My favourite gastown patio

Great location for cruise passengers exploring gastown. They have a huge patio which is perfect in the summer. They just launched their new spring and summer menu - the three dip appetizer is an easy share as the dips are huge and they will bring you more chips if you run out. Cocktails are... read more

Loved the decor, feel of the place, location, patio and uni-sex washroom. The menu had several options and all 3 courses were delicious. Service and staff were great.

I have been in Vancouver for a month so far & this was probably my most disappointing visit. The location & setup is great, unfortunately the food & pricing isn't. The wine & alcohol list is one of the most expensive ones I have come across so far. The food portions are small & my macaroni & cheese dish was... More

15$ for two barely round eggs, no salmon, .5 piece of an orange which they described as "side of fruite". Its a joke and not worth 30$ for a couple. I can make a better benny at home in 5 seconds.

This place had a big packed patio, so we sat inside. The décor is very hip and appropriate for gastown. The menu was fun - I'm attaching a photo. My date had the pork platter which was interesting - one version of the pork was very tasty, and the others were fine. I had the mac and cheese which was... More

Went in on chance as we were outside and it was raining... Who'd have thought it rained in Vancouver. Room is very cool/chic/hipsterish I think. Any way I'm not cool or chic or a hipster. But I found it warm and inviting with lots to attract your eyes to look at. Friendly greeting with explanations on the specials. We had... 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

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 quite limited, but still has great selections.... 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....
