Some Off-Campus Dining Suggestions

Vancouver is home to far too many wonderful restaurants to list (the internet is your friend), but I've decided to list a few of my favourites in case you want to explore off campus.

Point Grey Area (30 minutes walk from campus, or 5 minutes by bus or taxi).

Provence Mediterranean Grill, 4473 West 10th Avenue

French cuisine meets West Coast sensibilities. Reassuringly expensive menu.

Enigma, 4397 West 10th Avenue

West coast from casual fare and cocktails to something more. A faculty favourite.

Burgoo, 4434 West 10th Avenue

The best in comfort food, served with style.

Kitsilano Area (15 minutes by bus or taxi)

Fable, 1944 West 4th Avenue

Superlative farm to table fare with a killer Quebec dessert. Bookings essential.

The Naam, 2724 West 4th Avenue

Vancouver's Vegan and Vegetarian heaven since the 1960s. No reservations permitted, comrade.

The Boathouse, 1305 Arbutus St (at Kits Beach)

Beers and west coast fare, but with a view to die for. Also beach volleyball.
