I was here for Dine Out Vancouver tonight. My selection of the three courses were the seafood chowder, coconut pacific cod, and creme brulee. Both the appetizer and entree were excellent; the dessert was a little on the sweet side, but overall I had nothing...More

As a frequent traveler from the states I miss my iced tea when I go out to eat in Canada. Fortunately this restaurant has very good iced tea.

A little to access next to the bridge from the airport if not familiar with the area. Inside is a pleasant surprise from the exterior. Staff very attentive to our group (8) needs. A Costco is nearby and you can get a $100 dining card...More

My experience has been fantastic. Exceptional service and great fresh seafood. I had oysters and the tuna tacos to start and followed up with the firecracker shrimp. Very close to the Weston wall so very convenient.

If you are going to the Richmond location then get onto Bridgeport Road from the highway and head west. The entrance to Boathouse Parking is after you've crossed No 3 Road and immediately BEFORE you get to the overpass
