We decided to stop in for a drink and snacks on a rainy afternoon. They have a small selection of wines by the glass and some and some nice beers. Not bad at all. We decided to split a fish and chips and we both...More

Wonderful food, service and staff! Especially enjoyed the breakfast menu. The bar with its live music was excellent and it overlooks the bay.

The location and the history of hotel is the main draw of the lounge & restaurant. It was more of a restaurant for Seniors or families reliving their memories of family vacations in the '70,'80','90s. Loved the hotel and loved the convenience of the lounge...More

We came for brunch and other than the beautiful location on English Bay we would not come back. The food was average and service was impersonal and rushed. English Bay has many restaurants so will try another one instead of coming back here.

We had lunch and breakfast at the Sylvia. Breakfast was the better of the two meals. The setting can’t get better. The florentine eggs benedict were delicious. Wonderful coffee. Excellent service. What can be better than a great breakfast overlooking English Bay?

Was a great sunny morning for breakfast with friends. The restaurant itself is quite charming and unique the food is OK . Are usually based my reviews on eggs Benedict and well it was good the hollandaise sauce was a little on sparse side.

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
