We had drinks before our dinner in the hotel restaurant and loved the variety of signature drinks from the hotel's past. The service was fun and friendly and we felt like regulars. Dinner was also very good, with vegetarian options. Be sure, if you order...More

What more can I say? The restaurant overlooks English bay in Vancouver and the beef tenderloin was the best beef I had during my Canadian holiday and we visited Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia

The restaurant is located within the Sylvia Hotel and has lovely views over English Bay. The food is good and but the service varied over the times we ate there. The breakfast menu is set (no buffet).

Good location next to the waterfront, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. We had a good time and enjoyed the food unfortunately I didn't make pictures.

While the view is excellent the food is absolutely terrible and a poor value. The service is ok but nothing special. Eggs were hardly cooked and I have been in more than once as a local and wanted to give them more than one chance,...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
