Great ambiance

We walked in on a cold chilly December evening hoping for something filling and delicious to eat. We appreciated that they let our large group of 20 in without a reservation. The restaurant is warm and inviting. The ambiance is great, too. It has a young, hipster-like feel to it. The menu is... read more

This eatery is situated in the Gastown neighborhood. You can't miss it because it's a few steps from the famous steam clock tower. The vibe here is cool and casual. We enjoyed the service and the quality of the food.

It looks cool for sure. It has the hipster atmosphere going on but thats where it stopped. The drinks are expensive, we ordered poutine and both thought it rated pitiful. Small portions and a challenging menu. We actually left after the appy and a drink with a $40 bill. Was not going to spend $22-29 on a main if the... More

They are totally overpriced for what you get. My partner and our girlfriend ordered the waffle with chicken. When it arrived it came as 1/2 a waffle each and we thought they must have ran out of waffle mix so they just cut it in half...I still paid for 2 full meals at a price way over average for them....

Great patio right in the middle of Gastown. Food is good if you order the right item. Nightlife is hoping and often have live music.

We had a business drinks meeting and Chill Winston was suggested to us. This is a great spot. The service was great and we had a long day so we decided to have a late meal. I had the Fried Chicken and was surprised at how good it was. I had a beer as well and it tasted like beer... More

Over the years, certain parts of Vancouver's dinning and cocktail scene have become more popular. There is no doubt in my mind that the evolution of Gastown and it's popularity come's via the very popular anchor tenant, Chill Winston. I visit Chill Winston on my monthly visits to Vancouver and have never been disappointed. They provide a unique food menu... More

We ate here on the evening of our arrival. and where happy with this nice location and chill atmosphere in Gastown. Service was a bit slow, like all places in Canada wich are overstaffed.

Trendy patio. Terrible waiters and waitresses. They don't know a thing. Stick with beer and avoid the wines, they are overpriced and served at the wrong temperature.
