The food when it came was tasty and cooked well. The menu is quite limited.The service however was appalling, there were only six or so tables taken and three waitresses but everything took ten to fifteen minutes from getting menu's and ordering drinks then ordering our meals. Don;t get me wrong I was not in a hurry but the pauses... More

Location is amazing. The wine that was recommended was lovely. The food was out of this world. Taste, presentation and service. The chef even came out of the kitchen to say hi. If you enjoy a special meal in a beautiful location make sure you get yourself here. We will definitely be back.

We've been coming to the area for many years now and were very positively surprised by the Upper Deck Café. Food, service and location are hard to beat. It's a bit off the beaten tracks, not particularly easy to find, but absolutely worth the trip. We had a chat with the new team around chef Jennifer and you could tell... More

We are moored beneath the Upper Deck Cafe at Secret Cove, Half Moon Bay, BC, Canada. We arrived while Chef Jennifer D'Amour was preparing the evening entries. The aromas reminded me of wholesome cooking with a sampling of genius. I could not wait for our evening reservation to begin. As promised from the succulent smells that filled the air earlier...

The new chef and owner, Jen, quietly opened this past weekend to iron out the bugs before the long weekend in May. Tastefully redecorated you can't beat this floating "Bistro" on the upper deck of the marina store. The food left our taste buds tingling and what a great soft opening menu, at very reasonable prices. Good wine selections to... More

The crew is changing this year so looking forward to trying out the new fare. It will be a tough act to follow with long time proprietors rocking it out every summer. The location can't be better. The restaurants floats on the second floor of the marina store located in Secret Cove Marina. You can come by boat and tie... More

Wonderful late summer meal on the patio with the sun going down. I chose the, "FRESH SHEET", halibut and was enthralled with the multiple flavours greeting my taste buddies. The ice cold pale ale started things rolling and the uniquely-flavoured spread for the bread kept it rolling. Wonderful service by three different people was warm, efficient yet not rushed. Thanks...
