the story

Located in the newly developed Water Garden Pavilion at Prince  Arthur's Landing, Bight Restaurant and Bar rests along the shore of Lake Superior in the heart of Thunder Bay's scenic Marina.

The natural northern beauty of our  surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for our local and seasonally inspired fresh  menu whether you are dining in the restaurant or out on our lakefront patio.


At Bight, expect a dynamic cocktail menu crafted with in-house  ingredients, a Wine Spectator Award winning wine list with hand selected bottles and a menu that reflects a passion for real food made  to  order with the freshest of ingredients.

We take pride in the local produce that we are able to showcase and the partnerships that we have forged for sustainability within our community.

the team

Bianca Garofalo - Owner/General Manager

Owner and innovator of Bight Restaurant & Bar, Bianca Garofalo has been involved in the industry in Thunder Bay for over 10 years and was instrumental in bringing about this beautiful new waterfront business. After owning and operating a successful restaurant in the Port Arthur downtown core, Bianca moved on to invest herself in the new development at Prince Arthur’s Landing by orchestrating Bight’s creative space, dynamic menus and world-meets-community vision. Recently, Bianca was awarded the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for her incredible effort in bringing Bight into being. Currently Bianca manages the day-to-day operations of the ever-changing atmosphere of the restaurant, the rich tapestry of functions that are hosted in Mariners Hall and the extensive roster of events in the community that Bight is proud to be part of.


Katrina Oostveen - Operations Manager

Katrina’s passion for all things culinary started at a young age in the family gardens and it was a natural fit that she would pursue a career in restaurant. She has been in the industry in many capacities for over 10 years, working her way up from busgirl and hostess, to serving, bartending, and managing. After completing a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Political Science from Lakehead University she decided to pursue her true passions and returned to school at Confederation College in the Hospitality Management Program and graduated with honours. Katrina is always up for a challenge and when she’s not at the restaurant or travelling she can be found testing out new culinary ideas in her kitchen or racing sailboats on beautiful Lake Superior.


Allan Rebelo - Executive Chef

Executive Chef Allan Rebelo is an intrepid and talented young chef who was born and raised in Thunder Bay and who learned to love food at an early age through his rich Portuguese background. Allan began working locally in restaurants over 7 years ago and was an apt pupil who was quickly promoted according to his keen skill and was elevated to sous chef over 4 years ago. He has studied through the Culinary Program at George Brown College in Toronto but now mans the helm of our locavore inspired menu yet still manages to touch on international trends. He continues to create partnerships in our community to integrate the freshest, seasonal produce into our dishes and aspires to bring a holistic nose to tail mentality to our menu.
