This restaurant is always full. Best to get there early for their "happy hour" which they offer every day of the week and there are special drinks for each day. The service is impeccable and the atmosphere is like a typical restaurant/bar. The food is very fresh - amazing salads, awesome burgers and reasonable starters. Their "main" meals are quite... More

This place defines average and chain restaurant. The service is great and what you expect from a restaurant like this, but the food is so predictably boring. Who has a slurpee machine for a Bellini? Prices are out of line with what you get. You might as well walk the extra two blocks and go to Red Robin and save... More

You get what you expect, nothing more. Friendly staff, ok food. I thought the Bellini that I ordered was delicious and fancy, until I noticed the Bellini machine behind the bar--looks like a slurpee machine--then I was less impressed by what you have to pay for them.

There are a number of Cactus club cafes around Vancouver, all are great places for a tasty light bite at lunch. The calamari with jalapeno and the szeuchan chicken wraps being particular favourites. Service excellent and prices reasonable. Thoroughly recommend.

Stopped in for dinner one night. Have eaten in the one at home a few times so figured should try the west coast original. Essentially same menu, but a step up in terms of layout and atmosphere. All dishes served timely and correct. Very good service overall. Would definitely recommend.

Great location on Robson, heated outdoor seating but the staff were young and inexperienced. Drinks were blah and the food was typical food services fair. Won't go back next time I'm in town.

Been there a couple of times during our stay in Vancouver. Nice, trendy place. Serious good food and very consistent quality-wise. Which is an achievement in itself as these places are not small. Good choice of reasonable priced wines as well. We like that :-).

Grab a friend...date...a couple of martinis, appys and sit on the patio (tiny but never seem to have troubles getting a seat at any time) and people watch:) Service is always solid, food is reliable, drinks without flaw. A nice casual afternoon or pre-dinner break while shopping.

It's in the middle of Robson street on your left side, they have a small covered patio on the street and we sat there during happy hour having a couple of cocktails. Excellent service, fair prices (on drinks). Will be back if ever in Vancouver again.
