Lovely view, great service, beautiful presentation. BUT not a place to go if your hungry. The portions are ridiculously small and the price is even more ridiculous

We took a group of family here the night before a cruise. The food was fine for the price point. Nobody seemed particularly whelmed by their dishes, though none were disappointed. There was however, a dated feel to the dining experience that we couldn't shake. Part of which could be the open exposure to the lounge below, but it couldn't... More

This restaurant has a wonderfully warm ambiance, it is very clearly a fine dining establishment without being flashy or pretentious. It has beautiful views of the Burrard Inlet and the North Shore mountains. Unlike many of the local dining venues, the background music was played softly and was not at all intrusive. We were a group of seven but comfortable... More

I was here with two of my children, I wouldn't say is "child friendly" atmosphere cause its very elegant, but they were very nice to them and went an extra mile to make them feel special. We arrived without a reservation, the staff at the door was very kind and helpful, they gave my son and daughter crayons and a... More

Restaurants in hotels can sometimes disappoint, but not the Five Sails in the Pan Pacific. With views overlooking Canada Place and the North Shore mountains one's evening is always off to a good start. The menu is comprised of fresh West Coast fare prepared with the Austrian flare of the owner-chef and is always perfect, served by a very professional... More

The views across the harbour are beautiful, and the white tablecloth covered tables and silverware provide a very sophisticated atmosphere. The service was also very good, without being overbearing. If you are looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion this one fits the bill. The food is also very good, although truthfully you can get better elsewhere in... More

Description
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
Downtown
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.
