What did I eat?

Tomato Gazpacho with Ice Shrimp and Vanilla Oil

  • I love gazpacho and this was a refreshing and light way to start the meal
  • There were a lot of shrimp in the gazpacho so you got one in each mouthful

BC Dungeness Crab Cake with Mango Salsa and Chipotle Aioli

  • The crab cakes were very meaty and consisted mostly of crab with no filler
  • I liked the sweetness of the mango salsa with the crab meat, but I found the chipotle aioli to overwhelm the delicate crab flavour

Kale and Quinoa Salad with Organic Wheat Kernels, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Cranberries, and Spiced Almond Dressing

  • I really liked this salad because I like the heartiness that quinoa adds and I like kale as a base for salads
  • There was a diverse mix of textures ranging from the crunchy seeds to the sweet cranberries

Grilled Tenderloin of Alberta beef with Nova Scotia Lobster, Scallop, Asparagus and a Maltaise Sauce

  • The tenderloin was cooked just how I liked it and came out rare, juicy, and very tender
  • Everything on this plate was good and all the flavours worked well together. You can’t go wrong with lobster and steak.

S’mores, Creme Brûlée, and Tiramisu

  • My favourite of the desserts was the little pot of s’mores. It had a rich chocolate flavour and was topped with velvety toasted marshmallows.
  • I liked the cute added touch of the cinnamon bear cookie on the creme brûlée

Disclosure: I did not pay for my meal.

Final Thoughts?

The food at Cinnamon Bear Bar and Grille was good and I left satisfied. They aim to be a comfortable restaurant and I think they do a good job at executing classic dishes well that would appeal to a wide range of visitors at the hotel.
