Murrieta’s West Coast Bar & Grill opened its doors in June 2001 and is named after Joaquin Murrieta – the famous “gentleman outlaw” of California. Like us, he was known for his love of excellent food and wine.
Located in the former Alberta Hotel Building (circa 1890), Murrieta’s still boasts some of the hotels original walls and fixtures. With a large selection of seafood, steak, and pasta; Murrieta’s cuisine best reflects the culture of the West Coast. The extensive wine list compliments this theme with a strong focus on Pacific wines, although great wines from the Old World and other regions are also well represented. Murrieta’s lounge showcases live bands on Friday and Saturday nights from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Bring a date and dance the night away with musical styles ranging from R&B and Funk, to Classic Rock and Jazz.

Joshua Stoddart - Executive Chef

At an early age it was very clear to Chef Stoddart that he was meant to cook. In grade three, a bright-eyed Joshua arrived at show and tell in a too-large chef jacket. it was no surprise to family and friends when he got his first gig at Oodles at 11 years old. From that point on, Josh went out of his way to learn every job in a restaurant including bussing and serving before finally settling in the kitchen in his early twenties.

While apprenticing, he worked under talented chefs at Il Sogno and Capo but ended up challenging the apprenticeship program to study independently. During independent study, he completed 3 levels of the WSET program for sommeliers, and gained employment as a sous chef at Harbour House, eventually working his way up to Chef at Sugo in 2012.

In 2017 Josh joined the Teatro team under Chef Dave Bohati and together the pair grew, gaining accolades from the 2017 Gold Metal Plates, 1st place in the Great Canadian Kitchen Party, and 3rd place for the Canadian Culinary Champions. Moving forward, Chef Stoddart took home two wins at the Rocky Mountain Shellfish Festival in 2017 & 2018, as well as the cleanest plate award in the PEI International Shellfish Festival. Chef Josh Stoddart has blossomed into a well-rounded chef with a humble attitude and a clear vision of the future for Murrieta’s.
