The Nova Kitchen

Bistro in Gibsons

While the steep climb to get here seems off-putting, it's worth it for this smashing little farm-to-table bistro – especially if you snag a patio table with its dramatic views over Gibsons Landing and the shoreline panorama. The seasonal menu can include BC-sourced treats like Chilliwack pork or Yarrow Meadow duck, lovingly prepared and served with delicious sides and super-warm service.

There's also a commitment to BC craft beers, look for choice quaffs from local Persephone Brewing Company.
