 Atlas Steak + Fish Restaurant

It is always a wonderful experience to discouver a new ( to us) restaurant. One that brings together the perfect ambiance, delicious cuisine and superior hospitality. The Atlas Steak + Fish restaurant in Langley does just that!

Barbara and I had walked by the restaurant on several occasion but had never ventured in. However, we received a free appetizer coupon for their happy hour. Opportunity has knocked at our door. Barbara had an Ophthalmologist   appoint near by. So we decided to find out what Atlas was all about.

To say the less we were impressed. From the smiling host to the charming waitress and even the manager stopped by to see how we were doing and chatted with us.

We of course started with a glass of wine from Sumac Ride. I had the Sumac Ridge Sauvignon Blanc Private Reserve Inniskillin Cabernet Sauvignon. The restaurant features an excellent wine list. Featuring many BC wines, including Ice Wine.

Barbara had the New England Lobster and Shrimp Roll - Atlantic lobster and argentinian red shrimp salad, buttered toasted brioche,tobik.

Barbara was quite delight with her selection.

I ordered the Warm Prime Rib Bun red wine jus, toasted brioche bun, truffle mayonnaise. So Good! 

We completely enjoyed our time at Atlas. The staff was quite friendly and had to our enjoyment. One of the ladies we knew from having previously worked at a restaurant in Tsawwassen.

In conversation with the manager. Barbara mentioned her Soroptimist club talking about the Fund raising Gala they were putting on in Langley . The Manager provided a gift certificate for the event.. Wow..

We recommend Atlas Steak + Fish It gets our five star approveal

The Village Pub & Ocean Park Pizza

Barbara and I returned from a recent housesitting assignment to our home in White Rock, British Columbia. After unloading our car and unpacking the suitcases we were too tired to cook, we decided to eat out. Pizza had been on the back of my mind all day but Barbara was wanting something different; so we compromised and went to Ocean Park Pizza.

We had eaten at the original place often in the past, but never in the newer one since relocating to the area in 2019.  We had driven by the restaurant on excursions to Crescent Beach and noted there were some major changes and often remarked we should try it again. It was BC Day, a holiday with fantastic weather; knowing the beaches would be crowded we headed to Ocean Park Pizza which turned out to be a smart choice. There is limited parking in front but they have a very large parking lot on the backside of the building so parking was not an issue.

Things had certainly changed, a new building with an even newer patio than what we remembered. We entered and were immediately greeted by two polite young men with welcoming smiles. They asked a few questions to determine where we would like to sit. We chose the patio on the side of the building  away from the main street in the shade. The patio was created when the pandemic struck in 2020.

Once seated we were quickly greeted by our charming waitress. Within minutes Barbara was sipping a classic margarita and I was enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir from Laughing Stock Winery on BC's Naramata Bench. I knew I was having an Hawaiian Pizza; yes they have a beef dip I will save that for next time. The menu is large, after reading it Barbara opted for the warm seafood salad.

The meal was served quickly, the pizza was perfect; the salmon, prawn and scallop salad was mouth watering according to Barbara. Our waitress as I mentioned, was quite charming, and most efficient; allowing for brief conversations which added to the enjoyment of the meal.

The menu prices were reasonable, except the glass of wine was on the higher side.

All in all we would give The Village Pub & Ocean Park Pizza five stars and I will return for a beef dip!

*In February 20, 2019, the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce held its 20th Business Excellence Awards Gala. At the event, Ocean Park Pizza & Village Pub was recognized for our "success in business" and "exemplary contribution to the community.*
