Spectacular view and good food

This is a well-known restaurant in West Vancouver. It has a spectacular view looking over Burrard Inlet and back to Vancouver. The food is good, with a strong emphasis on seafood. The alder-grilled salmon is a speciality.

Good service,pleasant surroundings, great food. The only negative I can mention ( and I must say I had to really think hard to come up with one) is that I have tasted better Caesar salads. Everything else was perfect. I, personally ordered the Halibut, and I must say it was excellent.

I was lucky enough to be taken here for a meal in March - what a beautiful view! The food was delicious and service helpful and friendly. I really enjoyed that whilst this is definitely a more upscale restaurant, there is little pretense and it is a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

We had the salmon trio, Cesar Salad, wine, desert, and coffee. Total cost of meal was $136 Canadian. The view cannot be beat, the ambience is very nice, and the hostess was extremely accommodating. The food has potential, but we would probably not order the Salmon Trio again. We have tasted better. The deserts are to die for, pricey but... More

Best view in all of Vancouver! You can see Stanley park and bridge from this location. It is a bit pricey but the food is very good. You are able to dress up or casually which is nice. My husband is not a fish eatter so he has the steak which was extremely good.

The service was very good. The atmosphere was great. The view was phenomenal. I shared the fish tower. It was a bit pricey at $100, but you get a great assortment of fish and everything had very good flavors. Just short of a 5 start restaurant.
