The hosts were very accommodating. My wife has a sugar allergy and they were able to modify dishes to accommodate her needs and yet give her a full experience. The food was delicious and filling. It is a restaurant we will return to when we go back to Vancouver.

Indigenous food done well. Although our table had a debate about the Indian Taco, I say it's not traditional to Canadian Indigenous cuisine, the others argued for it saying it's related to trade etc, however if you order this dish you will not be disappointed. The fish dishes are cooked to perfection and large portion. Bannock is superb! The only... More

This restaurant was on our 'must visit' list of things to do in Vancouver and it didn’t fail to disappoint. The restaurant is nothing remarkable in its layout or design especially against the amount of high end restaurants in Vancouver, but it does offer a very calm relaxed environment which is matched by the lovely staff and amazing first nations...

We found out about this unique restaurant from a First Nations tour guide. Arriving after 7:30 on a cold, rainy Monday evening in October, we were surprised that no other customers were there. Service was attentive and friendly. Our family group enjoyed elegantly presented dinners and desserts. The dishes we chose included salmon with risotto and winter squash, venison sausage,... More

Had the elk soap in bone broth, very tasty. Then I had the mixed green salad with wild sockeye salmon, the salmon was nicely prepared and melted in my mouth. Then I had the cobbler for dessert, also very good. The food quality was great, not priced if you're on a budget but good food.

Salmon N' Bannock has one of the most interesting menus I have seen in a long time. It's packed with staples from the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest. A lot of those (like salmon, no surprise) are familiar to a lot of people, but the restaurant prepares them in amazingly varied ways. It's small and cozy with friendly staff... More

The decor and the meal would have been acceptable at a much lower price. However, with meat that had little flavor (other than that of generic "meat") and halibut that had been badly frozen and had poor tough texture, very plain vegetables and a bannock that was really not a bannock but a biscuit, it was way overpriced and not...

I was here earlier this year and had an amazing experience. On the recommendation of a friend when I asked if there was any place in Vancouver where I could sample Indigenous cuisine, they immediately suggested Salmon & Bannock. I was not disappointed. The only criticism I have, is there are too many great things to choose from on the... More

Arriving on Monday, 8 pm, the restaurant had a vacant table. After waiting almost 10 minutes to the hostess, we were informed by her that she was instructed not to admit any additional guest, as there is a group in the restaurant and the owner/cook is not accepting more orders. After dining in hundreds of restaurants, it is the first... More

Stopped by this unique First Nations' themed restaurant for lunch. We really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the delicious food. The specialties of the house are fresh local fish and game. We had the signature Salmon Burger, a smoked salmon/beet/arugula salad, and the Bison "soup of the day". All we're tasty and served in generous portions. Service was leisurely paced,... More

Description
We are Vancouver's only First Nations restaurant. We specialize in wild fish, free range game meat and of course bannock, freshly baked daily. We use traditional ingredients that we prepare and present in a modern way. In our small casual bistro everyone is welcome as they are. In the spirit of First Nations' traditions, our intention is to provide a gathering place where the focus is on the people and the food. Inez (Nuxalk Nation) and Remi Owners

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
