nice dining experience

we enjoyed our entree and the staff was amazing, the view fantastic. the drinks were very expensive and the desert had been in the fridge a day or two unfortunately. Other than that recommended highly.

Staying at the Pan Pacific hotel and looking at the mountains and water is breath taking. Now having a great breakfast and getting this view is even better. Food is very good and staff are friendly and make sure your meal arrives hot and fresh. Highly recommend breakfast there

We stopped by for breakfast after our cruise. The food was good. It was really expensive. But they held our bags for us while we ate, which was awesome, and their bathrooms were really nice. So overall, it was a great experience. I just wish the food had been a little better for the price.

Included the breakfast buffet in the sleeping room booking at a discount from the walk in price. Excellent buffet, international selections, very attentive servers, all servers helping each other out, very good experience both from a service standpoint and great food.

Cafe Pacifica is situated in the five star Pan Pacific Hotel and ls located at Canada Place Pier which sits over the water. Reservations were made with a request for a table with a view.

Café Pacifica is located in the Pan Pacific Hotel and they do up a magnificent Sunday brunch. As my daughter's birthday fell on a Sunday, I decided to splurge ($52/person) and start our day here. The offerings of sushi, crab legs, shrimp, alongside fruit platters was just to start. There are 6-7 hot offerings from sausage/bacon, Eggs benedict, roasted potatoes,... More
