I think the Vancouver Fish Company was the biggest surprise of the evening when us media types did a grand tour of three Granville Island restaurants participating in Dine Out Vancouver Festival starting January 18 and running until February 3, 2019.
And a very pleasant surprise it was. Clearly the Vancouver Fish Company knows seafood and how to prepare some fabulous fare. “Home of Amazing Seafood and West Coast Hospitality” is their mantra and I would concur. Although we enjoyed just a sampling of each dish it was enough to recommend Vancouver Fish Company as a “must visit” during Dine Out Vancouver Festival. We suggest you make your reservation without delay.
I was especially impressed with the number of excellent BC Wines available and suggested for pairing. Both the wines and the dishes are very good value.
