We were in the middle of a move from Cornwall to North Van and were without our kitchen. The burgers at The Local are NEVER a disappointment, so we ordered takeout. Service was quick; but when I got the food home, I didn't get the yam fries I had ordered. They gave us two (delicious) burgers; but two orders of... More

Parking in the street isn't easy so we always park across the street in the beach parking lot. It's a really busy place so come early or expect to wait. Whether you come to watch the game or for dinner, it's always super lively, lots of energy, fun place to spend a few hours. The food is always good, service... More

Popped into this pub/restaurant after a long day of exploring Vancouver. We chose a local Canadian beer each, they were cold & refreshing. The menu was good & prices not too bad. We ordered several entree (appetizer) size dishes for variety & enjoy everything. We had a lovely spot on the deck overlooking English Bay so we lingered a little... More

We searched and searched in Vancouver for nachos...just had a craving when we came upon this restaurant. The plate of nachos was SO big, we could not finish it. The manager was extremely pleasant, urging us to come in and give it a try. We were not disappointed. There is also outside dining and the atmosphere inside is quite unique.... More

We visited this pub after a walk on Kits Beach. It's a bit rustic looking but worth the visit. We were able to eat in an outdoor patio that was covered to keep us out of direct sun. We came for the veggie burger and we were not disappointed! The food was delicious!!! We'll certainly come back.

The place was a buzz on this weekend visit. Jam packed with mainly locals I think. All the best patio spots with a great view of Kits Beach and West Vancouver occupied. Inside is a bar scene and plenty of big comfortable booths. Good beer and a small wine selection. Food ok overall and I enjoyed a substantial steak sandwich... More

We have been in Vancouver for almost a month and sadly leave tomorrow. We first visited the Local early on during our stay just for a beer and it showed promise. Tonight, on our last night we went for dinner and it was fantastic. The server was excellent, the food was excellent, the beer was excellent and everything was delivered... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
