An anchor in Vancouver’s culinary landscape, Blue Water Cafe is lauded as the City’s definitive destination for seafood.
Executive Chef Frank Pabst is known for his innovative and brilliantly executed West Coast plates, insisting on using seafood from wild and sustainable harvest. Raw Bar Chef Yoshiya Maruyama is true to the Japanese culinary aesthetic of pure, clean flavours and ample portions that Blue Water Cafe’s Raw Bar has long been famous for.
Enhanced by the intuitive service from Stephan Cachard’s dedicated team, the dynamic dining room provides action views of the opposing 'East meets West' kitchen and raw bar. The sweeping main bar leads out to the heated patio and the private wine room holds the extensive award-winning wine and bubble selection
Housed in a handsome brick and beam heritage warehouse conversion, Blue Water Cafe is in the heart of historic Yaletown, the city’s vibrant and hip neighborhood.
