This is a great little place overlooking the marina in West Vancouver! The atmosphere is relaxed and the food options are plentiful. It has several seafood options and some Asian influence. The oysters are delicious and fresh and so is the seafood stew!

they serve high quality "basics" for all tastes and appetites. Staff are super nice. The indoor / outdoor seating arrangements right at the waterfront are great. Cost is very reasonable, in short a good place with great service

This is a family owned restaurant, mainly fish dishes, with a little Korean influence. The prices are reasonable, service is friendly and good, and the food is consistently excellent. I have been many times, and never been disappointed.

This is the new name for Ya Ya's Oyster Bar which we loved. In it's new incarnation it's trying to be a restaurant but is still a bar which uses the same old 24' x24" tables jammed in so tight that one has to slide sideways to get seated, and with it's low ceiling has a noise level of a... More

There were six of us that stopped by here on our way up the Sea to Sky coast. It was a fortunate choice. There are not many breakfast choices. We tried most of them and all were great. The view and leisurely atmosphere was perfect. I could see stopping by here after work to relax, have a cocktail and eat.... More

This is situated on the front street that over looks the bay & marina. The food & service was good, we ate at 6.45pm & did not need to make a reservation.

I ordered the Calamari which was very good but they sprinkled them with... More

A little more expensive than expected for lunch, it was $17.00+ tax/tip for a one piece of average fish and chips. We sat on the patio, as it was a nice day but we probably won't go back.

Located in Horseshoe Bay, walking distance from the ferry terminal this pub/restaurant never disappoints. I have eaten many times here and the food is always good. There are a number of tap beers on draught. I would recommend the Chicken Hotpot Pie and the soup of the day is always good.
