We will be staying in Vancouver for 4 days (one day we will be going to Victoria). I am trying to narrow dine my three dinner meals in your fine city. I am looking for "the Vancouver experience" and things that I do not normally get at home ( my husband and I are from Los Angeles and I was born and raised in NYC).
Food quality is important, but so is atmosphere for me. I do not necessarily need "very high end places" or "fine dining" either. We love Italian food, but I have been reading that your Asian inspired restaurants are great. We usually spend about 100-120 USD for a meal for two people.
These are the places I am leaning towards:
CActus Club in Coal Harbor- I am not a fan of chains...but this place looks so great and I love the atmosphere and views. They do not take reservations which I am concerned about :(
Blue wAter CAfe- My hubs and I are healthy eaters and want to try out the great fish in your area
La queciera (sp) Looks fantastic...but I have many Italian places on our trip(we are going to seattle too) and we are also going to a tasting meal at the Herbfarm in Washington
Maenam or Bao Bei- These look unique and I love the Bao BEi menu and the space.
We plan to have dinner in Victoria one night....either il terrazo or cafe brio
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
