About the restaurant
Ugly Duckling takes its inspiration from the intersection between Coastal BC's magical landscapes and the rich cultural heritage of North America’s oldest Chinatown. We offer experiential dining built around two promises: to serve you only those things which we have made by hand; and to work really, really hard to make you smile. We can't wait to welcome you.

We had a date night at Brickworks and really enjoyed it. The seating was comfortable (high table) with enough space for 2-4 people to dine. The waitress regularly checked if we had everything we needed, and the bison was out of this world. Wonderful experience. Will return

About the restaurant
Founded in 2006 as Mahony & Sons, we operate two locations in Vancouver at the Convention Centre West and False Creek and recently transitioned to our new ‘Mahony’s Tavern’ brand that better reflects our long history as a cornerstone of the Vancouver hospitality scene. Both locations are prized for their expansive dining rooms, private group spaces and patios, all of which offer views that showcase the picture-perfect views of the ocean, mountains and cityscapes for which Vancouver is famously known.

Perfect for any group occasion — or no occasion at all — our new food menu focuses on classic West Coast fare and offers a wide array of shareable snacks, seafood dishes, artisan hand-tossed pizzas, fresh salads and bowls and gourmet handhelds. Our beverage menu highlights some of the very best craft beer and wine from BC’s own backyard and well beyond its borders, in addition to classic cocktails, ciders, seltzers and more.

Great meal in Revelstoke. Fun atmosphere, but can get quite loud for a small place as there is little to muffle sound. Menu was very creative and truly enjoyable. It's a 3 course prix-fixe and each of the courses was well done.
