Trolls is the landmark restaurant in Departure Bay. Over the years Trolls has mastered the delivery of quality and consistent fish & chips to a high volume of dinners waiting for the ferry. I have eaten here several times over the years, and not much has changed at Trolls. (one might say if it is not broken, why change it).... More

Whenever I am in Vancouver I try to go to Troll's for fish and chips. The drive is beautiful which is all part of the experience. The chips were good but not plentiful for the price. The fish however was disappointing. Garlic and other seasonings have been added to the batter which is now overpowering the delicate flavour of the... More

Living in North Vancouver, we were seeking somewhere different to go for lunch. We decided to drive out to Trolls in Horseshoe Bay. As always, Trolls did not disappoint. They're a friendly, neighbourhood family restaurant. Many groups enjoy lunch there. We ordered the seafood clubhouse sandwich, and the crabcake appetizer. Both were excellent! Service at Trolls also is reliable. Friendly... More

We took a drive to Horseshoe Bay (about a 40 min. drive) to drop off a family member at the ferry. When we were asked to do this ~ we didn't hesitate, as we looked forward to having a meal at Troll's. We have always enjoyed our meals there in the past ~ especially the chowder. However, this was not... More

When we visit Vancouver, we often take a drive to Horseshoe Bay to enjoy fish and chips at Troll's. It has become a family tradition and never disappoints!

Great spot. Have eaten here a few times. The portobello mushroom burger is the best veggie burger ever!

This was a low key outing to Horseshoe Bay after exploring between Vancouver and Burnaby! Our lunch stop was impromptu and left us feeling well taken care of. The chowder was fabulous, hot and hearty. The fish and chips were good and wonderful with French fries. Solid food and service!

We took a trip to BC recently and had lunch at Trolls, at the Horseshoe Bay ferry landing. Great spot for lunch! The food was fine, nothing special, but fine as a casual lunch in a great location. The location on the waterfront, the boats and so on was fantastic. It's casual, which is appropriate for the area. Nice drive... More
