Serving steaks, seafood and Mediterranean cuisine since 1979. Covered heated patio by the wate that is overlooking Horseshoe Bay. Take-out available. Open daily
Been here on three different occasions before (2 of them before Dinehere.ca) and once in 2008, and again last night. EVERY TIME the service was terrible.....and once the food too. Last time (2008) waitress was a total B_tch.......we complained about food; restaurant didn't bother to rectify the situation.
Anyhow, let bygones be bygones......Tonight my parents and uncle wanted to go to West Vancouver and brought up coming to this restaurant....I thought "3 times before and each sucked" but realized that way quite a few years ago and well let's hope for the best"
What a 360 degree turn.....Greeted immediately and were on the patio outside. This time we had a friendly waitress and the food was very enjoyable and tasty.
My mom ordered a bunch of pita bread (???????) ha ha, but for dinner she ordered mousaka......Dad had fish and chips as did my uncle. I ordered fettucini alfredo and a ceasar salad. we also ordered calamari appetizer and saganaki to share the 4 of us.
The saganaki try as you might goes hard quickly....but that's anywhere.....somehow they only know how to make it in Greece......
The Calamari this time was great. Back in 2008 when we came, who knows what they served us, but presented it as Calamari and even argued with us that it was calamari when it wasn't.
Oh and the first time in the mid 90's (when I was a young teenager....13) my parents, my mom's best friend and her husband and their 2 kids (14 and 23) we all came here; mom's friend husband ordered calamari and he didn't like it and returned it. We waited SO LONG for our food, that my mom's friend starting getting very mad at the waiter saying it's taking forever; our appetite has diminished and they were seriously considering canceling the whole order and going to eat elsewhere......but since there were two teenagers who had school the next day decided to just stick around.......and they never took the calamari off the bill; and the other parties daughter had to fight the waiter to get it off the bill
Anyways, back to (2015) The Calamari was fantastic, the Ceasar salad was delicious.....And my fetticini alfredo? well to be honest, I would had been more happier with a bigger portion for the price.....but you know how good fettucini tasted in the restaurants in the late 80's and 90's, but now alot of restaurants use cheap ingredients so quality goes down? Well it looks like they didn't down grade and it tastes the way fettucini alfredo should taste.
My dad and uncle weren't too fond of their food, but then again Dad doesn't usually go out for fish and chips and probably would had prefered steak.......Don't know what my uncles issue was (he seems picky anyways) Mom thought her mousaka was ok. I was ready for disapointment; but thought it was fantastic food......Totally a turn around from the other times I came......Good job!!!!!!!!
I was glad to come here after all, I was happy with EVERYTHING this time. Will return next time in West Van
Mediterranean food that is pretty good (depends a lot on who is in the kitchen). We have visited with these folks many times over the years and we have been satisfied and sometimes delighted. As for most restaurants, the prices keep going up and you can find better value in central WV or NV. But you won't get a view of the Horseshoe Bay harbor anywhere in the Bay. If you are waiting for the ferry to Nanaimo, this is a most convenient location for food, rest and a glass of wine.
We went here today for some brunch and we were very disappointed with the quality of the food. I ordered the spinach, feta, and onion omlette with hashbrowns, fresh fruit, and toast. I got my food and all looked well. I started to eat and the inside of the omlette was very runny and had a very strong taste and smell of fish. My hashbrowns were very tasty, but the "fresh fruit" was a very thin slice of melon, cantelope, and one strawberry. My bf ordered the Fresh Oysters, which were $9 for half a dozen, they came out with one wedge of lemon and some sauce. They were not served with the little seafood forks. We also ordered a calamari, which was bland. It wasn't the "normal" type of calamari that we are used to seeing. They were the ring style, very thick and chewy. The service was ok, we had to ask to get refills for our coffee, and the man who greeted us at the door seemed a bit pushy to get us inside. The value I would say was poor. We spent $50 for the oysters, 2 coffees, 1 appy calamari, and an omlette. I would say the deck would be the selling point of this place, even the deck is lacking. The tables were camper style plastic with metal legs and no table clothes etc. The view of the bay is nice though. I will not be returning to this place nor would I recommend it.
This place was a total surprise.
We were wandering around Horseshoe Bay a few weeks ago and stopped into Moorings for a quick drink.
The patio is beautiful - overlooking the boats, mountains etc - perfect summer in BC stuff.
The serves are quick and friendly (I think they are used to getting people out in time for their ferries).
The food - well, it's not fine dining but wow were we impressed.
This place has some of the most authentic Greek food we've found in Canada and we've tried a lot of places.
2 words - marinated octopus.
Get some now!
It was perfectly seasoned and grilled but very tender.
Houmous was great as was the saganaki and the pita seem like they are made in house.
A great place to hang out and have some delicious snacks in a gorgeous setting - check it out!
