We were staying on our boat at the marina so we made a reservation for dinner. It was busy with a special party going on. We were seated promptly. That is where the service ended. We ordered a full litre of wine, received half a liter. Was only charged for half so that was fine. Then we sat and watched... More

The seafood Chowder was delicious. Our kids really enjoyed the chicken drumsticks. The servers were very kind and welcoming. We really enjoyed eating outside until the wasps decided to join us. We have one child very afraid. Regardless we enjoyed our meal very much.

We had been sailing all day from Comox and came into the marina for the night. This was the only option to eating on board so we were tired and went for it. We were in the marina to the south so we had to hike 15 minutes through the woods to get to the restaurant but it was well... More

Had a fantastic lunch here. Sat out on the deck, shared a pitcher of bee and ate the best fish tacos I've ever had. Great value. Really recommend this place.

5 of us (including one child so we couldn't eat in the cute pub area) had dinner here last Sunday and all enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is in an adjacent room to the pub and, in past summers the wait staff often forgot we were there, so it was a pleasant surprise this time to receive good service. We'll... More

The Restaurant at Silva Bay has undergone a dramatic transformation. Operated now by the owners of Robert's Place, another Gabriola restaurant, the Silva Bay location boasts an outstanding, consistently good west-coast menu, and excellent service. The deck is beautiful and well appointed. Most evenings, you'll find live music in the dining room and the place has an overall feeling and... More

Walking in and being met with the role of the eyes was not a good start. 10 minutes to get a beer and three times that for the food. Shame, nice views!!

The setting is terrific here, overlooking the marina. If the weather is good, it is a great place to while away an hour or more. The food was very average - too bad.

Lovely views from the dining deck. Food was very good. I highly recommend the seafood chowder. A lovely spot to dine or just have a beer on a sunny day.
