There’s something about eating nachos on a rooftop patio, seaside, watching the sunset’s reflection bounce off the walls of a glass city nestled amidst mountains that really makes for a memorable dining experience. The nachos at the Jericho Sailing Centre’s rooftop restaurant are served on a huge platter with lots of cheese, olives, black beans, corn, and jalapeño peppers, and there’s definitely something magical about them. There’s lots of guacamole, smoky salsa and sour cream on the side as well.
Grab a burger, fish and chips or a plate of nachos and secure a table on the Jericho Sailing Club’s high deck overlooking the ocean. During the summer, this is arguably the best sunset viewing in the city. Just before the day ends, when the city to the east is a-sparkle with a golden hue and the mountaintops turn pink, this is your cue to order another frosty pitcher and appreciate Vancouver in all its glory.
As you watch kayakers haul in their boats and sailors rig up their Lasers, you’ll find there’s no better beachside joint for a casual bite than the Jericho Sailing Club. Here, they welcome salty skin and sand between your toes. Order inside from their concession-style kitchen — burgers, fish and chips, nachos — and then settle into their patio overlooking the city, the North Shore and the mountains to the west with cold drinks and big, contented smiles. This is the epitome of summer.
