This is a pretty cool place in Gastown. Fabulous service coupled with a great food and drinks menu. Some delicious options for us vegetarians. Lovely place to spend a couple of hours over dinner. Chilled vibe with great music that wasn't too loud.

My husband and I popped in there for a few drinks when we arrived mid afternoon. Great vibe, chilled and relaxed, loved the music (not too loud). Comfortable seating, stayed for quite a while as it was just so nice. Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food.

I took 4 guests to lunch here the other day. For the most part, the food was good. Three of my guests had "planks" that were by all accounts well-prepared and tasty. One of the guests and I had the daily pasta special, which sounded good when described. Unfortunately, the pasta was quite over cooked and the flavours of the... More

Husband and I tucked in on a whim on a rainy cold night and made a meal out of their small plate offerings. Fantastically decadent, yet filling and satisfying. Highly recommended.

Came here for a small (4 people) birthday get together and was seated by the host with a warning of 15 mins before the kitchen closed (which we were fine with and just wanted a quick snack) but after about 12 minutes of waiting for the server, we snagged the host and asked her who was our server because we...

We were out celebrating in Gastown with our family and stopped at Chill Winston for a late meal. Loved the decor and atmosphere, brick walls, warm lighting, big windows looking out on Gastown. Our waitress was impressively knowledgeable and the food was great. Highly recommend!

we had some afternoon drinks and snacks, all of which were very nice. You can sit outside under parasols and watch the world go by. Chills Winston is in an excellent location, it is nicely decorated in industrial style and the service is fine. I will go back if i'm in the area.

We have been to this restaurant many times though never on a Sunday afternoon. The service was professional but friendly. The beer was the perfect refreshment after shopping all day and the flatbread pizza was just the right size for a snack for 2. Sit by the window and you can people watch for hours.

The food was good (we had the duck small plate and boar platter), but the drinks were fantastic! The True Believer cocktail is surprising and refreshing.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
