There has been a lot of hype about this Yaletown restaurant and with the name The Flying Pig how could you go wrong....what meat eating foodie doesn't enjoy pork?

The Flying Pig (Yaletown) quickly became a favourite location to go with friends - locals and visitors, it has a fabulous atmosphere, great decor, fun staff, and good food and drinks, no matter the time of day! Discovered one evening after work shortly after moving back to Vancouver and into the Yaletown area, it became one of the places I... More

Yale Town in Vancouver, BC is a fast rising neighborhood of shops, restaurants and apartment and condo residences. We walked around a while and asked the man in the wine store for a restaurant recommendation. He told us to try The Flying pig. And we had a good meal at a good price with good service.Yale Town and the Flying... More

The Flying Pig (Gastown). Loved it so much here, we had two meals over our 4 days in Vancouver. Looking for a cool eatery in Gastown, we menu-browsed and settled on the Pig as it looked appealing from the outside. We happened in at "Happy Hour" (4-6pm), with $4 glasses of wine and appys from $5-6/each. The appys were DELICIOUS... More

Recently ate at The Flying Pig, and had a wonderful meal. Our server didn't seem terribly enthusiastic, but got the job done. The food was fantastic. Try the plater special if you aren't dining solo.

They sure do here. What an outstanding experience. On a Monday night we went to the Flying Pig in Yaletown. What a cool place. From the decor, to the food, to (especially) the servers. My GF is a foodie. Of the first order. So unfortunately we were not that hungry. Thinking we were smart, we ordered 4 small plates /... More

We had a really delicious meal, great service and atmosphere. Great salad with delicious dressing, salmon sampler, and chicken with veg and buttermilk mash. Fabulous. The waiters were excellent. Highly recommend.

I was extremely impressed with the service at the Flying Pig when I went for a snack and meal last night. The staff at the front, the bartender and my waitress were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and willing to assist with any request. Unfortunately the food was a different kettle of fish as they say. I think perhaps there was a... More

We had dinner here last month with our 5 yr old daughter. The General Manager, Elle Boutilier, was fabulous. She came over and brought crayons and paper and asked my daughter to make a special picture that she could hang up in the restaurant. Elle came back several times to check on Allie's progress. Allie loved this. It kept her... More

A friend who had previously traveled to Vancouver recommended this restaurant. We had a great dinner and great service. The menu was varied with so many choices. We were happy to dine here a second time after discovering that another nearby place we wanted to try had a long wait. The halibut with the gnocchi was OUTSTANDING!
