Good food, good value

nice spot in Gastown. Very lively, popular. Great for families and those on a budget. Not gourmet but a good meal. Very friendly servers.

We had a great table, great waiter, great meal! We loved the decor and atmosphere. We had lunch special which included hot bread with 2 kinds of butter, soup or salad and dessert. Very reasonably priced and more than enough food to fill us up. Ask for Tyler. Located in the Gastown area.

A fun setting, easy to get to in the Gastown section of the city. Very friendly wait staff. Nice menu for families at reasonable prices. Large, fresh portions of food served with little extra flair on the plate. Very fresh bread and butter keeps coming.

Stopped here for lunch, it was busy but we were seated quickly and efficiently. For 14 bucks (about £7 at current exchange!) I had bread with choice of butters, clam chowder, and and seafood lingune. OK, so it wasn't fine dining but it was good and wholesome, as well as plentiful - nearly didn't have dinner that night!

After a tiring day sightseeing around Vancouver, ending up in Gastown, we were delighted to fall into this excellent Italian restaurant. Food great, service great, several extras thrown in for good value. Haven't tried any other Gastown restaurants, but I'd be surprised if there are any offering a better combination of good food, good value and good service.

I love this place. Always has a great family feel to it with their all in set dinners. The sourdough bread and the garlic whipped butter is excellent. Great selection of dishes to choose from and the ice cream at the end is excellent. I always put time aside for a visit when in Vancouver (or any place thta had... More

Quite a queue for tables but we didn't have to wait long. We both had Seafood Alfredo and it was superb. My sangria cocktail had loads of strawberries in it. Service was good and I loved the look of the place. No wonder it was busy!

A must when visiting Gastown. We had a lovely lunch sitting outside. Excellent service, great food. The restaurant is spacious with a trolley inside the dining room. The outdoor seating is spacious. The atmosphere is ideal with umbrellas and a gated seating area.
