During our dinner at Black Rock Oceanfront Resort's Fetch restaurant, we experienced the wild beauty of a Pacific storm and the best of Vancouver Island’s fall bounty. It was a blustery October evening with blowing rain and howling wind when my colleague, Anja, and I sat down for dinner next to the floor-to-ceiling windows and sipped Pergola Prosecco while watching the storm pound the coast.

Surrounded by the swirling Pacific Ocean on three sides, the setting at Fetch Restaurant is absolutely mesmerizing. With its dark walls blending into the night sky and contemporary light wood accents, Fetch’s sensual atmosphere is ideal for enjoying the local seasonal fresh food and Ocean Wise seafood prepared by Executive Chef Louise Pickles.

Anja and I started our culinary indulgence at Fetch by slathering salted butter and olive oil on the freshly baked focaccia on our table - pure bliss! From there we sampled the organic chicken and lemon thyme croquettes smothered in a goat cheese, tomato paprika sauce that was plate licking good.

Moving on to starters, I enjoyed the crispy duck salad with watercress, daikon, fresh cabbage and mango topped with duck confit. The salad was crunchy, light and refreshing and the serving was fairly large. Anja ordered the tuna chirashi, a meal, in itself, with fresh avocado slices, tuna sashimi, chanterelles, spicy chirashi on a bed of daikon with rice, nori and cucumber. It too was fresh, tasty and delightful.

As the rain and wind intensified, we chatted with our friendly and knowledgeable server, Noamie, about the entrees. In addition to the fabulous seafood on the menu, Fetch was featuring a hanger steak for the “Butcher Block” special. We couldn’t stay away from the seafood though and Anja decided on the Blow Hole roll sushi, and I ordered the albacore tuna with corn, bacon and potato hash.

The albacore tuna arrived very fresh and seared in a generous portion that could easily be shared between two people. The Blow Hole sushi, one of the intriguing fusion maki rolls served at Fetch, features spicy tuna, tobiko roe and flavourful fruit salsa. The Blow Hole roll was so yummy, I’d definitely try the other Fetch sushi rolls and pair it with one of the great cocktails or local beers on the menu.

For desert, I had the tiramisu with espresso ice cream and Anja indulged in the hazelnut mousse cake. The tiramisu was heavenly on a bed of cocoa nibs and the espresso ice cream was so delicious I devoured it as if I was ravenous. Anja’s hazelnut mouse cake was rich and decadent.

the food was mediocre, the prices are high, and there are mosquitoes when you sit close to view the outside beautiful ocean. May be the mosquitoes are a seasonal problem.

Lots of window seating to take in the amazing views. Breakfast menu has steel cut oats on it that were prepared to perfection with blueberries and cinnamon sugar. Sausages are from a BC organic butcher shop. Great service at both breakfast and dinner with staff very attentive and friendly even at the end of the season!

Anniversary dinner as part of the gourmet pkg at the hotel. We made reservations with front desk the morning of with ease.

It reminded me of the North Shore of Oahu, just cooler. Absolutely beautiful big windows to the rugged coastline.

Server was fantastic. Knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. We had drinks, appy and main for $100 which was very reasonable.

Deserts looked gorgeous but we were so full, we opted out. The halibut was tasty and presented in a broth. I loved it. The pasta did not impress, but it is pasta. how exciting can it be.

We went to the lounge for an after dinner drink which was the perfect ending to a great dinner. I would recommend enjoying a special occasion here.
