The restaurant is located with a view of the bay/harbour and it is a nice atmosphere. It is a nice place for a couples dinner or a business dinner. We were two couples going for dinner at the five sails. The menu has a good selection of meat and fish. The dishes were fine - but they were not groundbreaking... More

We were fortunate to have a table by the windows so the view over the water was a nice enhancement to dinner. I appreciated the attention to my request for gluten free options and our meals were both excellent. Service was very good and the sommelier was very helpful in making a wine recommendation.

My wife and I try to visit Five Sails at least once per year. The food is always great, and you can't beat the location. I do find it a little pricey, so we only go on special occasions....be sure to try the caramalized scallops, yum :)

A wonderful way to spend a beautiful Vancouver evening enjoying sunset on the outside patio. An eagle flew right over us as we finished our dinner. Wonderful place to take out of town guests.

Description
Dramatically situated on the waterfront pier at Canada Place, this AAA Four Diamond award winning fine dining restaurant offers a breathtaking natural backdrop of the inner harbor, Stanley Park and Coastal mountains with gracious hospitality in an understated elegant setting. Proprietors Chef Ernst Dorfler and Gerry Sayers, a husband and wife team, bring years of experience to Five Sails skillfully fusing modern, continental cuisine with European influences to cultivate a memorable dining experience. Showcasing the mastery that made Chef Dorfler an internationally acclaimed Culinary Olympic World Champion, his signature mountain raviolis stuffed with fine herbs, spinach and ricotta then finished with a drizzle of hazelnut butter harken back to his Austrian childhood. The innovative "Catch!", a veritable cornucopia of seafood is enrobed in a lemongrass sauce perfumed with coconut milk and hint of chili, displays world-class passion and artistry. Sommelier, Ramon Fresneda, always brings impressive knowledge and unpretentious flair in providing optimal wine pairings from a list consistently honoured with the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence. The gracious service and exemplary dining combined with sweeping views of ships sailing off into the setting sun is an experience like none other.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
