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).

We loved the service, ambience, view of English Bay and the food! Although we did not stay in the hotel (but would like to next time we are in Vancouver), we came for dinner on a Sunday evening in early September. My husband had the...More

Comfortable atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy a drink, outside area available to enjoy street scene. Snack food available through most of the day. Wholesome breakfast with quick service.

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

THis is one of the loveliest spots to view English Bay and the hotel itself is quite fine and reasonable and away from the downtown. The restaurant and lounge draw many locals as well as hotel visitors. The demographic tends to be seasoned or senior...More

This is the icon of the Vancouver's West End. Many years have passed and she hasn't changed... Decor, location and the views of English Bay bring out the memories and nostalgia of the good old days...

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
