Hello sweet people!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday so far! I have an awesome restaurant review that I wanted to share with you today.
Point no Point Resort is a gorgeous west coast style retreat situated about 45 minutes outside of Victoria, BC. It’s actually only 25 km (16 miles) outside of the town of Sooke, if anyone happens to know where that is! The resort features 25 beautiful cabins perched on the side of a cliff that overlook the Pacific.
Each cabin is kind of decorated in it’s own style but they all have that cozy west coast log cabin feel and breathtaking ocean views. It’s the perfect place for a romantic getaway!
I sound like an infomercial but I just really, really, like this place.
We didn’t stay at the resort this time but we DID eat at their fab restaurant. We stopped there once on the way back from our camping trip and since then we have decided to make it a yearly trip.
First of all I just want to show you the view from our table because it was just gosh darn ridiculous.
Eating lunch with this view? Just bananas.
And one more…
The best part is, the view doesn’t overshadow the food!
When you walk into the restaurant it almost seems like you’re in someones living room. they have a fireplace and a couch and it seems slightly dark, though totally quaint. Then you’re led out into one of two sun rooms. Both rooms have beautiful views, no matter what table you are seated at. The dining area is so bright and airy I couldn’t even handle it. I’m a big fan of bright and airy.
I also want to make a point of saying that they do an amazing job of keeping this place neat and tidy, the buildings are on the old side but they keep them in amazing shape and everything is clean as a whistle. I am the type of person to look around and see if the floors are dirty, or the bathroom needs cleaning and I could honestly not say anything negative about this place in that aspect.
Okay, on to the most important part, the food!
We we’re just there for lunch and I wasn’t starving so I passed on an appetizer. Mr. Delish ordered a bowl of their Creamy Seafood Chowder ($7) and of course I’m a ding dong and didn’t get a photo of it. It was thick and creamy and loaded with seafood and fresh veggies. It also came with a little bread basket. The waitress was so kind to offer an extra spoon so I could get in on some of the chowder. I think he was shooting her the evil eye after that one (jokes!) It was super tasty and I believe they have the chowder on the menu every day and they also switch up a soup of the day (tomato and roasted chickpea on the day we were there.)
Then we ordered our mains! Mr. Delish decided on the “Confit of Chicken Leg” ($15) which was served on top of greens along with confit of tomato, basil and mozzarella.
It was delicious. The chicken was cooked perfectly, crisp skin and fall off the bone meat. The tomato, basil, mozzarella concoction was delicious. He ended up pulling the chicken off the bone and mixing it all together like a salad. It was more than enough for him to eat and he thoroughly enjoyed it.
Then for my main, I ordered the “Marinated BC Salmon” ($15) which was also served on a bed of fresh greens along with Israeli cous cous, pickled beets, shallots and an orange vinaigrette.
I would give my left arm to have this magically appear on my desk right now. Seriously.
The salmon was cooked perfectly, flaky but juicy and tender, and super flavorful. The cous cous and beets were an awesome combination and I am going to try make something like it at home. Dang good is what that is.
We finished off our lunch with tea and we just had to order a creme brulee ($7), which we ordered before when we were there and we loved it! I can honestly say this is one of the few places that makes a proper creme brulee. Of course I
ate it before I remembered forgot to take a photo.
Just a note: the menu online which can be found HERE is possibly outdated. It seems like they have a lot of similar dishes but they switch it up with more seasonal ingredients.
All in all, this place is fantastic and I think you all would love it to bits! So if you ever find yourself on Vancouver island, please, pullleaaseee check it out!
