Both our Manor Dining Room and casual Bistro provide provide superb culinary experiences that should not be missed. Led by Swiss Executive Chef, Marcel Kauer, our wonderful kitchen team never fails to delight the palate while also providing a feast for the eyes with their exquisite presentations of each course.
The Manor Dining Room features a table d’hôte menu with multiple options, including vegetarian choices, for each of the 3 courses. Attire is smart-casual and reservations are required. Year after year, the Manor Dining Room is honoured with a well-deserved 4-Diamond rating and is the place to go for any celebration, special occasion, or any time you just wish to have a wonderful dining experience and enjoy a memorable evening of fine dining, fine wine, and fine service.
Manor fine dining is open every evening, although the hours of operation vary slightly depending on the season. In the summer, seating times are available between 5:30 PM and 8 PM, with slightly reduced hours during the Spring and Autumn. Seating is limited and to avoid missing this wonderful experience, we suggest making reservations well in advance of your desired date, especially during the busy summer months.
The Bistro provides a more casual ambience and features an à la carte menu. Our Verandah, adjacent to the Manor House, provides the ideal venue for our Bistro and affords inspiring views of Ganges Harbour.
The evening hours of operation for the Bistro are the same as for the Manor Dining Room, although the Bistro also provides lunch service with seating between the hours of 11:30 AM and 12:45 PM. To avoid disappointment, reservations are encouraged, especially for dinner service.
Each of these restaurants have their own distinctive charm and both feature the freshest cuisine with produce from our own gardens that is often harvested just a few hours before cooking. All the flowers, berries, and vegetables from our extensive gardens are non-GMO and are grown without the use of any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We have an impressive wine list featuring fine European wines and a selection of our favourites from some of the award-winning wineries of British Columbia.
We hope you will join us and experience the finest culinary offerings of the Southern Gulf Islands. Bon appetit!

“Best cooking in the Gulf Islands” 5 stars. We had two dinners here this summer (it’s a regular stop for us on our summer sailing cruise): one in the newish bistro side and one in the fine dining room. Both were excellent meals with attentive and knowledgeable staff. Beautiful setting with the postcard perfect view of Ganges harbor.
