“Good Gastown restaurant.”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Enjoyed our meal here although our steak and salmon special was slightly overcooked. We ordered med. rare steak but it was nearer to medium, having said that it was very tasty and tender. The salmon also was good but again slightly overcooked which made it a little dry. Service was friendly and attentive and drinks reasonably priced . Overall a reasonable meal in a nice setting overlooking one of the main streets in Gastown.

“Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We found the Flying Pig while looking for a nice place to have some beer and a snack in Gastown and just by looking through the front windows at the plates of guests we decided that this was our kind of place. We happened to come by during happy hour which is between 3 and 5 pm and the restaurant was quite full. House Beer and House Wine at 4 $ a glass and certain snacks at 5 $. The chili wrapped steak with matchstick fries were absolutely wonderful, beetroot and bresaola salad with rocket, mozarella and an amazing dressing that had a hint of mint in it was delicious and the salmon sample platter was so great that I can't find words for it!. Yum! And don't forget that each snack was 5-6$ only!!! Of course prices go up for regular lunch or dinner but we are definitely going back.

“Great evening, great waiter”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Took pot luck in here, as the place we had wanted to go was full, but had a great evening. Food was good, if filling, couldn't do justice to it all but it was the waiter who made the difference, great banter, bit of a laugh and excellent service.
