Reasonable lunch with a view - Is it possible?
i suggest Nu with their new Greek inspired menu. on WV I believe Beach is introducing a lower price point menu. they were having ownership challenges and deciding what direction they were heading. Most lunch menu are more reasonable including the one at Lift.
for patios there is also Miletsone's/Boathouse on beach/denman ave.
I've had lunch several times at boathouse in Kits Beach. which is ok if food is not the main criteria. they had a great crab chowder which is now replaced by much less spectacular lobster bisque.
Well, since Sam brought up Milestones, I can now safely suggest [wink]:
Beachside Forno (at Ambleside, used to be Crave)
The Galley Patio & Grill @ Jericho Sailing Centre
The Flying Beaver Bar & Grill (part of Mark James Group
Marina Grill (North Van, under Ironworkers Memorial Bridge
Cardero's (Coal Harbour)
Fraiche? I haven't been but the prices are in the ballpark if you eschew the lamb, and it should have the view covered if the day is clear. And if you can stand the egregious typos on the menu :-(.

re: Sam Salmon
We went once last year and the view is actually quite nice. And, on a side note, the food was better than I've had at Milestones in recent years. We tried the one on 4th again recently to see how it compared and it was not very good (over seasoned, odd-flavour combinations, etc)
Re: West Van recs, I haven't been in a long time but the Beach House at Dundarave is in a lovely ocean-front setting. Entrees exceed your price point, but the lunch offerings of sandwiches and salads are all in the $10-15 price range from a quick look at their website.
