We were at the same buffet at the same time as the last reviewer! I am certain of this because the first picture is us! Thanks for the family photo. We mostly took pictures of the food. While we enjoyed the traditional breakfast offering it was the dim sum and sushi that we were excited about. It was a very... More

We experienced this Sunday brunch buffet with two friends during the Christmas season. The meal was an absolute delight. This brunch buffet is served from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM; I recommend that you arrive early. This is not a recommendation based on a limitation of the food offering it is a suggestion made as you'll want to make this... More

wonderful fresh fruit breakfast and a ton of other goodies all fresh and service was great. My only sad moment was they only serve Starbucks coffee and I'm a Timmy's girl :(

After 3 VERY disappointing breakfast buffet meals at Oru, we came here on our final morning in Vancouver to switch it up and had an excellent experience. Our server was Natalia, who was on point throughout the entire meal, giving us both great service and all kinds of informational goodies about the City and the Region. The waffles were excellent,...

we attended the Cafe Pacifica for brunch on Sunday 5th September, which happened to be the Chinese Moon Festival. The staff could not have been more attentive, right from the phone booking to the receptionist and serving staff the whole time we were there. Food was of high quality and a great range of dishes, many from Oriental cuisine, whenever... More

WE decided to have lunch here while waiting to check-in. The waitress who was working alone, was attentive and efficient. Our food was prepared to order and delicious.

We enjoyed the buffet breakfast and one dinner here. The buffet was delicious and had a wide variety of food to choose from. The dinner was delicious. Neither is cheap but both are very good!

All the guide books identify Cafe Pacifica as the place to have Sunday Brunch. At $52 it is expensive and I think falls short of the value one might expect. The venue is an open off lobby space in a modern hotel so lacking in atmosphere although the views over the harbour and adjacent cruise ships was nice enough. Service... More

Ate breakfast while I stayed at the hotel. The view was great…the decor was ok. Service was friendly. Not a really fancy ambience but a comfortable place to have breakfast.

Worst buffet experience ever. It made me unwell. Food quite bland. The waffles were hard as rock! Not worth the plates it's served on.
