Had the opportunity to eat at the Argo for the first time today. It is a real diner atmosphere and the food delivers. Appearance is a bit quirky but the menu and the staff, along with the chef, deliver. If I lived in the area,...More

An old time diner with decent food. Prices were average, but portions were a bit anemic. We really enjoyed the gritty industrial neighbourhood Argo was located, as the cafe still retains a lot of its old school charm. The waitress and staff were very friendly...More

Limited menu but decent selections. Basically a mixture of pasta, steak and burgers plus specials for the day. They do not have license for wine so maybe a problem for those who like to have something to match the food?

Currently working nearby and based on a review tried the Mexican poutine. Brilliant. Tasty and lots of it. Friendly and witty service as a diner should have. Clearly a going concern with a varied clientele. Will go back for more.

Good food, good prices and friendly staff! So far, I've tried their basic breakfast ($6.95) and their steak and eggs ($14.95). Both were delicious.👌🏼...looking forward to trying something off their lunch and dinner menus!

Stumbled across this place while staying in Olympic Village. The food was really tasty and very, very reasonably priced.

We didn't expect to find a genuine diner in Vancouver, but Argo is exactly that. The waitress was very friendly, and most of the other diners seemed like locals. We ordered simple chicken burgers, and they were good. Parking can be difficult.

Southeast False Creek
Developed alongside the Vancouver Olympic Village for
the 2010 Winter Games, a past fraught with hardship
has recently been overcome, and builders are changing
the landscape on the ground of Southeast False Creek
at a rapid pace. With waterfront dining, ultra-modern

parks, and rest spots built into the ever-changing
infrastructure, it's a fast-paced and mutable spot to
