I had originally made a 8:30PM reservation for a party of five. We arrived 20 minutes late due to Stanley Park traffic. Chambar was kind enough to hold our reservation. The food, service, and presentation is Excellent! We had ordered three appetizers, the cure meats, the smoked duck breast, and the albacore tuna. I specifically enjoyed the duck and tuna.... More

It was clean and fun and had food that you don't find on Main Street. Perfect for foodies looking to have something different and special

Vancouver is known for the large and meaty mussels. This place knows just how to cook them! They have great and unique food and drinks and we were not disappointed with a thing. I had this amazing drink that was gin infused with figs and it had blue cheese on the side to eat as you drink and it was... More

I was disappointed that I was too late for lamb (sold out). Settled for a very delicious (although pricey) 10 oz. peppercorn crusted New York steak with amazing potatoes. My husband raved about the mussels in white wine. Requested a drink that was not on the menu ~ tequila, mezcal & blood orange juice ~ the bartender came through with... More

We came here for a pre-show dinner prior to heading to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. It's close enough that you can park your car once and be good for the evening. The restaurant has a very cool ambiance and it was definitely hopping on a busy Friday night. Our dinners were very tasty. We give high marks for presentation but... More

I did not enjoy my experience here. Everything both myself and my mother ordered was awful. Especially avoid ordering the cocktails, they are expensive and terrible. There are plenty of superior restaurants in Vancouver, stay away!

A really good vibe, mussels and Belgium beer being the attraction for us. We were on our honeymoon which we mentioned to the waitress in conversation, our plate was decorated with a chocolate message of congratulations - nice touch. Not the cheapest of places to eat but well worth it for such an enjoyable evening.
