This is one of those restaurants with so much potential. The views are amazing and the restaurant is nice and cosy and small. But... Reception: The guy that received us was cold and impersonal. We arrived 15mins early and he seemed irritated with us. It...More

Cafeteria style service with inside and outside seating. Good selection available and a couple of cool ones on this day hit the spot after our climb up the BCMC.

Thanks for your review. It seems you dined at our Lupin's Cafeteria here at the mountain. Certainly a great place to hit the spot after a tough hike!

Great meal here with fantastic panorama of Vancouver Bay and excellent service. We pushed the boat out and had the 5 course tasting menu with paired wines. The food was well presented but just not quite as tasty as hoped. The fish course was slightly...More

Food is ok, but we don't feel any respect. We have been traveling in Canada over two weeks and it is the first time I feel so bad ~ 對黃種人很歧視!我們在加拿大從平價到高價的餐廳,待了五家飯店,從沒有得到這種服務! 서비스 너무 안 좋아 サービスがわるすぎます

The observatory has a tremendous view. It would never make it as a restaurant though if it weren’t situated where it is. The food was very small portions and very expensive. They’d do better to serve hearty dishes, especially in the winter because when you...More
