About Us

The Porthole opened its doors on April 1, 2018 (April Fool’s Day, what could go wrong!) by owners David Silva and Sascha Kuypers. Together with veteran chef Andreas Ohrt, they crafted a new and exciting venture for Steveston, giving the historic fishing village a fun European-style wine and tapas eatery.



Sascha's favourite kitchen tool is the culinary blow torch. Her favourite Friday night wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon but sometimes a Gin & Tonic or Amber Ale are just as satisfying. She is in charge of the whole operation but prefers to focus on the music.

Andreas really wants to add some witty phrases and perhaps create a new word that will enter the lexicon. But he has no time, he is busy dishing up the city’s yummiest tapas and juggling Portuguese cheese balls. He has a great story about how it took him 20 hours to drive from Kelowna to Vancouver. Seriously. And no it wasn’t an alien abduction. Or was it…



David is an accomplished dad and long-time Steveston resident. He likes to write in the third person. He loves reds from Spain’s Rioja region and vintage port. To date, he has broken four wine glasses, one plate, and lost a carafe behind the dishwasher. He is also in charge of checking the mail.

UPDATE: David has also broken a candle holder and eight glasses.
