The second of three restaurants on our tasting tour for Dine Out Vancouver Festival was The SandBar Seafood Restaurant. Tucked away from the bustle of Granville Island Public Market area you can enjoy the cozy atmosphere and inspired views. Here again we enjoyed a selection of bite sized samples. Reservations for Dine Out are a must. Reservations are also available at www.dineoutvancouver.com
An outstanding selection of BC Wine pairing suggestions to enhance your dining experience.
