Went there for a family get together, big family 12 adults. We had cocktails before dinner, then a great meal, some had dessert. The service was great, price good, relaxing.

The mood lighting in this restaurant is great. Large place, but the layout doesn't make it seem cavernous. Very comfortable for small or large groups. The white prawns were huge and delicious. Overall, enjoyed the meal and the ambience.

Salmon was good, service was very good but my salad was awful due to what they said was one of their signature dressings, a tomato pesto which was all oil and no flavor whatsoever.
Baked potato was dry, I think it had been baked awhile ago.

We have eaten at Budd Bay Cafe for years -ever since they opened. Went to lunch today. Had good food. However, one of the staff was attaching a shade to one of the windows. He was standing directly on the table next to the door on the west side. He was there for about 5 minutes. After he left, another guy came, He did a quick dry wipe of the table and put on the place settings. On the way out, I complained to the hostess. She assured me that all the tables are thoroughly cleaned before they are set. I explained what I saw. She further assured me that the table was thoroughly cleaned. So - she called me either a liar or delusional. This was like one of those scenes with the hidden camera. Not very assuring. D***, P***, G** (owners) ..... please do something to improve staff quality and how they treat customers. Thanks.
