restaurant is considered a lounge so if one is looking for drinks & few light snacks it works too.

My favorite 2 things about this restaurant besides the young professional staff of course, is the Seafood chowder soup, & that they actually serve food HOT !!! ... sorry but far too many food establishments do not serve food this way, instead often depending on the "hot lamps" keeping food appropriate temperature ... NOT !

My only 2 comments is that it can be a bit noisy during popular times such as Friday & Saturday nights but to be expected however it is because of the lack of noise dampening design by our architectural friends ... you know form over function .... I mean I love the actual ambiance of location not to mention the views of the Oceanside and well coiffed outside landscaping ... Did I mention that they have a great outdoor patio like all Van-Island eateries should have ??? My other suggestion is a common concern for many establishments is lack of choice and expense $$$ of desserts .... i.e. I was at a White Spot restaurant recently and they were promoting a $7 plus tax piece of pie ... really .... anyway it would be nice to see some smaller portion desserts for us that are Needing to watch their health under $5 that 2 could share over a drink or coffee ... but I have tried number of things at Haro's ... all good , plus check out there great daily specials during the week ... oh one last thing as Columbo used to say make reservations for peak times, you will need to call thru the Hotel then be transferred to Haro's ... if you get the voicemail be sure to leave a message along with time, number of people in party, etc you want and the staff WILL get back to the number as soon as they can .... enough give it a try folks ....

Cheers,
