Boathouse in Richmond hit the spot when my mother and I were looking for a nice place in Richmond in the middle of some post-christmas shopping. We had been to other vancouver locations but not ever the Richmond one, which is a tad tricky to find due to one-way streets, but is nonetheless very convenient.
fish was great (salmon and their daily special). Great service, perhaps helped by the fact the place was very quiet in the period right after Christmas. good wine list with lots of BC wines and unlike most places in Vancouver, they didn't overchill the white. Better yet, it was priced without much mark-up!
We enjoyed our view looking out the marina and boats, though on a rainier day it might be dark inside.
We were sorry not to have thought of it years ago and will be back.
