Need Anniversary Dinner for Parents in Vancouver or Victoria

cookieyumyum | May 6, 2008 04:01 PM

Hi all,

My parents will be taking a trip to Vancouver and Victoria in late June.

As a present, my sister and I wanted to pay for a nice dinner there!!!

Any advice on restaurants that we could get a certificate from or is our best bet to give them some C$s & make them a reservation? Would like it to be a very nice dinner, with fresh local ingredients. Seafood would be preferable. Also, nice atmosphere and view would be wonderful.

No ultra hipster places please lol. Took my parents to one the last time I visited and they were terribly confused by small courses and techno music with minimalist decor. Also, my mom died over cheese and crackers for $17. She joked that if she brought her saltines in from the car, maybe she could just get the cheese for 8.50. lol But my Mom did say she had the best fish ever at that place in the end....

Thanks for all recs!!
