I have lived in the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge area for almost 30 years and am so pleased at the arrival of Kingfishers to the area. We were in much need of a higher-end (though not super fancy) dining venue. The greatest strength of the restaurant is the service. I have been to Kingfishers around 10 times and every time the staff have been friendly, approachable, and responsive, but not overbearing (I hate it when wait staff are too present during my meals). The owners of the restaurant have been really thoughtful about the whole dining experience, creating a great open dining space with comfortable furniture, flexibility in the seating (that can accommodate families, singles dropping in for a quick beer on the way home from work, and romantic couples), and designing a building that really takes advantage of the beautiful view of the river and Mount Baker. There is varied menu with lots of healthy choices (rare in the pub world). The fish and chips are fantastic! Kingfishers is a restaurant with great value: good food, great view, and a wonderful local feel that is a pleasant change from the sterile and cookie-cutter environments of all the chain restaurants.
