I've been going here for about 20 years. I used to work at the Vesuvius Inn and I ate my meals here! You guys are great!

We always love to head to the Seaside for Fish & Chips!!! Really wonderful, and oh so fresh. They have an array of other great offerings; on sunny days the patio is great. In a hurry, you can go to the take-out window and get fish & chips and/or ice cream cones to take with you on the Vesuvius ferry!... More

We went for dinner with family who live on Salt Spring Island. They recommended the restaurant for the reputation of its fish and chips. Four of us had F&C and were well pleased. The fifth (a teenage rebel) had poutine and enjoyed that dish too. The following day we were leaving SSI on the Vesuvius ferry so we got there... More

Dinner with a view!!! I had tons of choices for where to go for dinner on my birthday & this is always the first place to come to mind especially if I've been away from the coast for a while. The cod here is the best. We started with calamari appies. The portion is generous for sharing. They're kind of... More

We returned for a visit to Salt Spring Island and decided to have dinner at the Seaside Kitchen. This place has always served consistently great meals. And the staff are great! Pauline, Dori and Carol seem to know all the customer's favourite meals and drinks and spend time chatting with the customers. They know everyone by name and treat them... More

We went on a Saturday night at prime time (7 pm). The place was hopping. We are thankful we had a reservation. One of us ordered mussels - they were fantastic. Another order the seafood curry - it was ok, but a bit sweet and not spicy enough. The portions are huge! The fish and chips seem very popular and... More
