During a walk through the Gas Town area, a friend I decided to stop in at the Flying Pig, as we had heard positive reviews in the past. The décor was nothing special, but the atmosphere was welcoming and the establishment was fairly busy – usually a good sign. I had a hard time deciding on what I wanted to... More

I had higher expectations after enjoying their appy-hour some months ago. My brunch was a mediocre croque accompanied with a very small portion of salad. Our waiter failed to tell us about any of the specials, which we could not see from our table. And I couldn't believe how much they charged for my tea. Nice atmosphere but I left... More

A very good restaurant in Gas Town with hearty fare and good staff. I sat at the bar to eat and both staff and other patrons were very friendly. A good selection of beers as well

Overall very good. The service is great. The food is mostly great. The atmosphere was great. We had the beet salad which was great, we had the halibut which was great. We had the signature pork ribs which was a little disappointing due to the dryness of the meat. Hope our next visit will be better.

Stopped by for drinks and an appy on sat afternoon. Nice drinks and snacks. But we came in at 550pm and they said that happy hour prices were not available even though the advert said 6pm cut off. Not cool!

Six of us on a long vacation trip ended up in Vancouver. When asking at our hotel about a decent restaurant, we were told of the Flying Pig. We were not disapointed, we had a selection of starters including the Brussel sprouts, and they were delicious. The piece de resistance was the pork (a special from the board) it was... More

Went here on a recommendation from a friend from Toronto and we weren't disappointed. The good was fantastic, the ambience was great. It was a Tuesday night about 8.00 pm and we were seated straight away (no reservation needed). We started with the meat and cheese platter to share which was great and just the right size to not be... More

Simple but nice place with view of the street. Was there for dinner after reading about it. Was a real let down. The wine I had by the glass was pretty good and the services of the person who waited over us was good. The crispy Brussels sprouts that I had was really greasy and my husband and son were... More

Went in with high hopes and came back disappointed. The rubbed skirt steak was buried in a huge heap of unnecessary fries, the crispy Brussels sprouts were oily and tasteless, the beef short rib looked so unappetising with a massive bone that looked like a weapon and the blackened steelhead trout had a fishy smell that you normally don't find...
