I ate here with a group and the service was quick and efficient. It is nice decor and bright inside. The food is good pub style food. My friend really enjoyed her deep fried pickles! They offer gluten free buns for the burgers too which is nice and the bun was good. It held together and was moist...unlike many gluten... More

Needed lunch and was walking past this place and decided to head in for a beer and a bite to eat. I'm glad we did. The service was quick, the ambiance and decor was nice. The food was great and came out quickly. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was they didn't have the beer I wanted... More

This is a nice pub / restaurant with a good atmosphere. The food and drink is good, however the menu could be more vegetarian friendly. I had a nice veggie burger there on our first night in Vancouver and decided to go back to try something else later in the week. The other potential vegetarian options on the menu all... More

Nice view, good enough food but not great. The deco is unique and one would feel good to sit there in a group or just by yourself.

Very good lunch at Elephant & Castle Pub. We thought that the food was very good and that they had a nice selection of beers. We were glad that they offered 10 ounce sizes if you wanted a smaller beer. It's a great place for a lunch if you are looking for british food. Parking we had to pay for... More

We were shown to a booth and chose local cultural cuisine to eat at this terrific pub. It was a friday night and very busy but this did not stop friendly and efficient service. We really enjoyed the British/Irish ambience and enjoyed our beers and food immensely.

I've only had a chance to eat here once but it was great. We showed up with 8 people with 4 being children. The staff was great to accommodate and the food was awesome.

We stopped in on the night the Cubs won the world series. But it was not that busy, lots of empty table. My partners Salmon was over cooked and dried out and my Shepherds pie was crumbly and dry as well. The beer was cold! I would not stop at any Elephant & Castle again.

This is a pub chain, and it is what you'd expect from such an establishment. I had a burger, and my wife the daily soup. My nephew had the same burger as me. The soup went back, as the 'flavour' was off, and replaced with onion soup, which was O.K. The burger was very good! The atmosphere was somewhat average... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
