one of Vancouver's more upscale restaurants is located in the attractive Yale Town district, easily reachable by public transport as well as by car (parking may be an issue). The menu comprises of mostly exquisite fish courses, and the atmosphere is pleasant.

The scotch selection is simply amazing. My friend and I spent almost $300 just tasting a few of them. Excellent service. However the food was just so-so. Wasn't big fan of the ambiance/layout of the place, it's more geared towards an older demographic.

My wife and I ate here last night. We didn’t really know what to expect going into it, but overall were happy with the experience, albeit a little shocked at the cost. The blue water boasts that it’s Ocean wise, and it is. All of...More

Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its
rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of
Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place
responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques
and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the
waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting
