Date night with my wife and we are 5 blocks from our new favorite, Pair Bistro. We had been there last May when you could get a bucket of spotted prawns in season with a nice pinot grigio and enjoy a warm breeze. This time it was cold and wet January. Had to have the bannock with cedar jelly, and some Fanny Bay local oysters. The Desert Hills Malbec went down so smooth and couldn't wait for the lake trout. My wife did the seafood medley and soaked up all the wonderful juices. The smells and flavours of BC are divine and I highly recommend dropping in anytime and tasting why living here is the best.

This was our second visit to Pair Bistro and it was just as good, if not better, than we remembered. Fabulous menu, just-right, non-intrusive service, and lovely, intimate atmosphere. Surprisingly, it's difficult to find First Nations inspired menus in Vancouver, and Pair does this very well, using fresh B.C. ingredients. This restaurant is really a perfect little gem, as good in my opinion, as any of the top-rated Vancouver restaurants. Must try the Pear Martini!

The name is mis leading, because you get more than a pair of goodness ... The food, wine and ambiance weree awesome.

Todd and his staff were awesome, our server Jessica was one of the best we have had in Vancouver.

There were five of us, and we all were raving about which one of us had the best meal. Having five winning dinners was amazing.

Highly recommend Pair Bistro.
