FIVE is a New England style Oyster Bar infused with Lebanese flavours. They are located right by the pier with views of the ocean. What better way to enjoy the sights than with the best that the West Coast has to offer. They only use fresh seafood and their seafood availability depends on whats in season. You won’t find any frozen seafood here.
We were invited to dine here and try a few of their signature items. It’s not that often that we are in White Rock, but good to see the restaurant scene diversifying.
There are lots of seats for small to large groups and you can grab reservations via OpenTable to make sure you have a table set aside for you and your party.
With some tables, you can get a view of the kitchen if you want to see their chefs hard at work crafting your meal.
This dish has ricotta and spinach ravioli with lobster meat and a blue cheese cream sauce. There are 4 huge pieces of the ravioli covered in the thick and creamy blue cheese sauce that compliments very well. This was one of our favourite dishes of the evening.
This dish is made of free range grilled chicken, topped with a spicy seafood creole butter sauce, lobster, prawns, scallops, bell peppers. served with roasted vegetable and potatoes. The sauce is very delicious with a subtle kick of spice, which goes well with the whole dish. The veggies and potatoes were cooked well.
Our portion was plated in a smaller portion for pictures, so the normal size of the dish will be bigger. This is made of short grain rice, chorizo, chicken, prawns, mussels, clams, sweet peas and kalamata olives in saffron tomato braise. This dish is a bit spicy and we found the rice to be a bit on the harder side.
The steak is served with daily potatoes, roasted vegetables and a Cognac peppercorn sauce. There are 2 versions of this board on the menu, either with Sirloin or Filet Mignon. Both are great options and it showcases Canadian beef and tastes great.
These were huge!! It comes 4 per order and it is topped with blue cheese cream sauce, garlic, shallots and spinach. Good for those who like oyster and creamy sauces.
Kusshi raw oyster
Kusshi is a type of BC oyster named after the Japanese word ‘precious’. It’s our favourite type of oyster as it is so fresh, creamy, and sweet. If you’re new to eating raw oysters, its one of the varieties that are easiest to eat specially for those who may not like slimy textures.
These raw oysters were served with salmon roe, horseradish, lemon and their house made sauces.
This salad has spinach, pickled golden beets, dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds, feta cheese and red-wine vinaigrette. If you looking for something light to accompany your meal, this is definitely it.
Overall, solid restaurant on the pier if you’re looking for some West Coast cuisine with a hint of Lebanese influence. We really enjoyed their fresh seafood, steak, and other items that show off some of the items that are produced in Canada.
