Meet the owner

Chambar’s Nico Schuermans has cooked for the likes of Mick Jagger, Prince and former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Notable singer-songwriter Lou Reed and supermodel Cindy Crawford have also visited his restaurant. So how does this award-winning chef attract so many A-list diners?

It all starts with roots in his native Belgium. Nico's grandfather was a serious foodie who exposed his grandson to a number of different restaurants throughout his youth. “By the age of 14, I had a summer job in a three-Michelin-starred French restaurant,” Nico recalls.

Nico went on to graduate from the prestigious CREPAC School of Culinary Arts in Belgium. The classically trained chef was soon honing his skills at several famous European eateries, including a stint as chef de partie at the then three-Michelin-starred Comme Chez Soi in Brussels.

went for a casual get together and left feeling like an inconvenience. the service was awful, rushed, and our particular server made it abundantly clear that he had no time nor patience for us. worst dining experience in a long time and will never go back.

Don't go here

The service was so bad I was absolutely a palled. Medina has the exact same food and much better quality service. Our server was so rude to us he rolled his eyes and glared at us when we asked for sparkling water and then avoided our table the entire time we were there, we had to eventually talk to a manager about how terrible the service was. He handled it very well but this is not my first terrible experience at Chambar, the staff needs an attitude check.

I have been here a few times with different people and have always enjoyed myself. It is best to make a reservation. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, bright, lots of space between tables. Good amount of seating. The service has always been very good. Many good things in the menu to try and on my last visit we had a few of their daily specials and my out of town guests were just wowed by the meal.

Great for Dates!

I was taken to Chambar for a first date, and let me just say, that this place was perfect. The food is great, the service is attentive and professional, the cocktail menu is impressive, and overall, a pretty darn good dining experience. If you’re looking to take someone out for a special occasion, this place is the winner. Make sure to make a reso though, otherwise, you’re looking at either a long wait, or having to settle for another place to go instead.

Classy

My friends and I went to Chambar on a Frfiday evening after a show at the Playhouse Theatre. I have been to Chambar a few times and found it inconsistent, but all our food on Friday was great. Our waiter was kind and knew his drinks and the menu. Just skip the appies and the cakes.

Dine Out Vancouver: Upscale restaurants for serious foodies

Dine Out Vancouver: Upscale restaurants for serious foodies

Sampling the heavenly moules frites at Chambar is a rite of passage for Vancouver fine-dining fans. The restaurant has earned critical acclaim for its striking decor, memorable menu – which combines Belgian and North African flavours – and fine wine selection, but manages to maintain an unpretentious atmosphere that welcomes families, well-heeled clientele and sports fans alike. For the Dine Out festival, Chambar has created an elegant three-course menu and the aforementioned mussels will be available in two styles: Congolaise (tomato, coconut cream and smoked chili) or Vin Blanc (white wine, butter, celery and leeks).

Best places in Vancouver to enjoy a film-inspired cocktail

Chambar’s interior of exposed brick walls, funky lights and Belgian inspiration creates a welcoming and fun space. Paying homage to a cult classic, Chambar’s VIFFtail is the Death Proof, a delicious chartreuse-hued, gin-based cocktail that’s fittingly linked to the Quentin Tarantino slasher film of the same name.
