Fet's Kitchen has a couple of different burgers on offer, so Burger Biters decided to check out their Classic Deluxe. The beef patty scored 3/5. It lacked seasoning and was slightly dry with little caramelization on the outside for flavour and crunch, and had the consistency of meat loaf. The ciabatta bun (2.5/5) was lightly toasted on the inside and... More

Had the veggie burger and a Kentucky Mule (Moscow Mule with whiskey instead of vodka). Very tasty (both)and a great simple side salad. The waitress was attentive without being intrusive. Able to get a seat at a table without having to sit at the bar; as a solo diner I hate sitting at the bar as I typically find it... More

We were trying to unwind after a looooooooong few days of work and my bud said let's try going down Commercial Drive. It's the new place to be! So...I says...OK! Who am I to argue with restaurant and bar alley! Since we already had dinner, beers at another joint, why not top it off with Whisky! This place is da'bomb!... More

Great food, & drink. We had a wonderful dinner just before Christmas. The Whisky ribs were great I highly recommend you give them a try. Great bar with the level of service you expect in Vancouver .

Scotch eggs are amazing. I love the steak dinner, so tender and juicy covered in melting butter, I keep going back every week for it. I just tried the fish and chips for the first time and it is amazing - I wish they had halibut but the batter is so fluffy and crispy-amazing- all seafood is oceanwise. Very good... More

We were a group of 7 for early Saturday evening dinner. The setting is very impressive and the welcome and initial service prompt enough. The food was reasonable, a little unexciting. As we finished eating, we were ignored even though they weren't full - we would have happily ordered another round. A bit pricey too.

I enjoyed the authentic jambalaya that was spicy enough not to need any additional seasoning. When the waitress delivered our meal, I asked for a bottle of the house hot sauce, even though she assured me that it would not be needed. The waitress was right. It was one of the best jambalayas that I have outside of New Orleans.... More

I'd highly recommend It here. We came for dinner and brunch and both were so good. I had the vegetarian burger and it was one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had. Likewise the French toast is brilliant. The service was attentive and friendly without being pushy and the waiter at dinner even recommended a great place to get... More

This restaurant is located on trendy Commercial Drive in East Vancouver. It has a small cosy atmosphere. Outstanding is the whisky inventory. 750 types of whisky are well described in a very complete manual, which could take considerable time to study and are well arraigned in an impressive wall display. We had a whisky sour to start our meal off... More

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighbourhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
