We have now been back to the Olive and Anchor several times as it has become a favourite of many in the group. Reasonable prices, nice ambiance and... More

I have eaten at this place a number of times. It always performs well above par. The food is great, especially the fresh tuna salad, the servers are all amazing friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is one of a pub that truely has great food.

First--I want to complain that this place is listed under "West Vancouver" (It is in Horseshoe Bay, which is, I guess, part of West Van. but you'll have a hard time finding it there). We had a really nice lunch while waiting for the Ferry. We cozied up to the fireplace. We both chose Chicken Pot Pie which was filled... More

We stopped here on our way home to Parksville after the Boat Show in Vancouver. The atmosphere was great, lots of people and everyone was enjoying themselves. Service - Excellent. When our food came it was presented wonderfully. I had Seafood Risotto and my husband had Seafood Thai Curry. Very flavorful and good to the last mouthful! For value -... More
