Don’t go there. Food is acceptable, their burger is great. Cocktails are of poor quality compared to what Vancouver has to offer. But the problem is the service and the honesty and integrity of their server. I went there 4 month ago and was served...More

High quality bistro menu, freshly prepared food that isn't afraid to use the most indulgent ingredients. We had liver pate, duck rillettes, bone marrow and fois gras, all made to perfection and served with detailed care. We sat at the bar and this is definitely...More

You must go have cocktails at Pour House in Gastown. It was one of the best memories of our trip. They take care to make craft cocktails and you won't be disappointed. Really well executed.

The service here was very good. The only downside was that their bar selection is limited to only liquors that were mainly served during the prohibition period of America and Canada (i.e. gin, vermouth, brandy). I sadly am a rum lover so I was behind...More

Went there three times while in Vancouver, amazing place. Food is spot on. Staff superb, always on top of the game, it's all about the details and they always got them right. Perfect value for money. Only down thing is that they don't take reservations...More

Went here on a recommendation. We liked it as soon as we walked in because it was comfortable and cozy without sacrificing style. The drinks and food were just as enjoyable as the restaurant itself.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
