We had a great dinner of green salad with avocado and a subtle dressing over very fresh greens, Kobe beef cooked over hot stones individually, and then, best of all, green tea brule, topped with baby blueberries and raspberry, plum (?) sauce, and whipped cream....More

Excellent Japanese food in the this quaint little restaurant on Denman. It is busy, so make reservations. Lots of interesting dishes and always fresh. Great find for tourists who want to do something a little out of the way and different.

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
