Great sunset setting, food OK

We decided to try this Salt Spring institution one night for dinner. It was so highly spoken of by many locals. We had excellent seats (hint: only sit outside) and the sun was just going down. Great view, real BC west coast atmosphere. We ordered halibut fish and chips. They use a light batter and... read more

Loved the halibut and chips. Caesar salad great too. Appreciated that you could get half fries and half salad. We saved room for dessert that was good too. Go for sunset as it's beautiful from here! Server was nice and friendly.

After being recommended by family and friends and having good reviews on TripAdvisor, a group of us went for fish and chips on May 4. Some ordered cod and some halibut . The server was awesome and the atmosphere good. But when the food arrived, every ones food was seriously over cooked. Both the fish and the chips were hard... More

Had fish & chips - above average with a different coleslaw (still can't decide if liked it!) Friendly staff & lovely view of Vesuvius harbour. Great stop if coming off or waiting for ferry to Crofton.

Everytime my wife and I visit Saltspring, Seaside Restaurant is on our list of must visit places. They serve the best calamari that I've ever had and we order it each time we visit. Their Caesar salad is fresh and delicious with real shaved cheese on top. The halibut and chips were excellent - the halibut was cooked perfectly. It... More

Ever since living in Alaska, I have been a Fish snob. Catching halibut and Copper river salmon is fishing / eating at its best. This halibut was the freshest I had tasted in a long time. Perfectly lightly fried in a little coating. We also had a great Salt Spring Island Pinot Gris wine with it. In addition we ran... More

My family used to vacation on Saltspring in the '70s and '80s so it was nice to see the Seaside Kitchen still around when I went back to Saltspring in 2014. Very friendly and obliging staff and STILL the best fish and chips! Sit near the window in the upper room if you can, so you can watch the ferries... More

A bleak early January afternoon was brightened considerably by our visit to the Seaside Kitchen. The interior of the place is unassuming, simple tables and chairs and built on a hill, there are several stairs between different levels to which you descend from the front door. The overwhelming thing however is the view. Elevated a bit above the beach, you... More

Seaside Kitchen is a lovely place to eat and to enjoy the ambience of SSI. Simple and unpretentious, it relies in the quality of its food, the excellence of its service, and the amazing view to attract patrons. We are SSI residents, and we love this place. The Seaside Creation salad is amazing, and the fish and chips are terrific.... More
