Went there for a big birthday bash and had never been there before. Very casual, great prices on casual eats but most of all the staff was amazing. They all worked together as a team... fast, friendly and fun. Has a something on the menu for everyone if your looking for good prices on food and drinks.

This place was a huge turn down for us: we were waiting for an Outback-style restaurant, but we ended up in here. The food was not bad - but not great also. The price is ok, but not worth a visit.

This is fast becoming our local in Vancouver. With the friendliest owner ever, friendly staff and a personable experience, Moose's Down Under will fast become your favourite Ex pat pub. The food is decent, but stay for the service.

After a long day of a work conference we stopped in to have a drink and a snack. We were welcomed by a delightful waitress that was friendly, attentive and provided us with great service. We went back the next night for dinner and joined in their Tuesday Trivia game. Every Aussie there took great care and served up delicious... More

A friend had been raving about the Aussie Burger at Moose's for quite some time now. I thought I'd give it a try and I must admit that it tasted fantastic and I'd consider it one of the best burgers in Vancouver. Another dish that I enjoyed recently at Moose's is the Chicken Parma. I like how the food and... More

I have been craving a real pie since I left AU two years ago and finding Mooses Downunder was like finding my Nirvana. They have all the Aussie classics done the right way like chicken parmy, steak sangas and also Vegemite sangas, thick gravy and CHICKEN SALT! on your chips. The pies are homemade inhouse. According to my Canadian friend... More

My parter and I are both Australian and decided to check out this place.

The place was kind of hard to find as it's... More

Went to a business networking event. The service was amazing. Convenient location in downtown Vancouver and near the waterfront. Casual food choices, good beer selection, and a flare of Australia. Met Corina the owner, who was diligently helping her team out. Very friendly. Good location for a networking event.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
