We had a great spot on the patio overlooking the water. We had the fish and chips which was excellent! A glass of wine, good food and a gorgeous view of the sunset! Staff were friendly and such great ambiance! Loved it!!

Dinner with a view!!! I had tons of choices for where to go for dinner on my birthday & this is always the first place to come to mind especially if I've been away from the coast for a while. The cod here is the best. We started with calamari appies. The portion is generous for sharing. They're kind of... More

We returned for a visit to Salt Spring Island and decided to have dinner at the Seaside Kitchen. This place has always served consistently great meals. And the staff are great! Pauline, Dori and Carol seem to know all the customer's favourite meals and drinks and spend time chatting with the customers. They know everyone by name and treat them... More

We went on a Saturday night at prime time (7 pm). The place was hopping. We are thankful we had a reservation. One of us ordered mussels - they were fantastic. Another order the seafood curry - it was ok, but a bit sweet and not spicy enough. The portions are huge! The fish and chips seem very popular and... More

I had the fresh westcoast Halibut, fresh cut fries and a coleslaw salad with a glass of premium red wine for dinner then a chocolate tart with whipped cream. All with a gorgeous view of the sunset on the ocean and Vancouver island. Stall were very curtius and friendly. Reservations maybe helpful as it's not a big place, but seems... More

This is a quaint and delicious restaurant. The seafood is fresh and they know how to cook it! Located right next to the Vesuvius/Crofton ferry this is a must do stop while you are on Saltspring Island. Other options are available for non seafood eaters as well but if you love the good stuff you won't be disappointed. The staff... More

The inquiry into the fish and chips special was answered with a sharp tone, "we don't do all you can eat fish'n'chips anymore". Seaside kitchen has been renowned as an all you can eat fish and chips on Wednesdays for years. At least from what I've seen on the internet and heard from locals. She then made it seem that...

We must have got a temporary waitress because others on here have commended the service. Our friends from England and my wife and I ordered one cup of clam chowder and four fish and chips. Simple order. After 50 minutes none of our food had arrived. Meanwhile several tables which had arrived after us in an uncrowded restaurant had been... More

No pretence just excellent fish, cooked how you like it. The service is great and friendly. The views from the restaurant across the water to Victoria on a late summer evening are memorable. All in all, an experience not to be missed if you get the opportunity

Thank Dave5b
