Description: Ocean7 Restaurant and AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar located at Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa is newly renovated and re-opens in early March 2017. The new AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar features creative casual shared plates paired with fine wines and signature cocktails, while Ocean 7 Restaurant will focus on West Coast seafood, grain fed meats and fresh organic produce from local sustainable growers and suppliers. The culinary experience will be unparalleled with unique creations from our Executive Chef Nyle Petherbridge, an accomplished Red Seal chef who created menus for some of most successful well known establishments in British Columbia. Your senses will be awakened enjoying tantalizing food for the palate while gazing out to the vast ocean views which was the main focus in the design process. Spectacular panoramic waterscape views welcome you as you enter the main entrance for the two restaurants. Design elements make use of French provincial flair and modern West Coast accents featuring beautiful wine displays, soft woods, stone and antique tile finishes. Centralized in the AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar is an inviting New York style bar with rich marble countertops sourced from Vancouver Island’s top quarries. On beautiful sunny days, two large garage doors will open up to the patio enticing you to sit outside and bask in the warm sun with breathtaking views of the ocean and the beloved lush Kingfisher gardens. The new oversized outdoor fire pit will be a romantic spot to cozy up to watch the spectacular wildlife and sunsets. The adjoining space, Ocean 7 Restaurant, maintains a fine dining atmosphere with view tables and cozy booths, stair stepped to allow amazing vistas for all. The Kingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa, not only a destination Spa Resort, but a destination for a top culinary tasting experience!

My wife and I had dinner here during our stay at the Kingfisher Resort. I was happily surprised by the quality of the menu, and ultimately the quality of the food.

We shared the mussel appetizer. The mussels were sweet and succulent and not over-cooked. My salmon dinner had great flavors. The salmon was slightly over-done, but still moist and flavorful. My wife's halibut was also done just a bit much, but was flakey and delicious.

We each had a dessert, which is not our custom. My mixed berry dessert and her Pavlova were very tasty.

All of the dishes were beautiful to look at and nhad good flavors. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is the high price. But I have paid more for food that wasn't this good.

The seafood was perfect, and we loved the creative use of squid ink. The chefs here obviously know what they're doing :) service was great, everything was timely, and we couldn't have been more satisfied with the meal.

I had the rib-eye for dinner, It was well done and delicious, We had a great caesar salad and calamari for snacks another day, and waffles with sausage for breakfast.. They have a good selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The price is a little high but within reason for a hotel restaurant.

We had a very nice dinner, and breakfast here, the ceviche was amazing, surrounded by avocado and served with chips, we will have again! We both had the rib eye as it sounded divine, and did not disappoint cooked to perfection and just the right amount. We followed up tghe next morning with local crab benny, it was succulent, decadent even, again, we will be sure to have this when we return.
