Came upon this place when out discovering Gastown. Perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by where one drink turns to three or four and a little something to eat is needed. Very busy when we were there, but service great. Steak salad was delicious, pizza crispy with juicy tomato topping - pronounced "awesome" by 10 year old... More

This is a good place to sit and watch the world go by, so get an outdoor seat. We stopped by at 3pm for drinks and snacks. The food is good, fresh and tasty. However the service whilst friendly is not quick and we had to keep seeking out the waiters to order. It seems everyone is busy doing everything... More

Had great service here and there was some very interesting choices on the menu. Some things I had never heard of or even tried but that what makes this place fun. The service was very good.

You go to the Chill to chill. Decent but boring food, good service, friendly place to hang out and look at beautiful people. Time to start thinking about some menu innovation as I don't like that Deja Vu feeling too much.

Great location and topped off a beautiful Vancouver day, food was okay, fish tacos were done nicely. Hostess needs to get some personality. We had just come from whale watching so did not look our best, but not even a smile.

We stopped in here while wandering around Gastown. Great service, unique cocktails and the small plates we ordered were all well done and delicious. It has a large patio that the rain stopped us from enjoying, but we'd gladly come back on a return visit.

Stopped into Chill Winston while visiting friends in Vancouver. They have a large patio, and a cool atmosphere, and a great location in GasTown. They have a very interesting selection of cocktails that I've never seen anywhere else. Delicious! The service was good. We didn't try the food, but we would go back for sure.
