Celebrated our anniversary here with our son and his partner and thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening. Appetizers were delicious, entrees scrumptious. Wait staff were very attentive. Highly recommend.

The food and wine was truly outstanding from start to finish. Appetizer was tuna tartare. What an amazing combination of flavours. The fish was clearly super high quality. The flavours would explode in your mouth. Mains were daily catch, salmon and the Pacific halibut. All the mains were truly outstanding. Very tender and fresh flavours. The sauces were a perfect...

This restaurant was terribly expensive and the food was not terribly delicious.. The meat was not tender (off course, I am aware my friend should order fish and no meat here), but it is not an excuse for mediocre quality cooking. The staff was so nice, really friendly, helpful. However, my friend tipped a bit under 15% (that seemed fit... More

Went with my husband and our 23 year old son while visiting from Australia. we were warmly welcomed and taken to a window table with great water views. The waiting staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Every one of our meals were not only beautifully presented but quite delicious. Overall a wonderful night. Would certainly recommend it for a special occasion.

Top notch service with excellent service. Went to Five Sails Restaurant for our anniversary and definitely enjoyed there. Both me and my girlfriend ordered the seasonal 3 course menu. We both had squash soup with pumpkin seed for starter, and then we had slow poached salmon with infused whipped potatoes for main course. And finally we had lemon curd tarte... More

The food at the Five Sails is truly delicious and presented beautifully as well. The view from the floor to ceiling windows is breath taking. It is one of the most lovely restaurants in Vancouver and I highly recommend to visitors and locals equally.

This restaurant and its partner lounge have huge glass windows pointing out into the Burrard Inlet and across to The Northshore. It can be a beautiful view and entertaining too with seaplanes, rowers, seabuses and cruise ships coming and going. The service is excellent but it is expensive. Even the lounge fare however you may be tempted to stay awhile... More

Dramatically situated on the waterfront pier at Canada Place, this AAA Four Diamond award winning fine dining restaurant offers a breathtaking natural backdrop of the inner harbor, Stanley Park and Coastal mountains with gracious hospitality in an understated elegant setting. Proprietors Chef Ernst Dorfler and Gerry Sayers, a husband and wife team, bring years of experience to Five Sails skillfully fusing modern, continental cuisine with European influences to cultivate a memorable dining experience. Showcasing the mastery that made Chef Dorfler an internationally acclaimed Culinary Olympic World Champion, his signature mountain raviolis stuffed with fine herbs, spinach and ricotta then finished with a drizzle of hazelnut butter harken back to his Austrian childhood. The innovative "Catch!", a veritable cornucopia of seafood is enrobed in a lemongrass sauce perfumed with coconut milk and hint of chili, displays world-class passion and artistry. Sommelier, Ramon Fresneda, always brings impressive knowledge and unpretentious flair in providing optimal wine pairings from a list consistently honoured with the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence. The gracious service and exemplary dining combined with sweeping views of ships sailing off into the setting sun is an experience like none other.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
