Our friend from Scotland was visiting us and wanted to take us out for lunch at a "good" restaurant in Powell River. There are several to choose from so it was a nice challenge.
We decided on the Tree Frog Bistro and it lived up to our expectations.We were seated outside with shade from the hot sun and a great view of the water and the mountains on Vancouver Island. Staff were very friendly and looked after our needs without being obtrusive. I had the steelhead (a type of sea going trout) with capers and it was perfect. My husband and our friend had the Oyster Poorboy. He had his with fries and she had hers with a salad. Both of them were happy with their choices. Best fries ever said my husband. Desert and tea topped off a memorable meal. We even met the new owner who stopped by to chat.

Good varied menu at a great price. The view from the deck across the water to Vancouver island is beautiful. We watched a lovely sunset and humpback whales blowing in the water as we ate our meal. Recommended.

Sitting on the Patio had a wonderful view. Unfortunately we were at the only table in the sun and was quite cool in the shade. Not into eating flowers, so the menu was a little yuppy for my taste. Service was good and was clean.

Above average food, and a great ocean view. Make sure to try the blackened Humboldt. The oyster po'boy was excellent - but huge.

We checked out the Tree Frog Bistro on Saturday, Sept 3 but decided to eat at a different restaurant that evening and come back to the Tree Frog Bistro on Sunday for supper. The restaurant looked great, menu choices looked great, the server at the front desk was friendly and helpful. However, on Sunday when we came into the restaurant at about 5:30, the server immediately said he could not take us and indicated we should leave as they were short staffed and wouldn't be able to provide service for at least an hour if we sat down. The server was clearly frazzled and upset and perhaps this was understandable - but we were very taken aback by this response. We travelled from Calgary and were really looking forward to eating there, so we were very disappointed...and not impressed with the way we were addressed by the server. I had to put a rating for Food and Value below, but they are not truly reflective as we never got to order or eat anything.
