“Seafood Chowder is a must try.”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

The seafood Chowder was delicious. Our kids really enjoyed the chicken drumsticks.

The servers were very kind and welcoming.

We really enjoyed eating outside until the wasps decided to join us. We have one child very afraid.

Regardless we enjoyed our meal very much.

“Good outdoor or indoor dining”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We had been sailing all day from Comox and came into the marina for the night. This was the only option to eating on board so we were tired and went for it. We were in the marina to the south so we had to hike 15 minutes through the woods to get to the restaurant but it was well worth it. They have a great deck looking over the marina and since it was a warm evening and a Saturday night, it was busy. Even though we had no reservation the friendly staff readied a table for us in a good spot. The service was friendly and timely with very enjoyable food from a respectable menu. Everyone around us seemed to be having a good time, as we did too.
We would definitely come back here again but likely make a reservation if on the weekend.

“Beautiful location, super food, great hospitality”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Had a fantastic lunch here. Sat out on the deck, shared a pitcher of bee and ate the best fish tacos I've ever had. Great value. Really recommend this place.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

5 of us (including one child so we couldn't eat in the cute pub area) had dinner here last Sunday and all enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is in an adjacent room to the pub and, in past summers the wait staff often forgot we were there, so it was a pleasant surprise this time to receive good service. We'll definately be back.

“A change in ownership, a new fantastic menu!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

The Restaurant at Silva Bay has undergone a dramatic transformation. Operated now by the owners of Robert's Place, another Gabriola restaurant, the Silva Bay location boasts an outstanding, consistently good west-coast menu, and excellent service. The deck is beautiful and well appointed. Most evenings, you'll find live music in the dining room and the place has an overall feeling and buzz of success. We've visited several times and were very well pleased with everything on each occasion.
