You guys are killing me with these pictures of food.. And i just ate lunch.

Salmon house on the hill in West Van is my favorite restaurant. If you like seafood you have to check it out. Go after dark, amazing views.

Great, casual atmosphere. Kind of retro, funky, nice neighborhood feel:

Yes to the Salmon House. My former employer used to manage the place, if it is anything now like it used to be back then....darn that was good! But however cheap it was for me to go eat there back then....that's a pricey place to eat.

Darn them Victoria pics.....I can't get there for a couple months but am sending some friends to investigate.

Sabri....Wah Lai Hun...that's more in my budget these days, in Victoria.

Crow & Gate Pub in Cedar

This place is incredible and probably the number one destination point for a motorcycle ride on Vancouver Island. The most authentic English pub in British Columbia for sure. Great food, outside patio and gardens plus a large parking area for motorcycles. http://www.crowandgate.com/


Can you say Guinness

Love that place. The beer and oysters (fried) are amazing.

Good to know - another reason to move to the mid-Island! The search is gaining more focus.

Whoever didn't mention Hungry Herby's should go there. Even go to Cache Ck just for Hungry Herby's. Honorable mention to Vedder Mtn Grill in Yarrow and El Nopal in Sumas (Wa)

Mazatland in Castlegar, authentic Mexican food.
Waddy's in Vernon, cheap breakfast, greasy and good.
The Hut in Nakusp. Real drive in food.

I am not sure if you are joking or not but I would agree that most Nelson food is subpar. Horrible is too strong. Overpriced and meh with no consistency is my feelings (and many others I know). I have not been to Itza but have heard someone else say it was good so will give it a try. The new restaurant that replaced Bottom Chef Canada supposedly blows. The new owner of Funky Monkey has removed a bunch of stuff of the menu and added sushi and is calling it Funky Sushi (that sounds just wrong when talking about seafood).

Oooops...... Maybe they learned from Castlegar. Weird ingredients also I bet.

I agree, Nelson has sub-par dining,unfortunately. Although I did have two good meals in a row at the All Seasons in the past few months. I sort of gave up going out for dinner in town...too many disappointing meals. That said, I am going out this very evening to the newplace where Fusion (Bottom Chef Canada) used to be. I think its called Relish...I will report back....
