I have recommended this restaurant to many travellers heading to Nanaimo. A few came back to report what a disappointment it had been. I chalked this up to their poor taste in food. After a few years of being away from Nanaimo I decided to hop over there for lunch, in one of the best restaurants around in my opinion. I took my nephew and was so excited to be going.
As soon as we walked in I knew something was amiss. What once was wonderful ambiance was now a hodge-podge of stuff that one may have gotten while travelling, or from someone else's grandmother. What's with the luck cats? Perhaps it is because they now serve sushi? Regardless, it clashes with the pub atmosphere left behind by the previous owners who had impeccable taste, in décor as in food!
Sadly the new owners also lack taste in food. Our meals arrived and we were terribly, terribly disappointed. Flavourless, poor presentation, not a good value.
For some all you can eat is great. For me, I'd rather have a small taste of heaven than a heap of garbage on my tongue any day!
The previous owners should have made these people change the name... does anyone know where the previous owners went? Did they open something somewhere else? Please tell me that they still have a fabulous restaurant somewhere... one to help us forget the terrible experience at this one!
Do yourself a favour and go to McDonalds instead!
