Vancouver:Know of excellt. food with a view of street, or harbor, etc?
We will be in Vancouver for vacation and are looking for a restaurant with top quality food, but also views--either of busy city streets, or the harbor, something pretty, etc.--we aren't that picky. On this night we will leave our teens and head out ourselves, so we want to be reasonably close to the downtown area (our hotel is on Robson street, near the library end-opposite the Stanley Park end, I think.) Price doesn't matter, upscale is okay, but we don't like "stuffy" places; simple is fine too, so long as the food is good--quality, fresh food is really the focus. Any suggestions appreciated!
We were VERY impressed with our meal at Aqua Viva, right next to the cruise ship terminal. Expected it to be a tourist trap because of the location, and were very pleasantly surprised. Excellent service, some stunning architectural dishes, delicious food. Plenty of tables along the window so you can get your view.
