I love your patio. My only regret is that patio days going forward are numbered. Sarah took care of us and she was fabulous.
Food was so mediocre. My steak was salty and chewy. Bluwater has way better seafood tower! Service was good. Ambience is so so. The diner at the next table had his radio on and was loud. Servers didn’t do anything. We definitely won’t be returning!
The seafood was fresh but a bit overpriced. The service was not satisfactory because our server wasn’t attentive and quite cold. We expected a lot more for the price we paid.
A refreshing menu of surprises-the cerviche shooter and causas to start and any of the main courses make a splendid dinner. Interesting cocktail choices and an endless wine menu finish off a great experience.
We recently had a wonderful visit to Ancora for cocktail hour.
The drinks were lovely and amazing food as well. Prices were very reasonable and the quality outstanding. We will be back again for sure!
Another fabulous experience on your patio. It’s becoming a bit of a habit.
My Husband and are foodies , we have travelled extensivly and have eaten at a variety of places from New York to Montreal and everything in between. We started with the Yam soup, it was rich and delicate Our main course was the steak with a side of mushrooms. Our steak was tender and juicy I enjoyed every minute at this Restaurant . The Sangria was amazing and their cocktail of the evening was wonderful has well . The staff were pleasant and we look forward to coming back to this restaurant again
Just excellent service and food. Brad is lovely and I highly recommend this location. The owner and manager were present and incredibly welcoming. The level of care for their patrons and their safety lets us relax and truly enjoy the ambience and food.
Everything was superb particularly the sable fish which was absolutely to die for. Manuela was a fabulous server.
Excellent and inventive cuisine. Amazing flavours and well worth the visit. Only negative was the Pisco Sour cocktail, which was not in the Peruvian Style and tasted like lemonade.
Absolutely amazing food, ambiance and service ❤️❤️
OVER PRICE FOR SMALL PORTIONS.
HAVE DINED MANY TIMES PREVIOUSLY. Will not be back for sometime unless things improve with portion size and corkage policy changes.
Dishes were excellent; lime/scallop shooter surprisingly good; sable fish exquisite.
We were a little chilly by the patio door due to the fires blocking the sun with smoke. When we asked them to shut the doors a little they got a little worried about covid measures which is totally understandable. They closed the patio doors a bit but we would have preferred them closed. Besides that awkward moment we had a wonderful evening.
My Favorite Restaurant In Vancouver, Just Flawless
Service was not professional. Did not expect to receive this type of service at this restaurant with high reputation.
Great service and the food was outstanding! I will definitely be back in the near future.
Consistently on a multiple visits not only interesting but delicious dishes. Attentive but genuine and not overly sycophantic staff. Great space indoors or now outdoors.
Beautiful patio with friendly staff and very efficient service. The food portions are very small.
Great bday celebration. Magnificent patio.
Lovely restaurant with lovely food. Great deck for a sunny day
This restaurant was a great surprise for our 66th birthdays! Yes, Two birthdays in fact! The setting on the north side of false creek lent itself for beautiful sunset views. The food was outstanding! We had the fish tower for 4! Each item was beautifully presented and so tasty! Then we each shared a delicious main plate of sable fish that was outstanding too! Even though we weren’t staying for dessert we were presented with a small dessert to share for my husband and I who share the same birthday! The service was fantastic: friendly, knowledgeable, comical and kind ! Even the mixologist came to our table to explain drinks and I tried the pisco sour that will now be my new go to cocktail! Thanks for making our birthdays so memorable! We will be back and will tell our friends about this great restaurant! 5/5
Food and service was poor.
I’ve been to Ancora several times - but I was extremely disappointed with my recent visit.
Amazing food, view and service. Couldn't ask for more.
Beautifully presented food, with the looks overtaking the taste (unfortunately). Spacious patio in a great location. Mediocre and perfunctory service (sadly). Lots of potential, but unrealised.
excellent service excellent food
Have known Dai since he worked at the Yew/Four Seasons. He continues his excellent service. Thank you Dai
Food was delicious, but I still left with a bad taste in my mouth.
I booked this restaurant for my birthday 2 months in advance - WITH a note that it was for a special occasion/birthday. When we arrived and checked in, staff seemed frazzled as though they had given our table away. We were told we could wait for a seat outside or have a table right away inside. As there are some beautiful tables inside that you can see the water at, it was my assumption that we would have had one of those tables reserved for us as the patio is first come first served. Instead we were sat at a dark, dingy table in the corner of the restaurant. This table was directly beside 2 extra storage tables and chairs, along with extra rolled up cutlery - the WORST table in the establishment. As we were offered sparkling or flat water, my fiancé politely asked if we could be moved - to literally ANY other table that opened up. You could tell the staff serving us fully agreed with us but management told them we couldn’t be relocated due to Covid policies. We had not even received water yet so this seemed extreme. Why could they not sanitize and flip our table? We were so hidden in a sad corner, that our water was never filled after the first glass. Great food, poor service. Very disappointing for a restaurant of its caliber. Did not feel celebrated, would not recommend and won’t be back.
Phenomenal patio, great service, delicious food
Loved everything about our experience here. It was our first visit and we will definitely be back!
Sable fish is nice and view is amazing. Will visit soon
The food was beautifully presented, unique and tasty. Enjoyed the scallop trio dish and fresh halibut. I look forward to returning the next time I'm in Vancouver.
Great hidden patio with delish good and prompt service!
My sister and her husband went for a lunch to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Amazing place to enjoy a beautiful afternoon and great food.
The staff was very friendly. It was a rainy evening so we missed the sunset and patio seating. We were assigned a beautiful table on the second floor overlooking the lower level.
Great menu but I found the food be salty.
For a friend’s birthday! A lovely spot down on False Creek, away from the traffic, with a view of the water and Granville Island on the other side. The food was delicious! Such an interesting mix of cultures: Japanese and Peruvian - made for quite amazing flavours. Loved the risotto!
Amazing food and fabulous location. Recommend for a special occasion or simply for fun.
My husband and I have dined here several times, but this was the first time since the Covid restrictions. We were seated on the patio and observed that the social-distancing was in full practice. All staff and servers were wearing face coverings. The food was tasty and fresh. I found that my entree was on the small side, but was very well prepared. Our server was attentive and pleasant.
food is very salty overall. on the pricier side but the food quality is not there
Start with the Glacier plate, Sable fish and Sashimi were excellent. Great for date night or special occasion👍👌
Adam is an amazing server and the food was so good. You must try the octopus.
