We stopped in Horseshoe Bay for lunch on our way back from Whistler. We were able to get a table out on the patio which was good timing on our part as the restaurant was quite busy. Both the service and our meals were exceptional. We shared the Ebi Mayo prawns for a starter and it was one on the... More

Forgo BC Ferry food and enjoy dinner on shore at Horseshoe Bay Park at the Olive & Anchor. You can sit on the outdoor terrace and even tie your doggie up outside.

Olive and Anchor is a terrific local spot for perfectly made fish tacos, fish and chips, salads, burgers, cioppino seafood stew, and classic salmon and cod main courses with an original twist. Prices are moderate. Atmosphere is casual and friendly. The chef trained at one of the most prestigious restaurants in Vancouver and her expertise shows.

We went to this local neighbourhood restaurant before boating and after hiking. We were hungry from the hike. We had the oyster burgers, fish tacos, hamburger, and the salad fresh tuna. All dishes were reported to be quite tasty. Service was good and helpful and attentive.

The staff here were the best part. It's a tough crowd those ferry passengers so I was surprised. The food is that of an average pub but the chowder was a cut above.
