Excellent hang out

We stopped in for a late lunch. Excellent octopus, dips, wine and beer. Service can be a bit slow, but otherwise great.

We sat outside for lunch. The staff was friendly, the food was okay. We had tea cocktails which were popular, but I didn't love it.

I was able to secure a great patio spot to watch the Gastown Grand Prix bicycle races recently and it was pretty cool. As a group we ordered a bunch of drinks and some food. The menu was intimidating but I was looking forward to a good meal. I ordered the bison burger with fries and was expecting a gourmet... More

Great location in the heart of gastown. Weather was beautiful so patio was full and lots of pedestrian traffic. Service was good, and the food was delicious. The tri-tip salad is a must have. Prices a little on the high side, but expected for touristy spot. The shared sink in the bathroom was a little unnerving but cool!

beautiful day in Vancouver. great day to eat outside. great patio. sad to ruin such a nice evening because of poor service. waitress was rude and disorganized. lots of empty tables but many people waiting in line. we love Canadian service but just had a very bad experience at this location. much better alternatives around the block.

Our party of three enjoyed a great late lunch/early dinner at this pleasant restaurant with a fabulous kitchen. On July 2, 2015 we were in the historic Gastown district of Vancouver, BC, looking for a restaurant with a diverse menu and interesting décor and we lucked out with Chill Winston, which is located on a square in lower Water Street....

Omg we had the worst service ever and found out only afterwards that our server was in training and clueless. OMG she needed training and our experience was frustrating and annoying although the food, when we finally got it, was quite good!

Location is good, we had to wait 10 minutes for a table despite that many tables were vacant. We were sitting outside, plastic tables and chairs. Prices are too high for what you get. Side salad did not have any dressing, Mayonaise charged extra, Bison Burger was ok but still hungry after.

My wife and I opted for 3 apps for dinner and were not disappointed. Can't go wrong with octopus in Coca Cola BBQ sauce but the clear winner was squash wrapped in speck (bacon-like cured meat). Finish it off with a beer called creepy uncle dunkel.
