“Great new choices”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Recently Silva Bay Restaurant/Pub reopened with a new owner, Robert and Partner from Robert's Place also on Gabriola. The menu is fresh and exciting. Unbelievable great service and some of the tastiest food. The beverage menu is very seasonally with a great selection of beer.

“Back in Business”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Up and running again, thank goodness for the Islanders and boating community. Robert has bravely ventured forth and added this location to his other restaurant on Gabriola Island, Robert's Place at the village. We ate lunch outside on the deck last week as a large group. Service was friendly, prompt and very good considering the crowd. I had halibut and chips - first class, halibut serving was generous, with crispy crust, as were the fries, with lots of cole slaw and delicious dip. The others' plates were such that we will return and try others on the menu, but I admit, it's hard for me to pass up fish and chips, especially the way the were done here!

“Great views”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

This restaurant is very busy and popular with the locals which is always a sign that the food will be good. It did not disappoint. I had the hamburger which was a combination of local island beef and pork which was moist and full of flavor. The service was friendly and quick.

“I would not pass by without stopping for some awesome food and drink in the sun.”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

I have been several times and tried almost everything on the menu and enjoyed it all. The setting, atmosphere, and staff are the best. And live music on the weekends too, good times for everyone.

Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Recently re-opened under new management the Silva Bay Pub is now back in business. Visited last night for the first Friday Sushi evening, our group of six enjoyed food off the standard menu as well as good sushi. Attentive staff and a warm welcome made for a lovely early evening drinks party.
