Charming little wharf

Good area, a wee bit chilly depending on the time of the year. Good food selection. Parking is hard though

We go to Steveston Village often. We walk along the boardwalk starting from Pajos all the way down to Britania Shipping yard. A nice leisurely walk to enjoy the breeze, boats and the people. If you love to people watch this is the place in Richmond.

Friends brought us here during our recent trip to Vancouver and we really enjoyed the tour around, the sights, the smells, watching a family of sea otters playing amongst the boats, then a beautiful sunset. The highlight was going to dinner at an Italian restaurant called Paesano's, (seperate review) where it turns out that the owner/chef is of Indian descent!... More

You will find it busy during a nice summer day/evening. The historic village of Steveston is where the TV series, "Once Upon A Time" was filmed. If you are lucky, you could chance upon filming in progress. As you walk down the main street, you will notice Mr. Gold's shop or the cafe or the Storybrooke pet shop :) There... More

The 'village of Steveston' is in the south-west area of Richmond, the home of 'Once upon a time' TV series, is a collection of small couple owned variety stores, a fish selling dock and several very good seafood restaurants. I recommend 'Dave's fish and chips' on Monton Street.

Looking out at a working river port, with the clouds piling up like pillars in the west and Mount Baker hovering in the sky in the east - this is one of my favourite places in the world. An amazing variety of restaurants are available here, and you can buy fish straight off the boat while trading recipes with other... More

This little fishing village was once bustling with a huge fishery. There is still fishing going on from here but there's a lot more now - great restaurants, fish sales from the fishing boats, fantastic walking, tons of coffee and ice-cream shops and so on. The walking opportunities are fabulous as are the bicycling options. You feel a million miles... More

Enjoyed the tour of this fishing village. The guide talked about the canning that went on there and all along that water way. The history of the workers was most complete. We toured the Chinese workers home and enjoyed a cup of their Chinese Green Tea. I especially liked touring the Japanese home and garden of a specific family. This... More

We ate fish and chips at Pajo's. It may be the best I've ever eaten! Great place to stroll, experience the water and the local food and shops. Beautiful Boardwalk, lots of places to eat and intriguing shops to visit. A little less hustle and bustle.
