When you come in, you forget that you're in VCC. It feels like you just entered a fine dining French restaurant. Food is very high quality and very well plated. Serving staff is efficient and friendly. Reservations recommended as it can get busy.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
