If you have a long layover while waiting for your flight, make your way to the Fairmont Hotel attached to the International/US Terminal and enjoy a delicious meal in comfortable surroundings in the restaurant or bar while watching flights take off and land through the floor to ceiling windows. We were there for a late lunch/early dinner a few weeks... More

My wife and I stayed overnight at the Fairmont YVR and had the pleasure of dining for both dinner and breakfast at the Globe. This review pertains specifically for our dinner experience however, the excellent service and food quality extends to breakfast as well. We dined on a Saturday evening. We were greeted and seated promptly by the window that... More

The globe restaurant offers a classic high tea you'll only find in England. With a wonderful selection of tea, delicious sandwiches and scones and pastries like no other, the beautiful view overlooking the airport is the icing on the cake (or the clotted cream on the scone if you may) with a 4 hour layover in Vancouver I went out...

I've been here a ton of times for the breakfast/brunch buffet. It is highly recommended and probably one of the best I've ever had. They have everything on the menu, and it is very Fresh. They offer maple butter--wow. Service is great; cappuccinos are pricey, but this is Fairmont, in an Airport, and in Vancouver, North America's most expensive city... More

The Globe@YVR is a somewhat hidden gem that locals need to know about it! Not just for airport travellers, if you live anywhere near YVR then this should be on your list of places to dine. We had one of our best culinary experiences ever. Our server Melissa was friendly and had in-depth product knowledge that helped with our dining... More

Stayed at the Fairmont at Vancouver Airport as we had an early flight out the next morning. Decided to try their Globe restaurant and enjoyed a light meal of smoked tomato soup and crab cakes. The soup was excellent, as was the wine and the service. The crab cakes were good but not spectacular. The furnishings and decor are high... More

It was such a relief to sit down and eat at this wonderful restaurant. We ate several times here because we stayed at the Fairmont for 3 nights. They are friendly to special diets. My husband is LACTOSE-INTOLERANT and told the waiters. They took good care of him. I am a VEGETARIAN and ate very well here as well. The... More

Our 3 (soon to be 4) year old started preschool so we wanted to do something special to celebrate this milestone. We decided high tea was kid friendly as the Globe offers a junior tea service. We arrived and were seated close to the windows so we could see the planes, arriving and being unloaded. The tables were impeccably set... More

Decor is chic and trendy, love the lighting and ambiance. Make reservations and request a table buy the windows for plane viewing. Fairmont service and cuisine top notch. We also enjoyed the BC featured Okanagan wine. Menu reflects the many cultures and spices around the globe, so is quite varied. We had Canadian Angus tenderloin and Marrocan lamb. Lovely dinner...
