The food is delicious and the atmosphere is amazing. The chicken parmesan was the best! For one price you get bread, soup/salad, meal and ice cream for dessert. Highly recommend!

I loved the place with the street car it hss in it. The staff as the door are not that welcoming. Once you are seated service changes and servers are attentive to everything. Food is good and menu price is unbeatable.

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.
