We would never have discovered this tiny place except we met the owner at a Rotary Club meeting! The restaurant is housed in the old Stock Exchange Building which is worth a visit in itself. From 3-7, they offer "a buck a shuck," which is...More

Amazing little room, tucked at the back of an ornate old-school vancouver office building lobby. Dark, intimate, and simply about drinks and oysters. Not always a great selection, but if you want some oysters and a glass of wine or a martini before heading off...More

Here's the deal: Great city. Great location. Excellent food. The service is horrifying. The place is so small it wouldn't make economic sense to hire a "staff." So...they didn't. Thus, terrible service. PS...did I mention the oysters were terrific after about an hour's wait?

We loved this spot!! Great selection of oysters. Very tiny but great ambiance. Food was good but very small portions. My husband is a bodybuilder and definitely only a snack for him. Great for a little bite.

Like a good oyster itself, the best things often come in small packages. This can certainly be applied to "Oyster", a great little, little restaurant specializing in freshly shucked oysters and other mostly raw seafood. I cannot comment on anything but the oysters, but as...More
