Leo's Tapas

Reviewed By Marg M - Langley, Canada

Very disappointing. Had some very fond memories at this restaurant. The last 2 times we have visited we have had a very poor experience. Long long waits for meals. Just not the same friendly atmosphere. Smaller portions of food, not enough staff. Waited over 1 hour for our meals no apology by owner just indifference. We have supported this restaurant as local residents but it seems that things have changed radically. Food quality not as good, portions smaller and long waits for food. Items missed from the orders. Will not return.

Mike's Place

Reviewed By CanBrit1 - Sudbury,ON

It's difficult to choose from the large variety of flavours - but go for it. There are the usual sizes from Kiddy to large, and cones or dish. Seating is limited but very characterful. Or just take your ice cream for a walk along the harbour.

Molly's Reach Restaurant

Reviewed By hockeye44 - Sechelt, Canada

So for those who don't know: The Beachcombers Television series produced by CBC Canada was shot on location in the Town of Gibsons on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. The central gathering location was Molly's Reach restaurant and it still exists many years after the end of the TV series. Quaint, waterfront cafe in the heart of lower Gibsons that you can relax unpretentiously and enjoy a reasonably priced meal.

Truffles

Reviewed By Sharon L - Gibsons, Canada

My husband and I love eating at Truffles. Especially for a late breakfast. Our favourite meal is the Western Omelet. But if you like chocolate, Sophie recently released her homemade signature dessert "Truffles Cheesecake"! WOW, it is over the top delicious!
It's decadent so I recommend you share a piece!

Fish and chips were delicious, food good and hot - few gluten free options. Relaxing dinner while watching the comings and goings in the bay. Would go again.

The Wheatberries Cafes all over the Sunshine Coast are Excellent! The Cranberry Granola is beyond fantastic and the range of choices in the restaurant are excellent. We enjoyed a spinach croissant and coffee while sitting on comfortable cushions and read all afternoon!

Smitty's Oyster House

Reviewed By s_hearsum90 - London, United Kingdom

As other reviews point out, the staff here are rude and impatient, beyond belief actually!
The oysters are average, not exactly fresh and although they grated the horseradish fresh it didn't seem to have much of a kick to it!
The salmon cakes however were outstanding and the wine was also well-priced and delicious (we had the Chardonnay).
I wouldn't let the staff put you off, just expect bad service, stay away from the oysters and go for their main dishes instead.

The menu changes periodically with the seasons, while the feature pastas and home made soups change daily. Stop by for a delish dining experience!

Reviewed By BC-Suncoaster - Gibsons, BC, Canada

Tried Sita's new Sunday brunch today & it is one of the best brunches we've had anywhere for a long time.
Everything fresh fresh fresh fresh fresh.
Leans a bit more to breakfast but with all the home made muffins & Strudel etc. it really pops.
Eggs Benny were as fresh as kitchen-ordered. Better than any big city buffet or cruise ship.
Service was attentive and friendly.
The price was $20 or $15 for seniors ! Where can you eat so well for so little?
This is a must try for everyone.
Kudos Deano, see you next Sunday. :)

Fabulous, Friendly and Professional Fine Dining. Choose from ala carte or a set menu, this is one of the most hospitable restaurants that we have ever visited. The Restaurant Head is knowledgeable far beyond the scope of the very beautiful coastal rural surroundings. Worth a trip to Gibsons just for Chasters and the Lodge is a great boutique hotel. They aim to please and the surely do.
