We are here a couple of times while touring Quadra (lunch and breakfast with a larger group). They have great food and excellent service.

Lovely food, and lovely friendly staff, nice views as well, Quadra island lacks good places to eat during the evenings and we found this place to be a gem!

I have been to Heriot Bay and to the restaurant several times over the past 10 years My daughter had her wedding there and we were very pleasantly surprised at how great our experience was. The food is always wonderful mostly local fare and I would recommend the seafood dishes It is not expensive and very quiet atmosphere

We ate in the tavern side of this pleasantly funky Inn. The staff was very warm and welcoming. The food was good and the prices reasonable. The fine dining side is a bit more expensive with a lovely dining room and outdoor seating as well. We enjoyed our meal and the surroundings.

We enjoy going to this restaurant to meet friends over a wonderfully prepared meal. The restaurant is not noisy, so that you are able to have a conversation easily with friends.

My wife and I were visiting friends on Quadra, the night we arrived we went to the Heriot Bay Inn for dinner, unfortunately the pub was very busy so we ate at Heron's instead.

Serendipity: noun: the gift of finding valuable or agreeable things not looked for. We were on our way to Cortes Island and had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours waiting for the ferry in Heriot Bay.

The improvements in the food provided here has been considerable. As well as the pub fare there is a limited menu of well prepared and presented food well worth the prices charged. Service was excellent
