The food was superb & the suggested wine was the perfect pairing with the steak & peppercorn sauce. The service was amazing & knowledge excellant. Good size portions of everything. Calamari the best, along with the crabcakes. Definately a must "GO TO" restaraunt.

Always a favourite place to go for a meal ~ you can watch the planes take off and land while you're enjoying a drink or your meal. On my last visit, I decided on a lighter option of the calamari starter, paired with the beet and goat cheese salad. The calamari is done differently than other restaurants, and is really... More

Had a wonderful brunch with family and the food was fantastic. The restaurant is located at the Qualicum Beach airport and has a wonderful view of the runway. The service is very good that made for a delightful experience.

The restaurant is small and very clean with a view to the run way. Very nice atmosphere. The service was excellent and friendly. The food was very good with large portions. There was no waiting for service or the food order.

Attended for lunches and breakfast. Good value and good service. Prices are reasonable, although they do have upper end dinner specials.

Located in the Qualicum Beach airport, this little restaurant serves up great food and service. There is good variety on the menu with wallet friendly prices. The fish and chips and seafood chowder are my favorite choices. It is a good idea to make a reservation as it is a popular place with limited seating. There is an outside patio... More

Appetizers soups and salads arrived at the right time, wine and drinks were offered within minutes of us being seated. We had an assortment of dinners, they all arrived at the same time hot and well prepared. We have had a lot... More

A hidden gem in Qualicum Beach. The food is fantastic. Order the mushroom caps for starters, don't wait too long it sells out fast. Love this place, always has specials, but you need to make a reservation. It has a patio in the summer - sit out there and enjoy the small planes coming and going.

If you are looking for an awesome experience, outstanding food and personal service this unexpected place is for you. The Final Approach Restaurant is actually in the tiny terminal for Qualicum Beach Airport. The chefs make everything from scratch and the flavors prove that out. We had a stuffed chicken breast with a spinach inside and goat cheese on top... More

Recently moved to this area and when we asked around for recommendations for restaurants Final Approach was always mentioned. Tucked inside the small terminal is the restaurant. Reservations are recommended because there is limited sitting and it's very popular. Wonderful atmosphere, great service and the food is excellent. We started with calamari which were fresh and succulent. My husband had... More
