Eats: Vancouver

Eats: Vancouver, Vancouver, Canada (B)

No matter how near or far you are from home, a recommendation for a good restaurant or bar is always nice to have. EATS is a collection of places that I’ve enjoyed during my travels.

For dinner with a waterfront view, you can’t go wrong with The Boathouse at Kitsilano Beach. This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who said that it’s best at sunset, and we were lucky to get a table along the windows for prime positioning. The Boathouse prides itself in its locally-sourced ingredients, and has a broad menu of seafood dishes, sharable platters and a handful of steaks and salads. My husband ordered the Wild Maple Salmon (when in Canada…) and I had the West Coast grilled chicken salad, which was topped with mango salsa, green chickpeas and goat cheese.

Service was friendly and attire is on the more casual side of business casual (I always wonder about dress code when traveling). Its location is great too if you’re staying Downtown, as it was an easy 20 minute walk from our hotel. The Boathouse has 6 other locations throughout Vancouver, including one at English Bay, all of which come with a waterfront view. What I loved most about this location at Kitsilano Beach is that it’s the perfect spot for a post-dinner walk or to sit on one of the big logs and watch the sun disappear into the ocean. ......
