L'Abattoir is located in the center of Gastown between historic Gaoler's Mews and Blood Alley. The restaurant was built in the 19th century and is the site of Vancouver's first jail.

It is so hip that it is formulaic and unoriginal. Unless you have never traveled or are under 30, then the room is cool and the menu unique. The menu and the food was top notch, except for the undercooked meat. The food was delivered...More
The food and cocktails were amazing at L'Abbatoir. Service was a little meh. Kind of the too cool for school vibe, thus the four stars. Glad we got a table in the back along the alley (quieter) where we watched ghost tours walk back and...More
