Was last in Vancouver many years back and had wonderful meals at two of Umberto's restaurants. Both are now closed, but this newer chapter in the Umberto story is great. A warm and attractive room with a large outdoor, garden like seating area at the...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

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
