Vancouver restaurants for your next visit or date.


Whether you are planning a visit, new to the city or planning a date night, these Vancouver restaurants are all good options for your list.

1/ Miku Restaurant


Miku is for sushi lovers and those wanting to try sushi for the first time. The fish is so fresh and looks so delicious that it makes choosing hard. Luckily, the restaurant offers sampling plates so that you can taste it all. Pair it with a saki sampler or your favorite beer. Whether you go for lunch or dinner, you won’t be disappointed.

2/ Acquafarina


Go for the extensive wine cellar, exceptional ingredients and an elevated experience. Whether you’re celebrating something special or want to treat yourself to a lovely dinner out, Acquafarina is a great choice. The restaurant bar offers the full menu which can turn dinner into a fun night out.

3/ JOS


Located in Coal Harbour, JOS is arguably the best pizza in Vancouver. The dough is made fresh every day and cooked in a wood burning pizza oven. The salads are equally as fresh and good. It’s the perfect restaurant for casual outdoor dining when the sun is out or cozy indoor dining on a Raincouver night.

4/ Monarca – Cocina


New to Gastown, Monarca offers a more modern version of Mexican food that tastes clean and delicious. The squash tacos are a personal favorite. It’s a perfect option whether you go for happy hour before an event like the Gastown walking tour or dinner afterwards.

5/ Cardero’s


Cardero’s always makes everyone’s list. The outdoor patio and the live music are the reasons it makes my list. It has one of the best covered outdoor dining patios in the city and routinely offers live music inside. Go for a meal or just a night cap and the music to add an experience to a date night.
