Float 30

Float 30 at Reed Point Marina

Port Moody’s Reed Point Marina is a hidden gem nestled just below the Barnet Highway alongside the typically serene waters of Indian Arm. In this picturesque setting lies Float 30 Restaurant, a culinary haven that promises not just a meal, but an unforgettable experience.


As I stepped into Float 30, I was immediately struck by its charming ambiance. The restaurant offers panoramic views of the marina, the water, and the surrounding mountains. The gentle sway of the boats only added to the sense of relaxation and escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The menu at Float 30 has a focus on fresh, locally sourced ingredients. From the moment I perused the menu, I knew I was in for a treat. With options ranging from freshly caught seafood to gourmet burgers made with grass-fed beef, I knew that there was something on the menu for me and both of my kids, even my kid with a very discerning palate (I was told it is rude to say she is a picky eater so here we are).


For starters, I couldn’t resist the plate of fresh Fanny Bay oysters on the half shell. The oysters were perfectly shucked and presented on a plate of ice with a side of freshly grated horseradish. The Fanny Bay oysters were a symphony of taste that left me craving more.

Float30 Seafood Linguine

For the main course, I opted for the Seafood Linguine in a creamy garlic sauce. There were more than enough mussels, clams, and beautiful large prawns on the linguine. The chunks of salmon in the linguine melted in my mouth. And the flavours of the al dente linguine with the creamy pasta sauce…oh my.

Float30 Burger

My picky eater kid had the bacon Portobello and Havarti Smash burger. This was one good looking burger! A 5 ounce beef patty, creamy Havarti cheese, sauteed Portobello mushrooms, caramelized mushrooms, arugula, Roma tomatoes all on a toasted Brioche bun. Did I say she was picky? She certainly picked an amazing burger!

The burger came with “endless fries”. Obviously housemade fresh french fries. Another wow. Delicious.

Float 30

As we savoured the last few bites of dessert, I couldn’t help but reflect on the evening we had just experienced. The food, the location, my dinner companions, and the attentive but not-overbearing service made for a wonderful and memorable dinner experience.

The total price of our meal which included the oyster starter plate, three main dishes, a shared dessert, and two pots of tea came to just over $105 before the gratuity. To me, that is very good value.

The kids and I are eager to return for another culinary adventure – perhaps brunch at Float 30 will be our next meal. If you find yourself in Port Moody, do yourself a favor and make a reservation at Float 30 Restaurant. Trust me; you won’t regret it.
