Lots of options, stunning view

The restaurant has a lodge-like feel. It's open-air and we had a table overlooking the Lion's Gate bridge. My daughter had a veggie wrap she loved and I had a Caesar salad (and stole some of her fries). The service was excellent.

Everyone should visit Prospect Point, and when you get there, you'll be tired and hungry from all the walking you do to seeing Stanley Park's points of interest. When we got hungry, we went to Prospect Point Restaurant--and we were not disappointed. They offer some of the best fish and chips you've ever eaten.

Called here during a fabulous walk around Stanley Park for some much needed refreshments and food and so pleased I did - fabulous location, food, drink and staff. Loved it!

Arrived with a warm welcome, but was a bit confused when we were not seated, only welcomed. We were told to go ahead and have a seat. At least we got to find a good table with a nice view of the bridge. The prices were steep - $14.00 for a decent burger - and my girlfriend is vegetarian and... More

One wonders why tourist restaurants are famous for serving bad food at high prices. Well, this one fits the definition perfectly! Greasy burgers served on tin foil dishes on a black paper that melts with your food as you eat it! and all of this for $17. Burger, soup, beer & coffee ended up costing us $35 each for lunch....

This restaurant is located inside Stanley Park. We went there after visiting the aquarium primarily because it was raining and we didn't want to walk far. I didn't expect much but was surprised by a great lunch. I had a "salmon burger" with salad which was one of my favorite meals on this trip to Canada. Service was great! The... More

Discovered this little gem while cycling around Stanley Park, and in need of refreshment. Expecting the normal sort of tourist cafe we were gobsmacked to find this kind of hippyish jungle inspired lookout post serving an excitingly different menu. Serendipity indeed!

The Best Fish and Chips by Far! Not your ordinary fish and chips!! One of us had cod and one of us had salmon!!! I never had salmon and chips before and the batter was so crisp and delicious. I tend to pick off the batter as most places have too thick and doughy batter. This batter was thin and... More

The food was not bad but it is overpriced. Not sure if they had tips included , if so they got me twice. Guess we have been to too many good places that we would prefer ahead of this place. I would not go back. The Prospect point itself is well worth seeing. Really enjoyed the view. That I would... More
