We look forward to welcoming you to our oceanside restaurant, where our menus are inspired by the seasons of west coast British Columbia.

We understand that dietary preferences and restrictions are important considerations, and we want to provide you with the most accurate information.

Our retreat center currently faces limitations in accommodating complex diets due to various logistical and resource constraints. While we strive to offer a nourishing and enjoyable experience for all participants, we may not be equipped to meet highly specific dietary requirements.

We want to be transparent about our capabilities to ensure that your stay with us is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If you have any specific concerns or questions about our current offerings, we’d be happy to discuss them further and explore potential alternatives. Please call us at 1-800-933-6339 at the time of booking to discuss your options.

If you have a severe dietary allergy that requires you to carry an EpiPen®, please call us at 1-800-933-6339 at the time of booking to discuss your options.

If you have complex dietary requirements or food intolerance(s), please call us at 1-800-933-6339 at the time of booking to discuss your options.

We can provide gluten free options but do not have a celiac kitchen. Although we do our best to avoid it, some cross contamination may be present. Please call us at 1-800-933-6339 at the time of booking to discuss your options.

Meals are served banquet style. In addition to the plated main meal the salad bar is provided at lunch and dinner. Breakfast generally includes eggs, toast station, fruit/yogurt and granola bar.

In our post covid world, we now serve plated meals. Similar to at a wedding, you select your meal plan when you register. Our hosts will bring your plate to your table. Ensure you have picked up your flower from the host stand if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies. We continue to encourage our guests to bus their own dirty dishes.
