We had a lovely lunch outside looking across the bay to the mountains. We both had fish mains which were very tasty and beautifully presented. Staff were attentive without being over the top

I went to this restaurant for a dinner with my friend while visiting Vancouver. Coal Harbour is one of my favourites and this restaurant is set on the water just in the middle of this beautiful place. We were lucky to get a table on the outside patio (but it is better to book it ahead), the restaurant inside seemed... More

We were greeted warmly and looked after really well by all the staff here. We sat out on the decking area and our waiter was very good in letting us change places three times during our meal (not their fault at all - just got too hot for me in the sun!!!). The service was top class and the food... More

Most definitely helped by a fabulous location, this is one of my favourite places to go when in Vancouver. Great staff (always friendly despite being busy) good service, great food and a lively atmosphere. Views are lovely over Coal Harbour and there is always the great bar to either start or finish the evening.

I LOVE this restaurant! All the staff welcome you when you come in. We sat outside and had an amazing view, the mountains, the ocean, and the boats. WOW! beautiful. The menu had lot of healthy choices and full of other options. We brought our friends for lunch and they loved their experience. Cannot wait to go back.

The service was excellent for group of 8. Place was packed but server treated us very well. Food was great, my wife and I shared a bunch of appies - only thing we could be critical in was the stir fried Boccolini was overcooked. The fish tacos were great as was the tomato/tuna salad. Highly recommend this place for your... 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.
