Our favourite spot because the menu has variety,the service is very good and the food quality/presentation is of a good standard.To add to this, a lovely setting. The outdoors seating area could do with some "freshening up"....soon!

I ordered the sablefish which was oily and heavy--not what was described by the waiter. My husband ate it for me along with his own meal which he seemed to enjoy. The clam chowder was tasty. Service was very good. Relaxing meal on the patio.

We stopped in after riding around seawall of Stanley Park. I am always on the quest for good crab cakes after experiencing them along US Eastern seabord in my early 20s. I found them at the Fish House! Just the right outer crispness yet soft moist inner texture bursting with flavour. Divine. I also really enjoyed the non- alcoholic drink... More

The Fish House in Stanley House is a popular tourist spot and my family's favourite for Mother's Day and special occasions. The food is decent and the prices are reasonable for such a setting. Unfortunately, I had an unpleasant experience there this Mother's Day. Our server John Snel was cold, unwelcoming and sloppy. Since it was a buffet, we just... More

We visited the Fish House after several years recently. If you are driving, please call and ask for detailed directions. We landed up quite far from the actual entrance of the restaurant (empty sign post hanging at the entrance) and had to walk. I chose the Halibut which was the first of the season and was surprised at the size... More

Rainy day brought us indoors for lunch at about 2pm. I had a salmon burger that was the best I've ever had (I am from Tucson, though). Side salad was nice. Great service.

After riding the horse carriage in Stanley Park, and a brisk 1 1/2 mile walk over to the restaurant, we were hungry! What to get of the Happy Hour menu? One of each- what else? And wow. That decision didn't waste our money AT ALL. It was good for four of us, and included shrimp, mussels, crab cakes, and other... More

We went for a birthday brunch. Great good! Very mediocre service. Wonderful setting, but when there is so much choice in Vancouver, your service needs to be exceptional. The servers were more interested in socializing with each other. Most restaurants acknowledge birthdays and even give a dessert. Nothing from our server. At one point the busboy dropped someone's meal. He... More
