As a vegetarian, I was a tad unsure walking into a restaurant named after an animal, but they had some decent vegetarian options. They made the best Brussels sprouts I've ever had. Beautiful decor--loved the brick walls and wood tables. Nice place for a date.

We enjoyed our dinner here! We had a mixed platter and the braised beef was our favorite. The service was great, the food was fine though not a wow!

We tried this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night. Seating wasn't a problem, but the noise level was a bit much for conversation. The meals were good, but you definitely need an appetizer or desert to feel full in this cuisine. The bill for 4 meals, 4 beers and a med price bottle of white wine came to $208... More

I had the short ribs with a piece of bone marrow to enjoy on the side. It was falling off the bone delicious! My husband had the mussels and they were also very tasty. We had shared a creme brulee which was also very good. This place is very busy and is located close to the center of Gastown in... More

We were walking by and my partner liked the little tables outside- my feet hurt so he won! The Caesar Salad is wonderful !! Where do I start?? - amazing homemade dressing, generous portion of the best cheese... And I'm not a particular crouton fan, but these are freshly made... Plus the Salmon Sampler- my partner loved his! I am... More

We thought the Flying Pig was going to be a tourist trap but were delighted by the excellent fare and friendly service. Place was bustling so ate at the bar and the server was a hoot.

We visited this place during happy hour and had some excellent 'appies' and also very nice wine for $4 a glass. Friendly service and overall a nice place to hang out to watch the local crowd of young professionals.

This small, charming restaurant was recommended to us by friends living in Vancouver. Fun, inventive menu, very attentive and charming staff in a pleasing setting. This was our last meal in marvelous Vancouver before we had to go home; so glad we got to fit this one in. A must while in the city.

Old classics done a little differently, but differently in a great way. Like Mac & Cheese with chicken & pork. Mounds of shoestring fries, but lightly seasoned. Excellent service too.
