So happy when Il Giardino re-opened in Vancouver. Restauarant has great Tuscan decor, big place but feels cozy. Had drinks at the bar while we waited for our table, great cocktails. Dinner was fantastic, we had the carpaccio appetizer which was delicious, black ink pasta...More

Umberto selected a delicious red wine to start our lunch and even tested it first before serving to us. We followed with 4 appys and salads - beef carpaccio, smoked salmon, caesar salad and roasted duck confit salad - all lovely. Sipped for a time...More

Il Giardino did not disappoint. Our early reservation (at 6:00 pm on a Saturday night) was absolutely essential. Walk ins were turned away throughout the evening so I would not leave things to chance on a weekend. Our group of 6 enjoyed a variety of...More

I was a little skeptical that this restaurant would live up to its reputation, but there were no disappointments. Our server, Phillipe, was excellent in every way: prompt and friendly, knowledgeable about both the food and wine menu. Aside from some very loud & obnoxious...More

If possible get a patio table. Lovely. Service was very friendly and prompt. Well varied menu. All four of us had some thing different and all great. As well, good wine selection with some moderately priced good ones.

We walked by this restaurant earlier in the day (when it was closed) and decided to go back for dinner. When we arrived, the place was packed and buzzing (Wednesday night). With no reservations we ate outside. It was a bit chilly but worth it....More

A long standing Vancouver institution that has been around longer than I can remember. The food is beautifully executed as are cocktails and service. This is a lovely Italian setting with a iconic garden patio to enjoy in summer. Prices can go through the roof...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
