My colleague had the oysters: three different kind and they were excellent. She ended up order another serving of oyster. We also had crab cakes and lobster poutine. Lobster poutine was good. Service was very fast.

Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its
rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of
Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place
responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques
and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the
