Very underwhelming entrance, almost left, but walking to the back, it turns quite nice with a lovely dining room with great views. The menu is limited but good quality and generous portions. Staff is wonderful and enthusiastically recommended their best menu items. I'll be back for sure.
We made a last minute reservation this morning for lunch as this was our first visit to The Malahat Chalet. Service, food, and view were 10/10. It?s a long weekend so they were unfortunately out of a couple of their popular items but I can promise that the halibut and fries are superb. My husband had a burger and says it was great. They noted his allergy and he felt well taken care of. We were even offered a sample of one of their pizzas and it was delicious. No room for dessert but maybe next time! I think that we have found our next ?go to? spot!
We loved eating here. The atmosphere was so nice, the staff were amazing, and the food was tasty. When something wasn't done correctly they fixed it and were really nice about it. We definitely want to go back. :)
Astonishing view even though it was foggy when I visited. Great portion of the food at a reasonable price. The waitress was nice and friendly too! I will definitely be back in summertime.
This place has changed up multiple times since I started coming here as a young kid, but I have loved it every time I have been. Great menu (fish and chips has been my favorite for the past 12 years), great staff, and an unbeatable view. Never been disappointed by service or food once and have eaten here countless times as my parents live close by ?
I eat out regularly and the Malahat Chalet is one of my go to places. So much so that I have gotten to know the staff on a personal level. I must say there clam chowder is the best I have ever had. I compare all others chowders to theirs. Either way I came in later in the evening one night and things were starting to shut down. John was not going to let that stop my culinary experience from happening. He plated up some food and it was delivered with so much pride, and within my visit, john, the head chef, and of course the fabulous server Laura all came by and had a personal chat. It is wonderful when you get great food combined with a wonderful personal experience. The first dish is the new sable fish appetizer.
FYI I eat out alot! I've eaten all over the world Eating out is one of my hobbies out here on vancouver island and I've eaten at the Chalet many times. There is a new chef and new menu. everything was amazing and everyone at the table LOVED their food. The Barley Risotto was one of the best meals I've had (sorry no photo of that one) on top of the great food we enjoyed a wonderful view of the inlet.
Large portions, the menu has so much to offer. salad popping with flavor, Halibut in the beer batter was perfectly cooked, lots to offer the vegatarian. Great friendly staff, also having the dog allowed on the patio was a huge bonus not to have concerns while enjoying the stunning views and good food.
