Located on Granville Island across the water from Yaletown, The Dockside Restaurant & Bar at The Granville Island Hotel simply offers one of the best dining experiences and views in the city. Period.
Dockside operates on two fundamental principles: openness and honesty. The open kitchen provides a centrepiece to the beautiful dining room, with its floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a panoramic view of downtown Vancouver. Even better, their multiple award-winning patio is in an ocean of calm, catching light all day. Their recent renovations added fireplaces and casual seating areas, creating an elegant but accessible dining experience.
The menu is also focused on quality combinations that rely on the freshest ingredients and best, Oceanwise-certified seafood. As they say, their food is “honest and unfussy,” just like their dining rooms and patio, achieving a purity that only comes with confidence and quality.
Wine and beer lovers are also in for a treat at The Dockside Restaurant and Bar, which has one of the city’s only in-house breweries that offers eight unique beers, including their uber-yum Haupenthal Hefeweizen and signature Cartwright Pale Ale. For the wine aficionado, their cellar houses a 150-bottle selection to pair with their creations coming from the central forno oven. This Granville Island institution recommends reservations. We recommend multiple visits. Don’t take our word for it though, video doesn’t lie…
