Last night we met a group of our old boating friends for dinner at The FINAL APPROACH, located at the Qualicum Beach Airport. We were a group of 14 seated at two adjacent tables. Large group dinners always concern me because it often poses a challenge for the serving staff. But not this staff. The order taking, delivery of food and presenting the tab was all done very efficiently.
I had previously enjoyed breakfast and lunch at Final Approach but this was the first stab at dinner. The menu includes some inviting appetizers, salads and some mains including Fish & Chips. But, on Sunday night the DINNER SPECIAL is Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding, mashed potatoes, vegetables and gravy. And it included soup or salad, and Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. The soup was a surprise as I was not expecting Clam Chowder. It was the best I’ve had in some time. I love Clam Chowder and would go back just for another bowl.
The entree arrived with a generous portion of medium cooked, tender roast beef and a Yorkshire the size of a cantaloupe. Perfect mashed potatoes and an nice assortment of vegetables. Delicious and a generous serving. Only $25 including the tasty Sticky Pudding served with ice cream. My favourite girl chose a wonderful looking green salad and Sambuca Prawns. Here are our entrees.
Our table partners choices included well executed Caesar Salads and a large portion of Mussels in a wine & garlic sauce. They pronounced them ‘ delicious’. At the other table there were several orders of Fish & Chips that looked very good and they disappeared quickly.
Everyone was very satisfied with the food including us and we will go back for sure. Next time though, it will be Crab Cakes for her and Mussels for me with a couple of glasses of Wine O Clock Pinot Grigio.
Final Approach serves up excellent food at reasonable prices and includes friendly efficient service too. Check out their menu here; http://finalapproachrestaurant.ca/menu/
It’s a small restaurant so reservations are recommended. They are open 7 days a week. Call them at 250-752-8966.
The restaurant does have a view of the airport but in the dark, not so much.
