Looked small and established, a look through the window convinced us it was the right choice.
Japanese welcome, different generation of obviously a family took us straight to the stools in front of the food providers.
Freshly made in front of us, pity it was only a lunch snack, on our next visit to BC, will liner longer to try different sections of menu and what others are ordering
Good Value for $-s
Favorite Dish: what we had as shown by photos
my three offspring had never had King Crab trio on their previous visits, i was fortunate enough to have enjoyed it on my previous two visits, and this was the automatic choice, being closer for us than the orignal Kingsway eatery. Despite the peak season was over, we still managed to catch the tail end, though locals say to small, too expensive and flesh not as deliocate nor as tasty as it should be.
Service was excellent, King Crab Trio and Steamed Rock Cod 4.5 / 5
Rock Cod 5/5, wish we had one less dish as we were a bit full.
Salt baked chicken 5/5, last dish to arrive on the table, so it was lunch the following day.
only complaint, it was pricier than i expected, alas a full satiated tummy is a contented soul, and the young ones tryuly relished the experience
Favorite Dish: King Crab trio allows you to savour the ocean, the delicate flavour and texture and the versality of crab under very different preparation techniques and cooking methods.
Steamed legs with gralic and ginger, the left over sauce is later used to toss into a Shanghai noodles,
the joint and bodies are cut into managable pieces then deep fired with a salty spicy dry crispy batter;
The restaurant has the best japanese food i have ever tried! Great restaurant layout that is very comfortable and group friendly. The food is cooked right in front of your eyes and is made into a cool show. If you are ever on Alberni street, try this place out!
Favorite Dish: Teriyaki Combination is by far my favourite dish. It is cooked perfectly and has delicious sauces. The portion is just right and very filling.
The restaurant is very upscale, but doesn't feel pretentious. The staff was so friendly and welcoming, and did a great job making recommendations on everything from drinks to food. I don't think one person was disappointed in anything that we ordered.
If you are looking for night life following dinner, there are plenty of bars in the area, as the restaurant is located in Yaletown, just know that they are pretty expensive.
Favorite Dish: They have a ton of delicious options and it was hard to choose what to eat. I asked the waiter about a few options and he helped me make my decision. I opted for the roasted bone marrow to start, and followed it up with the beef cheek ravioli. Both were fantastic. The portions were not huge, and after eating both, I found I was satisfied - not even interested in dessert (which is not common for me).
The Cafe Crepe on Granville is a great find where one can get a scrumptious bite to eat. An alternative to fast food, the food is warm and hearty but done with a flair, be it a panini, a bowl of soup or of course, a crepe. The atmosphere is a melding of a jazz club, a deli, and a coffeehouse. Strangely enough, it works!
Favorite Dish: Butter chicken soup!
Until recently there have been very few street vendors permitted in Vancouver but Japadog has been around since 2005 and made a name for its delicious and different hotdogs served with a variety of toppings. I can't walk or drive by with the window open without my mouth watering. There is always a line up but they work fast. They didn't used to have fries or more than two or three varieties but now they have a lot of varieties and you can make it a meal with a variety of fries - butter & shoyu, wasabi, curry, teriyaki etc.
Favorite Dish: The Kurobuto Terimayo is the quintessential favourite at Japadog. The pork sausage is amazing and it is topped off with the teriyaki and mayo (terimayo) sauce, fried onions and shredded seaweed. Sooo good!

Pices on high end, but worth spending ;-p
The restaurant is right in the heart of Vancouver you can sit and enjoy delicious sushi and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the pacific coast. I have eaten at dozens of sushi restaurants across the world and this is by far my favorite. the staff is absolutely brilliant, making you feel extremely welcome. I always go for the all you can eat menu saving myself from the difficult task of picking only a few dishes. Everything they make is made that same day nice and fresh even sauces so you never have to worry about poor quality food. On sunny days you can enjoy the balcony and get an even better view of the ocean. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
Favorite Dish: the tempura is delicious, the coating is never too much and the sauce is that perfect balance of sweet and salty. Don't bother asking for the recipe, I have tried and failed many times.
The waiters in this restaurant are the owner and her son, who is about 10 years old. They are Canadian-Indians. The restaurant is overlooking the ocean and it has a beautiful spot, basically across the museum and fronting the beach with a beautiful view.
We wanted to have coffee but ended up having our brunch there.
The coffee was freshly-brewed and being a Seattlelite, I can taste it right away. However the food that we ordered was just reheated in the microwave. We ordered different classes of food that was on the menu and we barely touched them.
The potatoes were soggy and they looked like they were L.O.(that's what I call left over!). The bacon was not good unlike those lean nice looking fried Oscar Myers' brand bacon I have on Sunday breakfast in my house!
The scrambled eggs were not cooked right. Golly, my daughter can cook better! Anyways, it was a waste of my brother-in-law's money. (Good thing, I didn't pay for my brunch!). The toasts were not done right.
I highly recommend this restaurant for their coffee but nothing else.
Favorite Dish: I just like their coffee. The boy came and refilled my cup three times! I just loved their coffee...I don't recommend this restaurant for anything else.
A popular spot with a line-up out the door during lunch time however it's worth the wait. Fresh ingredients, friendly service and always a special to try out.
You line up, pay at the counter and then they call your name and bring your food to you. It's not fancy but it's good food. It can be difficult to find seating but the good thing is people are in and out quick and if it's a nice day, I take mine to go and enjoy it outside.
One of my favourite parts about this place is it's all gluten-free and they don't even have wheat flour in the whole place. It's not a big deal to some but for those who can't have it and get sick, this place has always been safe for me.
Grab one of the specials as the tacos are small and four of them is perfect for most people. The staff are always sweet to me even when it's crazy.
A middle range to upscale restaurant among blocks of other restaurants and shops built into old receiving docks and warehouses. A trendy sort of neighborhood. A really nice outside dining area with a canvas cover for rain or sun. There were an abundance of hostesses who appeared to treat everyone like long lost cousins. A very relaxed atmosphere. THEN add the really great food and drink twists on each dish for foodies. Wonderful.
Favorite Dish: Lobser benedict! The sauce was perfect and there was plenty of lobster and the 2 are completely distinguishable and do not overwhelm one another. Flawless poached eggs and a nice presentation.
This restaurant has three locations and serves comfort food. Soups, sandwiches, stews and macaroni and cheese are just a few of the items on the menu. Great place for lunch. They have some outdoor tables for the nice days in North Vancouver.
Favorite Dish: I had a fabulous soup and grilled sandwich combination.
This a small greek/pizza establishment on East Broadway. It's a take out delivery restraunt with a few seats in the actual restraunt. They have a great roast lamb, and thier pizza is tasty. Dont want a whole pizza? They have pizza slices available in the restaurant. We lived close to Dallas Pizza for years and it was a regular destination....
Favorite Dish: Roast Lamb dinner is their best dish.
Cuppa Joe's Coffee Shop
3744 West 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC * (604) 224-3687
A great little local (but Vancouver chain) two story coffee house right off of 4th, conveniently located in Kitslano bordering Point Grey bordering Jericho Beach. Just a short jolt of a walk from the Vancouver HI. Free wifi internet just ask for the password at the counter. Great chai, pastries, and coffee. A Starbucks alternative. Carries organic and free trade. Always good music and apparently has great beer on tap (I'm not a beer drinker so can't comment on that one). Staff and regulars are very friendly. Its an artsy joint with good music. Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
We had visited Stanley Park late afternoon and were walking back to our hotel on Robson Street when we saw a sign for the Ciao Bella as we crossed over Denman Street. We both agreed Italian food would be ideal and when we arrived at the restaurant at 6:45pm all tables were taken.
We were told to wait 5 minutes whilst a table was prepared and were soon seated with a window view. It is a large restaurant with at leat 40 tables and an extensive menu. The reason for the full house was it was Tuesday Half Price Pasta and the restaurant was full with local residents.
We started with a shared plate of Antipasta complete with a large variety of meats etc etc. It was very nice and large enough for a main meal. We followed with lasagne and a pasta dish, plenty of Italian bread and sparkling water. The meal was fantastic and at half price it was an unexpected bonus.
I recommend you phone to reserve a table. The Antipasta was $15.50 and the mains at half price were approximately $10 each.
Favorite Dish: All meals were excellent.
