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.

We stopped off here for a drink only but the food that kept coming out the kitchen looked amazing. Less tourists in here more locals and more high end, very casual and relaxed atmosphere - love it

We dropped in on my sons recommendation after he'd been here in the summer. None of us were really hungry so we decided on a few drinks. After looking at the menu and seeing the food coming out we decided to move to a table and have something light. We had a meat and cheese board platter which was to... More

Centrally located in the heart of Gastown, Chill Winston would be a likely choice for any passerby or tourist. The thing is, that is all you're coming for. They have probably the biggest patio in the area, big whoop. The menu is both odd in terms of selection and well over-priced for the portion sizes and inconsistent quality. Drinks? Yah... More

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.
