“Good food and great sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

After our annual street golf tournament, twenty six of us sat down to dinner. Service was prompt, efficient and very friendly.
My wife and I shared Calamari, Scallops and tex mex salad. All were very tasty. Amongst our group we tried every thing on the menu. Everyone without exception enjoyed their meal. All this and a spectacular sunset over Georgia Strait.

Absolutely blew us away! The service was unbelievable. 250 people served with an absolutely delicious meal. Well done Thalassa - you were all amazing.

“Best Pizza in Oceanside...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

ever since Ollivander's closed.
I had pizza here for the first time this week, and the price, portions, and quality were really quite good. To be fair I didn't eat in the restaurant so I can't speak for the service or ambiance (althought the view of the ocean is really beautiful). Their family combos are a good value, but the baked pastas aren't spectacular.

Overall I'd say eat their pizza if you are craving a good north american style pizza.

Whether you want pizza or something fancier, this is very reasonable and a great view!
Very good value for the money!

“A JEWEL IN OUR QUALICUM CROWN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

We have lived in Qualicum Beach for 25 + years & consider our Memorial Golf Club the ‘Jewel in The Crown’ of our wonderful Town - now appropriately topped by the sparkling Thalassa Restaurant.
Across these many years, we have ‘tried the rest’ - and are now convinced that ‘Thalassa is The Best’ - not only for all the usual & expected virtues of a top-notch eatery, e.g., consistently good food & service @ reasonable prices; cleanliness, comfortable spacious seating, a magnificent ocean view, ample free parking (including several spaces for the ‘disabled’) - an elevator for very senior ‘Seniors’ - like me.
But best of all are the great ‘people’ who keep Thalassa sparkling: Oura and Kalli, owner/managers, together with their devoted staff, unfailingly give us a warm & friendly welcome - only possible from truly hospitable people! - Thank you Ladies - Ted and Dee
