pleine vue sur la mer

Bons plats de poisson et de fruits de mer. C'est un restaurant parfait pour un petit tête-à-tête avec une superbe vue sur l'océan. Probablement un des restaurants les mieux situés à Vancouver.

A Reliable Choice for Dinner

Suppose you're looking for a spot for dinner and want to be in a quintessential Vancouver location that serves great meals. You would be hard pressed to find a better choice than the Boathouse in English Bay. Although, that said I hear that they took over the old Watermark locatioon at Kits Beach so maybe this location has some competition. Not sure what the other reviewer was talking about in their review...an off night perhaps...because we were there at the tail end of summer and had a great time. We were given a seat, without reservations, on what is undoubtedly the best deck in Vancouver and were afforded expansive views of English Bay as the sun was setting and the people ambled by on the seawall below. The food was excellent and we loved sitting and chatting while never feeling rushed out of such primo seats. Their specialty is seafood although they do land based choices very well as well. Next time you're looking for a place to take out of town guests or just a place to chill and remind yourself why you live in Vancouver hit the Boathouse and you won't be disappointed!

POOR SERVICE & FOOD

Service was so slow that we had to ask for our food twice. Service was selective & people who came later were served first. Quality of fish & chips was so bad that I thought I was in some greasy spoon location.

When it comes to beachside dining, it doesn’t get more picturesque than The Boathouse. The elevated patio overlooking English Bay is the perfect scenic locale to enjoy a romantic dinner date or an evening with friends. Unsurprisingly, the seafood-forward menu is focused on world-class fish dishes that are executed in an elegant-yet-casual manner.
