This little restaurant is quaint and charming. The service is fantastic with very friendly hostesses and waitresses. The food is adorable and you are given large portions. The menu is varied and offers everything you could want including fresh seafood.
The bread pudding dessert was super delicious. I will definitely be back its the best casual restaurant in west vancouver and most definitely the best in horseshoe bay. Its leaps and bounds better than nearby Troll's.

I was looking for a quick bite before catching the ferry and stopped here. I thought the service and the food was very good and if I lived in Horseshoe Bay it would be a regular stop. As it is, I will plan on stopping here many more times as I wait for the return trip to the Island. Sure beats BC Ferry food!

Who would have thought this place in Horseshoe Bay BC would serve up such great food. Love their Thai Chicken Tikka and they always have something the kids will love. Now becoming a regular!!

We are so thankful that our daughter chose the Olive and Anchor for our family lunch to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday, August 18th. We live on the island and our daughter in Coquitlam so all of us meeting at Horseshoe Bay was great. Reservations were made, and we know that we had the best table in the house!!! We all shared the Ebi Mayo and Calamari. Both so very delicious. Calamari was prepared Mmmm delicious!!! All seven of us, ordered something different and all of us, loved, enjoyed what we ordered. Loved the salad and the dressing too. Everything so beautifully prepared.
Our birthday girl was served a special cake with wishes for a Happy Birthday!

We were greeted so warmly, service was very prompt and always with a smile. Food was excellent. Service was excellent! Will definitely be looking forward to our next visit at Olive and Anchor!

Our son was coming in from Toronto to Vancouver and we live on Vancouver Island - so we decided to meet "half way" so to speak. I saw The Olive and Anchor on Trip Advisor and we decided to meet there. Very happy we did - the service was excellent (they even held our reservation as the ferry came in late), food selection was varied and interesting, and the food and presentation were extremely good. The ambience was delightful and we never felt rushed.
Excellent visit.
