I visit family on Gabriola about once a year. We have been going to Woodfire Restaurant ever since it opened. It has been consistently great. The food, service, and ambiance is all excellent.

A popular Gabriola dining experience. A range of imaginative pizza is on the menu. The ribs are a particular favourite of mine. Unfortunately they are not always on the menu.
