We were looking for a lighter lunch after spending morning doing see wall walk in West van. This location is two blocks from our hotel and didn't disappoint. We had the Tuna Tataki with Papaya slaw and Steelhead Ceviche with a house salad and bevvies (Feenie's own label Gewurtz/Chard blend and house Sangria which was delicious. Very crisp, fresh, clean flavours with a definite dose of oriental. Service was good and seating outside with heaters very comfortable. Highly recommended.

We were visiting Vancouver and this restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who used to work in the Downtown area. The restaurant is a big greenhouse like building with a high roof. It seemed to have a sophisticated look, with lots of young and beautiful people sitting near the bar or outside. Certainly if I was a single man working in the City, it would be a good place to go on a date. We got shown to a more family friendly quiet booth upstairs, with a good view of the restaurant below. The menu was very good with a good range between casual dining (burgers/sandwiches) and more sophisticated dishes. We were easily able to find suitable dishes for two adults and two rather fussy teenagers. I had the Soy Dijon salmon which featured a perfectly cooked piece of moist steelhead salmon on a bed of whole grain barley. It was a light and delicious dish. My wife was not very hungry, so had the tuna tataki, which was another delightful dish. The kids also enjoyed their meals, so we had a rare restaurant visit where everyone was happy. In fact so much so, that we made a return visit a few days later so that my wife could have the Salmon dish! We had very good service on both visits, and the food arrived promptly. Coming from the UK, where good medium priced restaurants are hard to find, we found that the meals were excellent value, so overall a definite recommendation from us.

On the last day of our stay in Vancouver - a Sunday - my wife and I had lunch at the popular Cactus Club Cafe Bentall, located on Burrard Street just around the corner from the Le Soliel Hotel. We had passed it during the week and had usually found it crowded at lunch and dinner time. The personnel at the restaurant were friendly and attentive and the food was very good. We each had a Pemberton Pilsner, a local beer, and my wife had a grilled chicken salad and I had a sirloin, prepared as requested, with vegetables. Both were very good meals. This is a large restaurant with a good portion devoted to a bar area. This was a pleasant dining experience. The Cactus Club Cafe is a popular Canadian restaurant chain.

Sat in the lounge while in Vancouver for a conference. Good food, good service and generally a good experience. Would definitely go back to try out more of the menu.

Went for lunch. My daughter and I were served by Theresa who was just so sweet and accommodating. We wanted to share a salad and their prawn spaghettini. No problem! Even brought in separate bowls. Tasted as good as it looked. Pic supplied! Definitely recommend. Went back tonight - it was pretty loud as its Friday night but same friendly staff and good food.
