Warm, welcome homey ambiance. Great home cooking with a bit of a chefs twist. Price point is fine. More to middling range. Been several times when we just say "Let's go out" after a day of working or relaxing on the weekend. Or had take out. Great hamburgers.

Gabriola Island is beautiful but what really amazed us was the quality of the restaurants! I would give Robert's Place more stars if I could. We ate there 3 times, had something different every time and every dish was delicious. The food by far was the best but I have to say they also served the best coffee I've ever... More

We stopped here for lunch and heartily enjoyed the vegan enchilada pie. Excellent flavour and the accompanying salad was one of the freshest I've been served at any restaurant and came with a delicious dressing. Our only disappointment was that there was only one of the enchilada pies left and apparently the vegetable poultry pie n the menu is no... More

The people service and food are excellent. There was a large group of us and we were well taken care of, all the meals arrived at the same time were hot and tasty.

What a delight! Fabulous food, great menu and extremely friendly staff. I had the classic bennie which was wonderful. My partner had the quesadilla and raved about it. The best he's ever had. The decor is not upscale if that is what you are looking for; but, it is a very comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. After all, remember, it is located... More

Welcoming and a major supporter of community events and fundraisers. Central location and great hours. Good place to go with kids. Dessert showcase is unbelievable and filled with numerous cakes and pies of all types,... More

Great menu as there is something for everyone's taste! Prices are reasonable and the coffee just keeps coming. I enjoy their breakfast, lunch and dinner and also the occasional late afternoon coffee and dessert from their extensive dessert menu. I have noticed that many patrons like myself, enjoy delicious expectations upon entering the restaurant and surveying their dessert showcase. Often... More

This is a good place to stop for some lunch. Service was good, food was decent, especially if you have kids. Seating and style of the place is nothing fancy, but liked the price and the feel of the place.

We had a group of 10 in for a family dinner and everyone loved what they had. One thing they need are external lights in the parking lot! Bring your flashlight!

I had the most amazing vegan meal tonight at Robert's Place. The veggie tempura was on point as was the stew and lemon cauliflower steak. The dissert was also incredible. It should also be known I brought a carnivorus date and he was blown away as well. And the service was amazing! Wonderful job! We look forward to more!
