Excellent service, gorgeous views, lousy food! Felt mass produced and buffet area was messy. Young staff trying their best. The $65 price ticket (included tip & gondola) did not deliver as far as food quality.

Hi We are visiting Vancouver 1st - 5 June 2017 wanting to visit Grouse Mountain,and have dinner at the peak. Do you need bookings and if so how far in advance should we book?? Also best ideas on public transfers from Downtown Vancouver, i understand there is a shuttle bus that runs, but not sure of its schedules. Thanks
