We visited Chambar late in the evening and were wowed by the professional service and charming European bistro setting. I ordered the lamb shank and my brother ordered duck - both meals were excellent. Our wives ordered lighter fare but were equally impressed. We found time to share a chocolate ganache and aromatic coffees. Well done, Chambar, we will return... More

We have been here for dinner and brunch. Dinner was pretty good but brunch was worth coming back for! Definitely a spot we would try again. Service has been great and attentive both times. Dinner is fairly expensive however brunch is well priced. Great spot for a special occasion.

Chambar has always had a great reputation in Vancouver. Now moved into their new location, the decor and large open space now matches the level of their wonderful food. Highly recommend their moules frites, the special warm bread, the spiced nuts and the tagine. Server Sarah K was great...loved her drink recommendation ( an exotic name that I can't remember...

The service is less than acceptable. Our server was rude and snarky. Don't live in the area, but definitely would not recommend this place.

Chambar is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in Vancouver. The ambiance is wonderful, and the food even better. If you're a fan of French Bistro food, then Chambar hits the spot. If you've ever wondered what the fuss is all about with Fench cuisine, then this is a very good introduction, as well. Chamber is knows for their... More

Okay I'll admit I was not initially planning on going to Chambar... I did a yelp search breakfast in the area and the first hit was a place a few doors down. But the lineup there looked over an hour long. In contrast, we waited for less than ten minutes at Chambar on a Sunday morning around 10am, as long... More

We visited twice during our stay as we were so impressed by the breakfast here. Nice presentation, intelligent staff and quality fresh food. I had the granola which was huge - not over-sweetened- and came with lots of fresh fruit and a dollup of mild plain yogurt- super satisfying. We also tried the waffles ( they are not huge -... More

Close to Queen Elizabeth Theater and Rodgers Arena, so its always hard to get in on nights when these venues are happening..so book after 8.00 after shows have... More

My wife and I always like to treat ourselves once in a while to the mussels and duck gnocchi here. The mussels are always plump and juicy and the duck breast is always juicy. The portions are very reasonable as well! Overall, it's a great spot for a nice dinner downtown!

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
