This is an excellent restaurant located at the local Qualicum Beach airport. The food is very good and the service is excellent. I recommend making a reservation as seating is limited and restaurant is always full.

This restaurant is located at the Qualicum Beach airport. The food is fresh and well presented. The restaurant looks over the runway - interesting comings and goings. The restaurant is small, so reservation for lunch is a good idea.

We were looking to try a new place and had heard good things about Final Approach so we dropped by for lunch and were seated at a nice table by the window. The restaurant is smallish but feels comfortable and spacious and there are lots of windows overlooking the runways so you can watch the small plane traffic. Our server... More

This was our 3rd time at the Final Approach for lunch and always enjoy it. I had ordered the steak sandwich medium rare but it arrived as a medium which might have been a problem but it was still very tender and tasty so when our waiter offered to replace it with a new steak I refused. I really was... More

Four of us dropped in predominantly for the seafood chowder. The chowder was excellent; hot, and good portion. The bread accompanying it was not: doughy on the inside and tough crust. Steak sandwich was OK except for the bread. Lemonade not available. Crab cakes were good. Service was fast, effective and friendly. Comfort was fine. Noise level is good. Lots... More

We went to Qualicum for a day of Christmas shopping, to check out an artisan bakery that we heard about & to try out the Final Approach Restaurant that friends had mentioned. The small restaurant is situated at Qualicum airport. We were greeted at the door & given the only table that had not been reserved. I ordered the New... More

If you fly in/out of this airport this restaurant is right there. If not flying the ten minute drive from Parksville is worth it. Very nice folks run/own this place. Food is very good and won't break the bank. Go ahead and enjoy!

This restaurant is on the "smaller" size; reservations strongly recommended as it is well patronized. Patio seating in warmer months allows more seating
