They are friendly and welcoming. We stopped while on a walk in the area. We each had drinks and some snacks. The zucchini strips were great to share. There are plenty of windows with great Bay views.

Seahorses Cafe is located right beside the ferry at Brentwood Bay. You go down a ramp and quickly see the coloured umbrellas. Now we had been doing an informal search for good fish and chips on the Saanich Peninsula, and it was proving to be...More

You mentioned that you think this is the same place as Blue Bayou. They are two different places. Seahorse is to the right of the Mill Bay ferry terminal while Blue Bayou is on another part of the bay further down to the... More
