A place to return again and again….

Great food, lovely low-key ambience, nice friendly service. What's not to love? We've been here a couple of times and it never disappoints. Frites with mayo…..ahhhhhhhhh…..

Met the kids here for brunch Service was good. The crab cake Bennie was awesome! The high bar-stools were a tad uncomfortable and the tables are small. Barely enough room for your plate, utensils, and beverage. But the eggs were perfectly cooked!

We found this place by accident, but it was the best misdirection of the day. Great atmosphere friendly staff and the food was fresh organic and full of amazing flavours. The cost was affordable and within Vancouver standards. Staff was very attentive and had great recommendations for the whole group. When they run out of a menu item that is... More

My fiance and I are at The District once a month or more. The MUSSELS are fantastic and highly recommended. We order them every time we go but usually mix of our flavors, you can't go wrong. My personal favorite is the Red Curry:) They also have some great wine and micro-brews passing through. Staff is awesome and it is... More

We have visited this restaurant several times and have always had a great experience. They have several micro-brew beers on tap with many imported bottles available as well. The mussels are awesome to start. For 2 people, order the 1.5lb order. The last time I visited, I had the chicken and brie sandwich...... soooooo good. The staff have always been... More

If you plan to have lunch be sure to make reservations. There is limited seating and it fills up fast. The menu is definitely Belgium/Holland style food and the Patat Freit are to die for. Be sure to order the Mayonaisse sauce that goes with them. The Croque Monsieur was sold out by the time we got there but the... More

Visited there on Friday night, and was seated promptly which was great. It took over 20 minutes for a server to acknowledge is, another 10 for us to be able to order drinks. We Ordered the tenderloin (rare) and chicken. I got my well done steak and my friends chicken was so dry it was hard to cut. Considering we... More

A great wine list, lots of brewskis, and a vivacious atmosphere make this a great choice for those who don't mind a fairly noisy place, as long as the eats are great.
