A gorgeous location on beautiful Granville Island. As the waitress handed us our menus she told us a rather off colour joke. The elderly lady with us frowned - it was not at all appropriate. The appetizers came, and one was the wrong one. The waitress did not make too much of an effort to correct it, so we just... More

My family stopped in for lunch while touring Granville Island. The food was average but just a little steep (~ $75 American) for three lunch meals and three drinks (two iced teas and a beer). The staff was very hospitable and I would give another half star if I could, but it's really not deserving of a fourth star.

We were a party of five on Friday April 15/17. Having never been to this restaurant before we were anxious to try . The first item of note was the menu and how expensive it was. The sides were all extra and very expensive as well. Our server added to the "not wanting to be here" by interrupting our conversation... More

Visited here last week with wife and daughter for lunch. Daughter ordered chicken sandwich, found it to be tough (perhaps overcooked). Wife ordered a cheeseburger and was surprised when it was served that there was a rich cream sauce slathered heavily on top (not stated on menu) which she absolutely hated. She did the best she could to wipe off... More

Only been once but that was enough for me. Had the "fresh" halibut for lunch. Tasteless and soggy, hurtin for certain and very over priced for what I got. Yes it's GVI but I've had better fish n chips, well anywhere really. 👎

Riculously priced mediocre food.....ordered the roasted ling cod and apple cabbage, fennel slaw. Got a two inch piece of cod, no sides for $20! Slaw was 98% red cabbage...one piece of apple and no fennel $7. Should have sent it back but did not want to make my friend feel bad as she chose the restaurant. A 9oz glass of... More

This is a perfect place to enjoy a great view, some good drinks and some afternoon food. It was a cool drizzly day, but the inside of the pub is warm and cozy. We enjoyed mimosas and some dessert, which was all really good. The server, Gabby, was very attentive and made it a fun experience.

I'm used to casual good dining on the dock in the summer, simple, fresh and sunny. Today we were directed to the top floor, and enjoyed a great dinner with a white cloth setup. Good wine list, even had a decent Sancere, and everything we ate was very accurate. Service was very good.

We enjoyed a great meal and the ambience of Bridges celebrating a birthday dinner. Our server Jennifer really added to our enjoyment with her fantastic service and fun attitude, thanks Jennifer! Sorry about the tip error , you really deserved more than $0.30.

This place is in the heart of a chaotic and rambling marketplace called Granville Island. I wasn't impressed with the Island so maybe my opinion was a bit tainted. The service was very good! The food was mediocre at best. I ordered the chorizo and potato stuffed calamari and it was a real disappointment. I have no plans in going... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
