Rule 1. Never dine in a hotel restaurant. Well we hadn't done all our homework when we booked the restaurant but I did include with the booking for a nice table. 35 years married is worth celebrating. We booked Five Sails after looking at the menu and agreeing each course included something that we could eat. We caught a taxi... More

We had good food, but it was pricier than some other places we could walk to close by. We had to wait for it to open and the bar in the hotel was full.

Great view, great service and good food (dinner not fantastic but good). We celebrated our wedding anniversary there. The Sunday brunch is really good; lots of choice & live cooking stations. Recommend brunch.

Went to five sails for a romantic dinner and it didn't disappoint. The service was good, the food was great quality and the scenery was good. Be sure to reserve a table by the window so you can see the scenery. Your definitely paying for quality of good and not quantity. I would definitely return for special occasions as it... More

We have stayed in the excellent Pan Pacific Hotel before but that was way back in 2011 and again in 2012 while visiting Vancouver to begin or end a cruise to Alaska with Princess Cruises. Alaska drew us back again this past September and we were lucky to get a room in the PP and booked a table in 5... More

We had two parties of seven, so two tables. We all enjoyed our food. The staff was very good. The harbor views were great. This restaurant is in the Pan Pacific, but owned by someone else.

My daughter and I went there for their fixed price Christmas Eve dinner. The food was very good and the service was very efficient. The restaurant was at capacity so, very busy, and the staff were running off their feet. Our waiter was a professional but, not once, did he drop by to see if everything was satisfactory. I emphasize... More

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.
