Tucked in a corner of Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver is the Seasons Hill Top Bistro. I had lunch at the Bistro during my recent visit to Vancouver. The restaurant overlooks downtown Vancouver and has an intimate and cozy atmosphere. President Bill Clinton had entertained President Boris Yeltsin of Russia in this very restaurant during the Vancouver summit. A personally signed letter from Bill Clinton to the restaurant is proudly displayed at the entrance to the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: I had the most delicious main course of baked mushroom in Porthouse cheese. The mushroom was about 10 cm in diameter and was most juicy.
The food is great but the view is spectacular. Since Queen Elizabeth Park is at the highest point in the City of Vancouver, the restaurant has a wonderful view of the mountains and city skyline, as well as the beautiful quarry gardens below, all easily viewed through the large windows. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day.
Favorite Dish: I've never had dinner there but for lunch my favourites are the carmelized onion soup and the nicoise salad, which has ahi tuna in it. The dinner menu looks fabulous - very westcoast, with lots of local fish, a few asian-inspired dishes, but a good mix of other items for all tastes. Everything at the restaurant is served beautifully with care.
