Reliably friendly servers weave throughout Bird of Paradise Pub's airy lodge, whose large windows offer panoramic views of surrounding greenery while welcoming in sunlight to warm diners' shoulders. The pub inhabits the renovated 1914 Royal Oak farmhouse, and its rustic charm multiplies when staffers light up the wood-burning fireplace each night or pour fresh oatmeal into the tropical marine-reef aquarium each morning.
Sandy earth tones, noble cacti, and terracotta accents allude to the restaurant's menu—a collection of dishes inspired by the American Southwest. Pub favourites include nachos, burgers, chili, and pizzas, plus thick-cut french toast and chilaquiles rancheros during Sunday brunch. On Saturday nights, live music encourages patrons to dance off bubbles that have accumulated on their tongues after fresh brews from the bar.
