We had a wonderful and leisurely celebration dinner with family. The entire evening was wonderful starting with a complimentary bottle of wine. The restaurant is upscale casual and the menu options are limited but all very good with a range of options. I ordered the...More

Aurora is the elegant, main dining room at Poet's Cove Resort. Whoever designed this complex knew exactly what they were doing and the restaurant is no exception. Decorated in soft grey with white trim and featuring both a beautiful ocean view deck and panoramic views...More

Meh. First day both of us had waffles but they were cold. No burners under food. 2nd morning, pancakes were just warm but heavy. Disappointing.

We have a romantic dinner with a great view and the Friday night music was perfect! What a nice way to unwind at the end of the day. Service was excellent and the food well thought out.

Great local food prepared with care. Our party had the duck, vegetarian option (type of semolina dish with goats cheese), and steelhead trout. All fantastically prepared. Dessert less so but still excellent.

We dined at Aurora on Day Two of their seasonal opening and were very impressed with the high quality of the menu, the cooking, and the service. We'd put Aurora in the same category with Hastings House (Ganges on Saltspring), the Bird Cage (Nanaimo), and...More
