Great time

As they are attached to the Best Western Sands Hotel, we got to eat a few times in there. Friendly staff, great food, lots of food choices, well stocked bar and great hours. Worth a return trip.

It was a dark rainy night. However, it was cozy and warm in the comfortable Bayside Lounge, with the view of the twinkling lights from the ships sheltering in English Bay. Daphne Roubini's full richly textured voice, poured over us like a soothing unique unction, accompanied by the mellow sound of her Black Gardenia vintage jazz band.(Their next performance: March...

Was not a comfortable venue and way too pricey. Beautiful views of the ocean, but could not wait to leave. Had a "tapas" menu but food is made in the next building, wrapped and brought over. Is not true tapas just smaller items from there main menu next door. Your paying more for less food.

We had lunch here and unfortunately one of our group needed assistance (nothing to do with the food!! A pre-existing condition) the staff were amazing and the food/drinks were great. We ate outside and the views were lovely. Can't wait to go back! And thanks so much to the staff for looking after us with medical requirements. Greatly appreciated.

Set on the corner of Davies and Denman, this quiet lounge has a 180 degree view of English Bay. The food was delicious, fairly priced, and the service was A-One!

Nice location overlooking the bay to watch the sun go down. We enjoyed a few cocktails and other drinks. The service was good. The daily special was a winner too - 10 tasty chicken wings for a great $3.90 value. Our group got 3 plates of these. The calamari was great - tender and succulent. The butter chicken flat bread...

This is the kind of place to go to when you want to sit comfortably and enjoy the view. It's on the second floor and is at the foot of Davie and Denman Streets, with windows around two sides. We received a warm welcome from the bartender/hostess and were told to choose where we'd like to sit. Everyone, staff and... More

Only ate a small dinner that was unremarkable. It was the staff and clientele that made an impression on me.

The view is absolutely amazing there and the staff is super friendly. The bar tender there makes one of the best old fashioneds in the city and that's saying something ! They are open late which is a bonus.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. View is amazing. It was quite noisy in there but obviously that would depend on whose there at the time. Started off with a cocktail and was disappointed that it was one of those icy slushy ones which I wasn't expecting. Switched it wine, the Rothschild Sauvignon Blanc was excellent. We didn't eat but... More
