It’s patio season in Vancouver, and what better way to enjoy the sunshine than with a platter of freshly shucked oysters or grilled salmon? To help your visualization become a reality, we’ve rounded up several dining spots around the city that specialize in seafood and also have unbeatable summertime settings. Slather on the sunscreen and get ready to sup.
Sunset on False Creek
In a city of lovely waterside patios, the terrace at Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio is one of the loveliest, overlooking the bobbing boats along False Creek and supplying views to Granville Island.
The restaurant’s raw bar offers all sorts of seafood pleasure, too, blending Japanese, Peruvian and west coast flavors into the ceviches, tartares, sushi and sashimi.
Other tempting dishes on the summer menu include seared Haida Gwaii halibut paired with forbidden rice paella, baby squid and shrimp; and grilled bigeye tuna with soba noodles, braised daikon and yu choy. Complement the meal with a pisco sour or a glass of Japanese whiskey, as you watch the sun go down over the water.
