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