This WAS one of three really great restaurants on Mayne Island. Unfortunately, with the increasing ferry fares causing a decline in ridership, businesses are being forced to close. The resident population is not enough to sustain them.

We were very much looking forward to eating here after reading the reviews and checking out the menu. Very disappointed to find a sign on the door announcing the business was closed and up for lease.

The bison burger was a favorite, as well as the great beers on tap, the friendly service and the fun decor.

Its a tough job on the gulf islands to maintain a regular job let alone a restaurant! The Wild Fennel continues to improve and be creative in their menu. I like the friendly atmosphere and will continue to enjoy their fine dining creations!

Very original menu with lots of organic/eco-friendly options. Food is not great but definitely good. Certainly worth a visit. Service was a bit questionable, we were never offered refills on our drinks.

I would recommend eating here for lunch over dinner due to the simpleness of the lunch. The last few times I have eaten here for dinner I have unfortunately found the food to be much too rich and slightly salty. I have enjoyed the food, but just found it to be too much. What I do love, however, is the... More

I have eaten here a few times now and they never disappoint. Menu makes for a tough decision. For lunch it's the bison burger.

The Wild Fennel is located in the centre of Mayne Island, in a wee development of a few shops. The restaurant has some pretty wild/quirky/interesting/cool/odd original art on the walls, created by one of the co-owners. The artist served us, and he certainly didn't lack for personality! Lots of fun. Other than the art, the space doesn't have a ton... More

Having the owners serve you makes you feel like you're a friend over for a meal. Plus, the spot is decorated with original art done by the owners. The dishes use local ingredients, have lots of flavour, and you get a generous amount for your coin. They have an outside patio (if you can stand the hornets that plague the... More
