Thoroughly enjoyed this neighbourhood restuarant in Horseshoe Bay, BC. Active, good kitchen and great service. Prices are reasonable; great place for a meal during the fall and winter months.

I have had the pleasure of eating here many times over the years and I will say that every aspect of the dining experience has been great. The young owners are affable, dedicated and a credit to their industry. Lisa, the wife, runs the kitchen and Rick, the husband, directs the front end. The food is consistently good, well presented...

Food is fresh and well prepared. The service is good too-just a bit too noisy!!! I guess that is because it has become so popular,,!best oysters in town!

Olive and Anchor is the best place in Horseshoe Bay for casual/casual fine dining. Menu recommendations are their KFC (Korean fried chicken) wings (recently mentioned in Vancouver Magazine as one of 25 tastes to try in Vancouver); the smoked salmon flatbread; ahi tuna salad. Always a dependable, quality restaurant.

Horseshoe Bay is one of my favourite places to visit so was quite happy when we decided last year to moor our boat in the Bay. And now that we are moored in Horseshoe Bay, we have had the wonderful opportunity of sampling the several very good restaurants facing the Bay. We've dined at the Olive and Anchor more often...

Absolutely brilliant. Doesn't matter what you order. Fusion food at its best . Always a superb meal whether it is the Tomato & Gin soup,, or a fusion salad, or fish and chips. Service is always fantastic, and they usually have the sliding glass open to the street, so there is a very open feel if you eat at the... More

Four of us, all food arrived at different times. However, the salads were excellent. My oysters were the smallest ever, but delicious. The salmon on flatbread was excellent. A pity the service is not as good as the food.

Horseshoe Bay area has a wonderful feel about it. Great street scape, lots of choice and great scenery is a bonus too. Settled on the Olive & Anchor for dinner with colleagues. Food was great and the fish and chips looked really good - nice light crispy golden batter and the portions are generous without being obscene. The specials and... More
