Ok so I admit the main reason we came was becasue it enabled us to get free admission to the park but hey at $30 per person half od our meal was paid for.You need to make a reservation early for the Observatory and even earlier if you want a table by the front window. Get here early and you can enjoy the park ad attractions before your meal.

The food here is superb and I was very surprised just how good everything was. It's very much west coast food so expect Salmon and all the usuals on the menu. The wine list is very much provincial and as we were just back from the Okanaga there were lots of familiar varieties. The service is enthusiastic and the dining room is quite cosy with only a few tables.

We went up on a cloudy day so we intend to do a return trip when we can actually see something out of the window. You really do pay for the location but the food is very good so you shouldn't feel too hard done by if you catch the rain or the clouds.
