A Great Fish Restaurant in Stanley Park, Vancouver BC

Went in January on a blue sky day, the combination of history, location, panoramic views was a perfect fit. It was the SERVICE and the tastes of well presented meals that made it a west coast gem. Firstly make reservations, not to say you won't get a seat of you don't but I liked the prompt reception and maybe we... More

parking is limited and the lot is VERY frequently monitored. make sure to make a reservation as they seem to host a lot of large groups / events and turn you away if they are booked. the fish and seafood are the foods to stick to. outside seating is extremely pleasant, weather permitting. the pricing is in line with similar...

It's an escape from the City but it's within Stanley Park so you're not driving kilometers out of your way. The cuisine is all local and seasonal. The meals are marvelous. Not cheap but not outrageous either.

The Fish House has long been a winner with us. We splurged last trip...my husband had the surf&turf plate which was good tho served a bit strangely. The huge lobster sat atop the purée potatoes and other veggies...a bit awkward. Still it was tasty. My salmon was excellent with sides of purée and sautéed spinach with mushrooms...very delicious.

Beautiful location, lovely quiet room, attentive yet unobtrusive service and wonderful food. It is hard to beat this lovely classic restaurant. The Earl Grey creme brulee is SO good! If I have one tiny quibble it would be with the shape of the salad bowls. The "off kilter" design looks very pretty but is awkward for cutting lettuce leaves which... More

Beautiful spot but the food, meh. Overpriced, and average. Greasy fries on the side. Had lunch there a couple of times. Used a group on - maybe that's why the portions were tiny too.
