Vancouver Downtown/Gastown Restaurant Advice

Hello BC board!

Like many people (even just on this board), I'll be in downtown Vancouver for a brief trip this summer. I've been doing some research on eating and wanted to ask your opinions of some restaurants. My wife and I will be staying between Canada Place & Gastown near the waterfront, and I was hoping to stick within walking distance of there for a few meals.

Sat. Lunch: I was thinking the Mill Marine Bistro (Cordova & Bute) on the waterfront. We'll be eating with some older diners, who aren't very adventurous eaters, and this is near Canada Place where we'll be.

Sat. Dinner: I'm thinking possibly Guu Otokomae, if we feel like eating at an izakaya. If not, I'm thinking Boneta, Chambar, or L'Abattoir. I'm a bit confused about differences between the atmosphere & pricing of these three. The food at all three sounds good. I was hoping to stay under $50/person (including maybe a glass of wine).

Sun. breakfast: Something quick & quintessentially Canadian — Tim Horton's.

Sun. lunch: Probably one of the Japadog stands near the waterfront (grabbing a quick lunch on the way to the airport).

If anyone has any strong opinions about these, or ideas for other places in the same area, I'd love to hear them.

Thanks, An LA Chowhound
