dinners near coal harbor

Visiting Vancouver for the first time for 5 nights and would like to sample the city's cuisine. Some fine dining, some moderate. Our apt. is near Coal Harbor. Suggestions?

  1. Coal Harbour itself is not great for cuisine but you are not far from Gastown which has many wonderful options.

    Fine dining - L'abbatoir, Chambar, Boneta
    Moderate - Sardine Can, Wildebeest (this one just opened - should be very "buzzy")

      Lower Robson, as well as the north half of Denman, both have a good mix and variety of venues, and are well within walking distance from Coal Harbor.

        Wouldn't call Wildebeest moderately priced, the meals may be $18 but the sizes match a L'Abbatoir appy. It's also *just* opened so I'd give that a few weeks for a full-on meal (I had to send a dish back, which I almost never do). The interior is spectacular. It'd be a great place to go for a cocktail or glass of wine to check out the buzz.

        There are a lot of great Ramen places on lower Robson as well as Tavola / Nook at the Robson & Denman area for moderately priced Italian/pizza.
