West End

Restaurants in West End

Though every Vancouverite has a different (equally strong) opinion about the city’s best sushi-and-Japanese restaurant, the upscale, hip Kingyo gets consistently high marks.

If you’ve yet to try Malaysian cuisine, this snug, romantic, batik-decorated West End dining room is the place to do it.

Meals are theatrical events at this Chinese noodle shop, where part of the fun is watching the chefs behind the counter whipping up fresh noodles.

Cardero’s large harborside patio—with its unimpeded views of Stanley Park, the Coast Mountains, and seaplanes landing just offshore—may be Vancouver’s loveliest alfresco dining spot.

For 16 years, this Vancouver classic with shamelessly romantic views over English Bay has stayed pretty much packed to capacity (reservations here are essential).
