we had dinner for 8 people and everyone was raving about the food and service. Our waiter, Riley, was professional and courteous while also suggesting good wine pairings. The gnocchi was authentic Italian and the grilled octopus appetizer was absolutely delicious. The 2012 Carpazo Brunello...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
