We farm on the island and supply lamb and eggs to Twg and Buoy. We had an amazing dinner this week! We started with a lamb liver pate appetizer... smooth, rich, creamy. A nice selection of fresh bread, toast points, capers, radish to cleanse the...More

Quite expensive for what you get - obviously they've found out people from Vancouver are coming. We're locals. Didn't feel that at home. Food is on the bland side - nothing that memorable. Beer is expensive too - 7.5$ for a pint. The worst part...More

Thanksgiving dinner was fantastic. A complete home cooked meal. Fresh and flavourful. Regret not taking a photo. Would absolutely return.

Oh man! This was definitely the best food we had while on our week long visit to Salt Spring Island. The best salmon I have ever eaten (and I've eaten allot of salmon). My wife had the pork jowels which made her eyes roll back...More

We had a very nice dinner at Twig & Buoy. We started with roasted vegetables beautifully presented in a circle with a geranium in the centre. Presentation aside, the dish was delicious. One of us had the steelhead and the other had a mushroom pizza....More

A short, scenic drive from Ganges brings you to Twig and Buoy. The menu is inspired and everything we’ve tried has been awesome. But I want to talk about their pizza. Baked in a fire wood oven, every offering is unique and in my books,...More
