It was my last night in Vancouver. Without even asking my friend for an awesome final dinner, she made a reservation here. WOW! I've eaten at many places in Vancouver. This is one of the best.
The place was busy for a Tuesday night. Lot's of people chatting, drinking, and eating. The four of us ate like kings, and drank like queens!!!
Here's what we ate:
4 - Sawmill Bay Oysters (appy)
3 - Canned Tuna (appy)
1 - Duck Breast (I ate this)
1 - Chicken (entree)
1 - Steel Head trout (entree)
1 - Tagliatelle (entree)
1 - Lemon Tart (dessert)
1 - Cheesecake (A nickname for my dog, jk)
1 - Victoria Gin and Tonic
1 - Glass Burrowing Merlot
1 - Glass Farmers Cabernet Sauv
1 - Half carafe of the Merlot
1 - Coffee
No one commented that the food was anything other than spectacular. I had one of the canned tunas. These little beauties are exactly what you think. Warm tuna that you mix together in the "can" then scoop it onto toasted bread. Brilliant. Then the duck was something awesome, out of the ordinary. Tender, not oily as duck can be, and not at all salty as I've encountered before.
She ate all the Trout commenting that it was delicious. He ate all of the chicken without commenting (translation:It was great). She ate the tagiatelle, commenting that she loved it. This ones a bit of a foodie so keep that in mind.
We split the desserts between the four of us. Yes, it was tough to NOT eat the whole lemon tart! It was tart for sure, lemony for sure. But spectacular!
As to wine, the merlot was really special. Not a typical merlot. Pleasant since I'm not a big fan of the varietal.
Folks, the service here was amazing. We were tended to regularly. It was a very very good experience and a wonderful final dinner in Vancouver.
Total bill plus HST and tip, $224.25.
Happy eating!! If you found this review helpful, please tap on the adorable little "yes" button below. Thanks!!!
