Wonderful mediterranean in Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver

We had abt an hour before the ferry and this spot is directly across the street from the ferry entrance

We wandered in and sat down to get a quick bite to eat and watch what we could of the March BB playoffs.....

We were not up for full meal because we knew we had to be out of there as soon as the ferry slipped in.

We had their Seafood Chowder, Calamari and Bruschetta - as well as a glass of wine and pint of some ale they had on tap.

It is so extremely rare to come upon a find like this - the Chowder was superb, the Bruschetta was clearly all freshly chopped on a perfectly toasted breads - and woever was back there cooking , knew how to cook calamari - it is hard to not get the usual "chewy" appetizer - but here the calamari melted in your mouth, PERFECTLY COOKED!

The service was outstanding - the hosting and wait staff were so friendly and accommodating - I wanted to sat longer , but the ferry pulled in,

They had a great panoramic view of the ferry harbor and there looked to be a fair number of outside tables that could be a great spot to sit , drink and eat as the sun goes down

If I lived near here - I would be a regular

Hope I get a chance to try them again and recommend it with great gusto!

The spot was called the Bay Moorings and it is actually on the 2nd floor of the building across from the ferry ticket office.

    that's interesting - the Bay Moorings has been there in that spot (upstairs) with that name for decades (it sure seems like decades)

    glad you enjoyed the food - will take note
