Best food, best service and the pizza and specials were to to die for - you have to eat here if you are in SSI. Had a great pizza and our chef did a slight modification, with a big smile in her face- love it!

Went here for dinner and we had a lovely meal. The food was excellent and service good. Nice to have a "special" place to have dinner on the island, will definitely go again.

Twig & Buoy really gets it right- from the cozy rustic decor to the lovely jazz playing when you walk in. The food is a creative spin on comfort food that goes a little beyond the usual island fare. The menu offers a nice spectrum...More

Most of the restaurants on Salt Spring Island, BC are in Ganges, the main town on the island. However, a 5 or 6 minute drive north to Fernwood will take you to a fairly recent addition to the Island, the Twig and Buoy. The decor...More

We spent time at both Tofino and SSI and this restaurant was the best food we had! The food is outstanding...the ingredients so fresh. They have a wonderful knowledge staff and I love the fact that there is NO mirror in the women’s washroom. Well...More
