I recently celebrated a milestone birthday with family at this unique seaside restaurant with a custom pre-set menu, including wine pairing. The experience was extraordinary with great menu originality, quality, presentation and service. The Chef and staff are to be highly commended.

The Breakwater Restaurant is great. The food and presentation is fantastic and the views are super nice. The staff is very polite and attentive. We had the Seared Tuna Loin and the pan-fried Steelhead Salmon. Both were fantastic and one of the best we had. The only negative we can say, is that we did not get a window seat... More

We love the restaurant at the Kingfisher Resort because we live near by, and the food is always top notch. The view is also amazing! Brunch is yummy, the eggs benny is great! We often go for yoga, the pool, then lunch with friends.

I had buffet meals with our group, and two on my own. The group meals were really interesting this year: lots of fresh fruit and vegetables; hot entrees were interesting and innovative. For a buffet, imagine. If your appetite is for something light, have the pan-seared scallops.

My wife and I had a long day driving from Victoria to Campbell River and heading back to Bowser. We were tired and very hungry and decided to stop at the next place along 19a. We turned in to the Kingfisher Resort and Spa . About 5 K south of Courtenay on 19a. We walked into the Breakwater restaurant on... More

Had lunch here with a few friends recently. Had made a reservation so had a window table & a great ocean view. This restaurant, resort & spa has a fantastic location.
