Dinner in the restaurant was a big disappointment. I ordered a chicken Ceasar salad which came with a raw egg. The salad was coated in oily parmesan cheese. It was perhaps the worst chicken Ceasar salad I have ever ordered to be perfectly honest. My partner ordered mussels which were not great either, quite a few of the shells were closed and they were quite tasteless.
The only part of the dinner which was good was the dessert, the saving grace.
Unfortunately, the $28 packed lunch we ordered for the next day's hike was also pretty bad - a sandwich with a slice of cheese, lettuce, tomato, and an inedible orange.
We also noticed a lot of flies in the restaurant and bar... really gross when you're trying to have dinner/drinks.
Overall, the staff were really friendly and welcoming so this was nice, but it's a shame that such an amazing location has such low-grade food... it was the last place we stayed at on the queen charlotte track, and it would have been good to finish it with a good impression.
I hope The Portage take this review on board and try to improve - other guests we were walking with were in complete agreement that the food was way below average, and definitely not worth the high prices.
