Relaxed and delicious dinner in Horseshoe Bay. Had the tuna salad. Generous serving and excellent fresh tuna, tasty dressing. Family atmosphere. Recommended.

If you are in Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, go try Olive & Anchor...The menu has something for everyone...Due to illness, I have changed over to a Vegan Diet, but I can still have a veggie bowl with brown rice...Before I had to follow a Vegan Diet, I used to order the KFC Wings! Unbelievable! So yummy...The Thai Curry is... More

In need of a place for lunch we stopped at Horseshoe Bay and went directly to Trolls. Being noon-hour there was a line-up for the outside and inside tables and the smell of fried food dissuade us from going in. Looking for an alternative we discover the Olive & Anchor just twenty meters away. There was room in their patio,... More

We had lunch here and were blown away by the food. The tomato gin soup.. oh WOW was it ever delicious. The seafood linguine was some of the best we have had, and no scrimping on the seafood either. We finished off our lunch with the mango lime cheesecake and were tempted to order seconds and then thirds, it was... More

Once again the food was delicious and servers efficient and friendly. Forget Trolls, fill up here. We had seafood pasta special and the smoked salmon flatbread. Yummy.

I can't believe with this restaurant, I don't really often to go to this restaurant. But whenever I come here they always get more and more busy than before. I was there on Sunday night and this place already full. I have amazingly great " seafood Thai curry" and it was delicious...

We were driving from Whistler to Vancouver and wanted to stop for lunch. As luck would have it, we took the exit off Rt 99 for BC ferries. The area was crowded because it was a sunny Sunday in June. The restaurant was noisy but.... we found lovely Horseshoe Bay and this nice restaurant. We had the Dungesness crab sandwich... More

Poor choice for a small group that wants to talk .. very noisy with people and TV screens on. Chowder was lukewarm and food mediocre. Service prompt .It was so good to get outside after. It was full though with what must have been tourists to Horseshoe Bay. .

A hidden gem. Had a great lunch, Try the "hoggydog" or the fish and chips. Both were excellent. Fries were crisp and hot. Service was attentive and prompt. Decent selection of craft beers.Definitely worth another visit despite the fact that it is a bit out of the way. Great if you are early for a ferry or just getting off... More
