Where to eat near Downtown Vancouver?
Hi there! My boyfriend and I are going to be staying in Downtown Vancouver for Valentine's Day and we want to know where to eat! We have a decent budget for our trip, but don't want to spend 100 for a dinner for two. (The Gotham steakhouse is near our hotel, for example, and I've decided it's too expensive).
Any suggestions for some good food on the cheap in Downtown Vancouver?
I like Nuba on Hastings and Cambie. Wherever you decide to go make sure you make a res. Valentine's Day is a very busy night for the restaurants.
Assuming your $100 budget includes drinks (if you drink), taxes and tip, you can squeak by at places like Hamilton Street Grill and others similar but you won't be eating filet mignons and such ;-)
A place like La Brasserie might appeal to your BF, as it's Franco-German continental cuisine. It's "romantic" ambiance too.
But like Waylman said, make sure you get a reservation well ahead of time no matter where you choose to go.
Good point ! We've never made resos when we went there because it was always by 5:30pm at the latest, so we can be done and back home by 7:30pm and relieve the babysitter.
