The Ravenous Raven is an oasis of goodness on Texada Island. Great food and service, as well as a popular dining experience for the local population. The menu is great but I'd recommend going for one of the specials on the chalkboard when you come in.

The staff were great in helping design meals for my daughter, who is a celiac, even when they didn't have any specific gluten-free meals on the menu.

If you're visiting the Island, you may walk to double-check if they have room on Fridays and Saturdays. Just give them a call. Sometimes it can be busy, especially in the summer.

Flew in to Gillies Bay airport in our rented 172 for lunch. They arranged for Rudy to meet us and he gave us a lift to the restaurant which was a five minute drive.

Awesome servers they ensured everything was perfect. We arrived at noon on a Sunday and I are the breakfast with those nugget halved potatoes and extra tasty bacon $9. My friend ate seafood chowder it was very nice with large prawns.

Can't wait to come back. PS they have a room or two for rent above the restaurant in case you need a place to stay. An I imagine the deck during summer would be extra nice

This place is a hidden little gem that you wouldn't expect to find on Texada Island. The portions are huge and you will not go home hungry. The food is great and so is the atmosphere.

My wife and I stayed at the lodge and we were very glad we did truly a great place. The restaurant food was very good crab cakes coconut shrimp and fresh fish lots of menu choices so hope to try more when we return. The room was comfortable and clean with a fantastic view over Gilles bay and Vancouver island in the background, hidden balcony to view the harvest moon rising over the water. Loved the fresh fruit and oatmeal banana loaf for breakfast which was waiting for us in the fridge with fresh milk and juices coffee and teas

A must do when on the Sunshine Coast, well worth the ferry cost to get to Texada.
This restaurant has it all with a very diverse menu for that perfect burger fix to gourmet local seafood delicacies. On tap is locally micro brewed beer from Powell River plus specialty cocktails perfected with years of experience.
Added to the multi choices on the menu are the daily specials with something different for all tastes. The real challenge is to save room for a home made desert with changes daily.
A favorite is the 3 plate of appies to share along with the Ravenous Green salad.
And the service? top notch.
With views out onto Gillies Bay, watching cruise boats sail by, the setting couldn't be better.
Do yourself a big favour- come to Texada Island for a meal at the Ravenous Raven. You will not regret it.
