Established restaurant in Water Street featuring a trolley car among the Tiffany lampshades. The food is reliably good, our only complaint concerned menu choices - food is good value if you want three courses but not for a quick one course. Chose the wrong chain!...More

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

As noted above, there is street parking in Gastown, though it's usually busy. At Abbott and Cordova there is a big Easy Park lot with plenty of parking. That's probably a 3 minute walk away.
