About the restaurant
Specializing in aburi, or flamed-seared, sushi, the act of applying flame directly and lightly searing sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the seafood. Miku owner, Seigo Nakamura, innovated the Aburi concept by crafting specialty sauces using non-traditional Japanese ingredients to pair with each type of fish.

Located at the corner of Howe Street and Canada Place Way

The food and service was very good. The only drawback from our experience was the music level. It wad so loud that it was very hard to have a conversation and to hear one another.

Steakhouse
Coal Harbour
About the restaurant
Chop was created for people who love sharing, connecting and everything steak. We are proud to offer a menu that shares our commitment to sustainable beef sourcing, serving high-quality cuts of 100% Canadian beef. It isn’t just the meat that’s special – it’s also how we cook it. Our Montague broiler cooks at up to 1800 °F, giving a beautiful crust and flavour to every steak! We slow roast our prime rib in a humidity-controlled oven, keeping it mouth-watering and tender. And we put this level of care into each of our hand-crafted drinks, and from-scratch dishes, including plant-based and seafood options, with something for everyone to enjoy. All this quality comes with friendly hospitality in warm and energetic rooms. Open for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night!

About the restaurant
Tap & Barrel Bridges merges Bridges’ legacy with Tap & Barrel’s philosophies, bringing the best of both to this iconic location on Granville Island.

Enjoy some of the best views in Vancouver from our two-story restaurant with large waterfront patios. Our menu features next level comfort food with the addition of Bridges classics that have been reinvented with a Tap & Barrel twist.

Our waiter, Justin, was great. Only seemed to be there when we needed or wanted him. The birthday donuts were great.

Granville Island
About the restaurant
Located on the waterfront where Granville Island faces the city, guests can enjoy panoramic views across False Creek to the world-famous cityscape of Yaletown and beyond to the mountains of the North Shore.

The open dining room is relaxed yet refined, wrapped in spectacular floor to ceiling windows, while the lounge offers warm intimate surroundings for evening cocktails.

The award-winning seasonal patio (patio closed October to March) catches sunlight from morning to afternoon and is an oasis of calm, disturbed only by the occasional sound of boats making their way along False Creek.

Whether dining inside or outside the views are stunning!

The location is first rate, and the view is outstanding. A much more enjoyable dining experience in False Creek than anything Granville Island puts out. My one minor complaint is how they assign tables - in an empty restaurant with multiple open patio tables, we were made to feel like we had to eat inside. Once I asked, however, we were moved outside and shown an excellent time by our server, Jua.

Breakfast
Coal Harbour
About the restaurant
Since 1975, this popular breakfast, brunch and lunch spot has satisfied the hunger cravings of British Columbians thanks to a tasty menu of sweet and savoury treats. Arrive hungry and order the signature Dutch Pannekoek, which tastes similar to a North American pancake but is only slightly thicker than a crepe. Fun fact: the large pannekoek can be cut into 113 square one-inch bites. Popular toppings for this substantial meal include The Canadian with bacon, eggs, tomatoes and maple syrup, and The Trail Mix with trail mix, honey and hot cinnamon-dusted apples. Located in the Convention Centre West, the Burrard Landing location offers stunning views of Stanley park and the North Shore.

Our server Sam was amazing! We were never needing to wait for a coffee, water or anything we needed. If only all restaurants had staff like him. The food was prompt, tasty and there was a lovely view as well!
