We went into the bar where we were told to sit anywhere. The only available tables all had dirty plates and glasses. We chose one and waited. And waited. Several staff went by. All ignored us. No one cleared the table. No one wanted to take our order. Attempts to get a staff member to stop at our table were... More

you can skip the Cactus Club and Joe Fortes and go straight to Carderos for the great atmosphere, amazing view of the harbor, friendly staff and outstanding food. I would recommend starting with the shrimp dumplings and the Ahi tuna, and the fish Tacos as a main. The stir frys are also excellent as is the Salmon and steaks!! Best... More

The restaurant sits over the water amid the marina and within a few hundred feet of the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Super service and food. I would recommend making reservations early as it is always busy. Parking on the street is usually no problem. The views are great from anywhere in the restaurant and because it is surrounded by boats of... More

When I heard we were going to a pub I was not expecting such good food. Waitress was fantastic and the seafood was delicious. We had the habour plater and shrimp cocktail for the four of us to share. More than enough on the plater. The humus was great as well. The couple we were with mention sometimes they just... More

I like the atmosphere in the bar while you wait for your flag to be put up to tell you your table is ready. Staff are always happy and ready to help you with whatever you need. Make sure to book your table as it gets pretty busy. I love their spinach salad.

Valentine's dinner here was just great. We had Caesars, Mediterranean salad, shrimp dumplings,cedar plank salmon, tuna and scallops. With a lovely bottle of red wine. dinner was truly delish. The server was really good, very informative and attentive without being overbearing. A lovely evening out, will go back again.

A must visit restaurant, be sure to request seat by the ocean. The mussels are a must have, and desert super. Great fun and most relaxing.

When my husband and I go for a walk along the seawall we love to stop by here to have a drink and a appetizer. If you can get a table by a window in the lounge area you have a great view and it makes you feel like you're on a cruise ship sitting looking out at the water... More

One of the best restaurants in Vancouver / Coal Harbour! If you dine out at only one restaurant while visiting Vancouver come here, great food and beautiful view of Coal Harbour, Stanley Park and North Shore.
