Vancouver Seafood Restaurants

Vancouver, surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean, has just fantastic seafood. If you like fish at all, be sure to have some while you’re here. Try salmon if you get a chance, since there are not many places in the world where you will see salmon this fresh and delicious.

The halibut is excellent as well. So is every other kind of fish that lives in these waters. Try spot prawns, arctic char or dungeness crab if you find them in a market or on a menu.
