Had a great meal out on the patio last night with cousins from Vancouver. Excellent food and good service by the waiters. I had the fish which was perfectly cooked and OH had the burger which was plenty for him. They make all their own gelato and desserts.m the strawberry meringue was delish. Lovely ambiance and sitting looking at the... More

Stopped for lunch on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The patio is lovely but the staff were not all that attentive and the food was really poor. Chicken wings were so sticky - basically deep fried and dipped in liquid honey. Would have been nice to have wet clothes or extra napkins. The other two dishes were nothing special. Will try...

Three of us (two tourists and one local) went last Friday for lunch. The view is exceptional, the service was great, and the food was expensive and mediocre. Next time, I will return to the market at Granville Island, get better food, and pay much, much less. Even if we can't find a spot to eat outside.

I always knew the restaurant was there and finally tried it. I did not realize it was located on the second level above their casual restaurant with such a great patio too. The service was very good, nice finer dining atmosphere. We both enjoyed our fish dishes, cooked perfectly. We would definitely return.

We came here on the last night of our holiday and discovered by accident as it on its own in the harbour. We only had to wait short while for table. The food was really good and they do a wide variety of dishes. You can sit out or in, the outside overlooks the harbour so lovely way to end... More

Service was a bit slow. The mussels I ordered had a terrible taste and we couldn't eat them. Shared my husbands fish and chips that were ok but as with the mussels, overly priced. Left hungry and dissatisfied. Wouldn't go back.

Our waiter was incredibly uninterested and the food was overpriced and nothing special. We didn't get a check-in after our food was delivered and so I never got a chance to remind him that I had requested tartar sauce. He showed up well after we'd finished eating and took our plates and without further interaction showed up with our bill... More

My boyfriend and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice lunch while on Granville Island- this place was everything but. The combination of poor service, poor food quality and overcooked meals were not worth the $120.00 bill. Save yourselves the burden and eat anywhere else.

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.
