“Great Place and good gluten menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I ate here with a group of about 15 friends.
We had a seating area upstairs which had great views of the stadium, Science world and false Creek. If the weather had been been better we could have sat outside.Still the inside was nice.
The ambience was really good,

The waitresses were very helpful and didnt have a problem taking orders for such a large group, and seperated the bill easily enough. My gf has a gluten allergy and was delighted to have a seperate gluten menu which included a burger and a bun. which apparently is rare to find. I opted for the Chicken Salad which was fantastic. Everyone in the group was very satisfied with the food they had and it was reasonably priced too. Beers came in at 7 dollars each, a bit expensive but for Vancouver that is about average.

I would recommend this plac. Its good to go for casual drinks and meal or even on a date.

If there is a big group of you I would make a reservation even if its a midweek night

“Great place for drinks on the patio - just eat before you go!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Awesome view of False Creek and downtown core from their patio (upstairs and downstairs). Good vibe - casual, up-beat without the pretentiousness of other (chain) restaurant and bars.

Beware, have tried the food on multiple occasions - couldn't even finish the mussels, fries came out FROZEN once, appies and most other things on the menu are way overpriced. The only thing worth trying is the PB & J burger.

Otherwise, a great place to go with friends on a sunny day!

“BC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Great place in the Olympic Village. Had lunch on the second floor patio, fantastic view over False Creek with BC Park and Rogers Arena directly across the water and able to enjoy the boats. They only serve BC wines and beers which is a great way to become more immersed in what the province has to offer. We had the blackened chicken burger and tap greens both excellent. Good atmosphere.

“great view, good food....mostly view & service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

We came here for late lunch on Tuesday. 3 of us sat on the outside upper terrace on a HOT afternoon. We had good beers and LOTS of food. nephew had grilled chicken burger and fries and fried pickle..first time I had taste of fried pickle...good, and better than I thought. Food was quick. I had Taps fusion salad wit prawns...yummy. Daughter had vegie burger and salad. She was happy. Great water view. Not cheap, but friendly and good and plentiful. We took the aquabus afterward....reviewed separately.

“Great location, great food, great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I've been here a few times - drinks after work, brunch and recently lunch. The service is always consistently good and they have a great kitchen. The food is really good and the menu has a good selection. One thing I like about this place is they don't spoil the view and ambiance with loud music. One of my new favorites.
