Stanley Park gets huge kudos for being one of the great urban recreation areas in North America. But it has some pretty darn good food, too. Ranging from the upscale divine to the quick and casual , it's easy to find the right dining experience for a romantic dinner for two or a midday snack.
With a breathtaking view of English Bay, The Teahouse serves fine-dining fare in an exceptional setting. Featuring local ingredients, the menu offers a fusion of Northwest flavours with a touch of French flair, including the signature dish of B.C. salmon. The wine list is as impressive as the views. While dinners shine, the weekend brunch is equally as big a hit. Did we mention the view?
For a decidedly seafood-focused experience, The Fish House features a wide selection of oysters, salmon bakes (including a Wellington), stews and, of course, a classic halibut-and-chips dish - all served in a 19th-century historic building set in a beautiful garden. Many of the dishes feature locally bottled and extremely flavourful Olive and Ciboulette Lobster Oil, which is available for purchase at the restaurant, too. Brunch is also served on weekends.
On the more casual side is Stanley's Park Bar & Grill, which features an immense patio that juts out from the Stanley Park Pavilion and can seat about 200. While also focusing heavily on local ingredients, the seasonally open restaurant (June through September) features a great beer and wine list, burgers and more traditional entrees. It overlooks the rose gardens surrounding the Pavilion.
The Prospect Point Restaurant & Café also offers casual fare including salads, sandwiches, burgers and a seafood-heavy entrée list. It has a large patio overlooking the Burrard Inlet and includes an express cafe for a quick bite while passing through the park.
